HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Aylesbury and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Aylesbury property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Aylesbury property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a retaining wall) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report in Aylesbury will include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a Reinstatement Cost. To work out the valuation the surveyor will combine knowledge of Aylesbury and other things relating to the property e.g. number of bedrooms The surveyor will also consider materials used and will make certain key assumptions e.g. the building connected to mains services such as electricity.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any major legal problems for example consents for works having been granted. Advice should be sought from your solicitor.

Further area conjectures, such as any cost of repairs being shared amongst tenants or the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like industrial buildings, which will also be factored in.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be bugs at the property we're buying, but we are not certain - Will the Building Survey investigate this?

Pests like carpet beetle larvae may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Aylesbury. This issue should be taken seriously. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies to insect infestation can include destruction of tainted materials.RICS guidelines on the issue of pests are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your RICS surveyor. Speak to an expert, e.g. Activ-8 (Services) Ltd, Unit 56, Rabans Close, Aylesbury, Bucks, HP19 8RS on 0129 643 6378, for more detail.
