About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Dersingham

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Dersingham property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Dersingham property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate

The Homebuyer Report contains an independent valuation as well as a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. To estimate the market value your chartered surveyor will take into account local property market knowledge and other things relating to the property for instance: state of repair Your Dersingham surveyor will also consider construction methods and make certain other assumptions, for example the ground is not land filled.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor also assumes that there aren't any serious legal issues for example there being no outstanding claims. Such concerns will be clarified by your legal representative during the legal process.

Additional local Dersingham area conjectures, like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like busy roads, which will also be factored in.

Other external areas of the property

In a Dersingham HomeBuyer Report what impact can a Condition rating 3 have on 'E9 - Other' ?

An example of this is rotation of beams in a conservatory roof. This category is used for external elements that require reporting which do not fit into the other categories.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific residence being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. If a residence does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect does rainfall have on a home, and does our Dersingham property surveyor mention it? If there is necessary work, will they be costly to fix?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the impact rain can have on a property is often overlooked by home buyers. For instance, spalling masonry strongly suggest that the gutters are worth a closer look. This can lead to penetrating damp.

Fortunately, guttering issues are quite easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously.However, the damage caused, where not cared for, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor give details on the safety of the gas supply?

Your chartered surveyor will locate and visually survey any accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at the routing of any gas pipes as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated fixtures e.g. chimney breasts. Your Dersingham qualified RICS surveyor won't actually remove fittings nor will the surveyor conduct any tests on the system or appliances. Of course, gas is potentially deadly, should there be any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.
