Home Buyers Survey in Hillsborough

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Hillsborough and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Hillsborough property's general condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact can wet weather have on our new Hillsborough home? Also, if there are problems, will they be troublesome to fix?

Regular rainfall is common in Hillsborough and across the country, but the effect which high levels of rainfall has on a residence is rarely paid due attention. If you have investigated the home in warm weather, obvious defects may be harder to find. Whether buying in Hillsborough or elsewhere, difficult drainage does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix. If poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Hillsborough, and will the HomeBuyer Report investigate indications of flooding damage?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a property will be secure against floods. Both home purchasers and home owners in areas at a high risk of flooding are right to be worried. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. The home survey may also, where appropriate, offer suggestions for better flood defences.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the Hillsborough house or on adjacent sites. The property surveyor will usually recommend that the home purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Hillsborough property will include a valuation and also a reinstatement cost estimate. To work out the property's value your chartered surveyor will take into account knowledge of Hillsborough as well as other factors about the property for instance: accommodation Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and make certain other assumptions such as there being no major problems. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further Hillsborough conjectures, such as use of communal grounds or the property being insurable, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like the area being prone to flooding, also being considered.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
