Rebuild Cost Assessment Form
You can submit your rebuild cost details on our online form, and we will contact you to take payment of the survey fee.
Alternatively, you can call us at 0800 0149 301, and we will take the payment over the phone and provide the survey address details to arrange the rebuild calculator survey.
The surveyor will use the latest assessment tools that are available online. This is important to arrive at the correct rebuilding value for your property. To begin with, they can do this by accessing google earth and having a look at the location of the building. They will also look at other online resources to ensure that your rebuild cost calculator is as accurate as possible.
The other online resources will be Find Maps, Google Earth street view, aerial view, and Bing maps. Together with Zoopla, and Right move, the surveyor can build up a picture of the size of your property (its footprint) and the total area of the plot. Outbuildings must also be taken into account when using the rebuild cost calculator.
The survey will also access the Local Authority Planning online to help with the rebuild cost calculator process.
Once the surveyor has the information he needs, he can start assessing the rebuild value using the RICS BCIS Data, which will provide a rebuilding value for your property based on the square footage or meterage.
The RICS has a database of all building types, from detached to terraced, and the materials the property will be constructed. Once they bring the BCIS data into the rebuild cost calculator, they can formulate a very accurate rebuilding value for your property. Indeed, not a valuation that an insurer’s loss adjuster could challenge.
Typical properties we will offer rebuilding values for:
The process will ensure that the rebuild calculator is accurate and professionally prepared for £235.00 (inc VAT) so that you can have peace of mind that the whole process has been carried out with skill and diligence to ensure the rebuild valuation for your property is accurate a humanely possible.
The rebuild calculator report will explain how the surveyor arrived at the rebuild cost. This will include identifying the materials in which the property is constructed. It is likely in most cases; this would be brick. Other standard construction materials would be steel, stone, or concrete. Any other material would need to be considered when using the rebuild calculator.
Other materials can influence the rebuild cost as they may be in short supply or simply unavailable. This is particularly important if the building is listed and complies with building regulations. Especially if a specific stone, for example, may have to be sourced from a particular quarry. The quarry may have stopped operating many years ago. For this reason, obtaining the correct information regarding the building materials used to construct your property is essential for the rebuild calculator system.
The surveyor will also take into account the materials used in the construction of the roof. In most cases, this is straightforward, as most properties in the UK use either slate or tile for their roofs. But what if your property has a thatched roof or a metal roof? Then the rebuild calculator can consider this when preparing the rebuild calculator report.
