Home Buyers Survey in Selhurst

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Selhurst and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Selhurst property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension on the Selhurst property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Selhurst property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the house we want to move into we think we noticed that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system - does a Selhurst Homebuyer Report write anything on electrical defects?

When conducting a Selhurst Homebuyer Report the surveyor will usually make a note on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a poor state of repair. The RICS surveyor is required to provide detail on things like whether there is an on-peak/off-peak mains supply. Examining the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the Homebuyer report in Selhurst.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of any recent PIR handled by an electrician will form part of the survey.

The IEE advocate that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition is carried out at least every 10 years (5 if letting).

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Selhurst building will include an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate as part of the report. To fully consider the property's value your RICS valuer will use experience of property in Selhurst and other things relating to the property e.g. style of architecture The surveyor will also consider construction methods and will use key assumptions e.g. the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. RICS valuations assume that there are no impossible to rectify legal issues e.g. there being no on going disputes. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area conjectures like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like local Selhurst industrial considerations, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
