HomeBuyer Reports are the intermediate form of Home Survey report (Survey Level 2) which include all the features of a Condition Report, plus additonal elements, but are less in-depth compared to that of the Building Survey (see Building Survey). The cost for these services are typically mid-range i.e. less expensive than a Building Survey, but more expensive than a Condition Report.
The HomeBuyer Reports also include advice for your legal adviser and yourself on any defects discovered that may affect the property with regard to repairs, and ongoing maintenance. There are also some basic environmental-based searches undertaken.
There are two distinctive types of HomeBuyer Report:
- HomeBuyer Report (Survey & Valuation); and,
- HomeBuyer Report (Survey).
The services for the HomeBuyer Report (Survey and Valuation) include: 1) an inspection, 2) a valuation, 3) a basic insurance rebuild / reinstatement cost valuation, and 4) an electronic copy of the HomeBuyer Report. The HomeBuyer Report (Survey) does not include a market valuation or a basic insurance rebuild / reinstatement cost valuation.
The condition of the property is recorded by the surveyor on a report which uses a colour-coded traffic light system i.e. Condition Ratings 1, 2 and 3, and coloured Green, Amber, and Red respectively, all depending on the condition state of the element being surveyed.
Dependent on the type of HomeBuyer Report procured, the typical advice provided in the HomeBuyer Report will help you to make informed decisions on:
- if to proceed with purchasing the property;
- what is a reasonable price to pay;
- what parts of the property may need repairing, or replacing;
- what further advice you should seek prior to purchasing the property.
