Home Buyers Survey in South East England

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in South East England and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the South East England property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the South East England property's state of repair along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a garage) and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report contains an impartial valuation and a cost of reinstatement as a standard part of the survey. To estimate the market value your independent surveyor will use local South East England market factors and other considerations about the property for instance: style of architecture The RICS surveyor will also consider construction type and draw upon key assumptions such as no damaging building techniques have been used.

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

Further South East England assumptions, like the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant South East England environmental problems like pig farms, which will also be factored in.

Building Surveys on apartments

I am acquiring a neglected regency apartment home in South East England, is it necessary to upgrade to a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name and is now entitled the Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a post 1950s unmodified South East England apartment of conventional construction materials. RICS would recommend that you get a Building Survey for the apartment you are planning to buy.

You should be aware of certain caveats exist with a Building Survey as a South East England surveyor cannot force or open up the fabric of the building for example, or inspect any part that could risk personal injury.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a farmhouse. What should be budgeted for upkeep?

For houses in South East England built before the 20th Century, age can occasionally give buyers second thoughts, and South East England property built with traditional methods can be a drain to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of South East England listed buildings. This may mean expensive ongoing repairs.
