Home Buyers Survey in West Kirby

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in West Kirby and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the West Kirby property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the West Kirby property's general condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the West Kirby home survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a West Kirby property will include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost included in the cost of the survey. In order to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building your surveyor will call upon local property market knowledge and other things about the property e.g. state of repair The valuer will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will draw upon other assumptions e.g. no damaging building techniques have been employed.

A Building Survey won't 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.

Further area assumptions, like services, are made in addition to any West Kirby environmental issues like local industry, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should I pay slightly more for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on a maisonette in West Kirby?

Building Survey is now the correct term for the Structural Survey following its new title some time ago by RICS. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice for a post fifties unmodified West Kirby maisonette of normal construction materials. A Building Survey is definitely the correct survey in relation to the maisonette mentioned. You should be aware of a number provisos exist with any survey insofar as a chartered surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the property for example, or advise whether drainage meets appropriate regulations. Permanent external structures or buildings will typically be checked out as part of the survey.
