Home Buyers Survey in Westcliff On Sea

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Westcliff On Sea and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Westcliff On Sea property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Westcliff On Sea property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

We are investing in an extended Victorian end of terrace home in Westcliff On Sea, is it necessary to go for a full structural survey?

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Westcliff On Sea surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a retaining wall) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Westcliff On Sea property will include a property valuation and a rebuilding cost. To ascertain the property's value your surveyor will take into account local Westcliff On Sea market factors and other factors relating to the property for instance: style of architecture. Surveyors also examine style of architecture and use other assumptions like the property is connected to mains services such as gas.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local Westcliff On Sea area assumptions, for example services, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like railways, also being considered.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact will wet weather have on our new Westcliff On Sea house? Could damaged guttering lower the property value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However this issue is not given the attention it deserves by buyers. One indication that drainage systems are at risk is rusted iron elements. Blocked rainwater goods can result in fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

Fortunately, problems with drains are quite easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. If not cared for, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
