Home Buyers Survey in Oldland

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Oldland and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Oldland property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works on the Oldland property, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Oldland property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes

A Homebuyer Report will contain a surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost as standard. To be able to determine the valuation the valuer will combine area knowledge and other factors relating to the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also examine construction methods and will draw upon other assumptions like no contamination in or from ground. Surveyors don't factor in certain things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local area assumptions, such as stairway access to a flat or the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any Oldland environmental concerns like nearby pubs, also being considered.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Another resident of the building said that pooling water on the roof had been a concern. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does a RICS surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

Oldland properties that are otherwise ideal will suffer roof maintenance problems. Every element should be checked, e.g. gables. Factors like a poor asphalt covering are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Oldland, but it is a health and safety necessity. A roofing contractor can provide an estimate.
