About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Loughton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Loughton and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Loughton property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give comprehensive details of the Loughton property's condition and it includes advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Loughton Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report in Loughton will include a valuation and a "reinstatement cost". To estimate the correct valuation the valuer will refer to in depth understanding of the Loughton market and other factors relating to the property for instance: general condition Your Loughton surveyor will also consider construction type and use other assumptions e.g. no significant problems. A Building survey does not 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.

Additional local area assumptions, such as access to a flat or service connections, are made in addition to Loughton environmental problems like local mining issues, which will also be factored in.
