Homebuyer Report

The Homebuyer Report

The main features of a Homebuyer Report are:

  • It is an economy package. Owing to the practical limits of the type of property and the scope of its coverage, the Homebuyer Service is priced economically – more expensive than the lender’s mortgage valuation, but less than the Building Survey
  • The surveyor’s main objectives are to assist the client in making a reasoned and informed judgement on whether to proceed with the purchase,  to assess whether or not the agreed price is reasonable and to be clear as to what decisions/action should be taken before exchange of contracts
  • The surveyor also gives his/her professional opinion on those features of the property which affect present value and might affect future re-sale potential. The concise report covers the inside and outside of the services and the site.
It focuses on defects which, in the judgement of the surveyor, are urgent or significant. It also covers:
  • The general condition and features of the property
  • Particular matters that should be referred to the client’s legal advisers
  • Other relevant considerations i.e. safety matters, location, environment, insurance etc.
