About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Drybrook

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Drybrook and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Drybrook property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you comprehensive details of the Drybrook property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the reasons in upgrading to the full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report if buying a substantially modified property?

Albeit frequently called Structural Surveys by many the correct term is now Building Surveys. This is the most appropriate choice when purchasing a modified house, for example a period house. It specifies comprehensive and far-reaching insight concerning the buildings construction and uses in addition to any maintenance needs after a thorough visual inspection of any accessible parts of the house.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a boundary wall) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a professional valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. When calculating the property's value the valuer will pair awareness of the Drybrook property market and other considerations relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location. Surveyors also evaluate certain fixtures and fittings and use key assumptions, for example there being no significant defects. Surveyors don't value things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local Drybrook area assumptions, like the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant Drybrook environmental issues like nearby railway tracks, also being considered.

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.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact could rain have on a property? Can damaged rainwater goods decrease our property's value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact high levels of rainfall can have on buildings in Drybrook is not given enough thought. If you have only seen the property you intend to purchase in on a sunny day, defects may not have been obvious, and may lead to water damage. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy, unless they are left untreated. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
