HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Frinton On Sea and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Frinton On Sea property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey instead.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report will contain an independent valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost. To estimate an accurate value estimate your independent surveyor will use local property market knowledge and other things about the property for instance: size. Surveyors also evaluate construction type and will draw upon other assumptions e.g. no damaging building techniques have been used.

A Building Survey won't 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.

Further Frinton On Sea assumptions, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to Frinton On Sea environmental problems like pig farms, which will also be factored in.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the home I expect to purchase I saw that there is an unsafe electrical system; will a Frinton On Sea Homebuyer Report give details on on the wiring and fusebox?

During a Building Survey in Frinton On Sea your RICS surveyor will remark on the condition of the electrics if it is obvious that they are in a poor state.

This will include an overview inspection (without removing any fittings) of exposed areas of the wiring and other possible problems relating to things like reporting on the condition of the fitted electrical appliances like storage heaters or checking the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey.

The IEE advise that a Periodic Inspection be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).
