About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Kilburn Park

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Kilburn Park and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Kilburn Park property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer comprehensive details of the Kilburn Park property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Kilburn Park surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report includes an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost. To properly appraise the correct valuation the surveyor will call upon experience of property in Kilburn Park and other things relating to the property for instance: state of repair. The valuer will also consider style of architecture and will make certain other assumptions like the ground is not land filled. Surveyors don't factor in things like sales incentives. It will also be assumed that there is an absence of any significant legal issues like consents for works having been granted. These will be investigated by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Further Kilburn Park assumptions, for example the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like busy roads, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

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.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the unmodernised property we are meaning to lease, it looked like there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit - does a Kilburn Park Homebuyer Report advise the wiring and fusebox?

When preparing a Kilburn Park Homebuyer Report your surveyor will typically comment on the electrics if it looks like they are in an unsatisfactory state.

This should include a visual look-over of the accessible areas of the wiring or fusebox on top of concerns such as inspecting the state of repair of any fixed electrical appliances such as electric showers or where to find the meter. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Kilburn Park.

Window frame

For the Kilburn Park HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of Condition rating 3 defects for 'E5 - Windows' ?

Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. Air holes creating draughts around window frames is one defect applicable to this section.

Severe defects impacting the house are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. 'Red' defects may also need further investigation by a qualified specialist before a full assessment can be made. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the seriousness of any issues included in the survey.
