Home Buyers Survey in Linslade

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Linslade and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Linslade property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Linslade property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we saw a property we expect to move into We noticed that there were damaged electrical sockets, will a Linslade survey report on electrical defects?

When performing a Linslade Home Survey your RICS surveyor will usually mention the state of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in a dangerous state. Your surveyor should also report on possible problems relating to things like reporting on the state of repair of the fixed electrical appliances like heaters or the condition residual circuit breakers (RCD) and/or miniature circuit breakers (MCBs). Verifying the location of the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Linslade.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. To properly appraise an accurate value estimate the surveyor will combine local Linslade market factors and other things relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location. Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and use other assumptions, for example no contamination in or from ground.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there are no significant legal issues such as building regulations having been complied. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Further area conjectures, for example services, are made in addition to local environmental issues like nearby pubs, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

On a Linslade HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E8' cover?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. As buyers in Linslade are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. This section includes visual aspects of the roof, checked with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. The type and condition of such components are reported on. Paint or staining needed to protect soffits and fascia is an example.
