HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Biddenham and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Biddenham property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a garage) and how is it worked out

Biddenham Homebuyer Reports a RICS qualified surveyor valuation as well as a reinstatement cost. To be able to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building your RICS valuer will factor in depth understanding of the Biddenham market and other things relating to the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also reflect on certain fixtures and fittings and make certain other assumptions, for example the building connected to mains services such as electricity. Surveyors will disregard things like furnishings, for example curtains. The valuation also assumes that there is an absence of any compromising legal issues for example consent for alteration having been given and complied with. Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancer.

Further Biddenham assumptions, like connection to sewers, are made in addition to any Biddenham environmental problems like industrial buildings, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Biddenham home buyers survey inquire into flood damage?

The lives of many homeowners in Biddenham and across the UK have been disrupted by water damage caused by flooding; sensible owners and buyers in Biddenham are right to consider precautions.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Stone block wall damage

Can Forest of Dean stone-built properties be hard to maintain. Are there specific problems to consider?

Poor use of coating can often cause problems for Biddenham buildings with stone walls. Problems which impact stone-built Biddenham buildings can vary greatly, with issues like stone faces being quote common. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Biddenham are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.
