HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Bordon and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Bordon property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Bordon property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this property is located by a brook. Is there a major flood risk? Would our RICS surveyor check any water damage?

Heavy rain, overflowing waterways, tidal activity and poor drainage could all cause major floods. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. It is strongly recommended that prevention methods are considered, before water damage ruins both the walls and floors, and contents.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a property, such as via seepage through external walls.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a property lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a retaining wall)

A Homebuyer Report in Bordon will include an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate. To be able to determine the correct valuation your RICS valuer should use experience of property in Bordon and other things relating to the property e.g. accommodation The surveyor will also consider materials used and will make certain other assumptions such as the property is connected to mains services such as water.

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

Additional local Bordon area assumptions, such as stairway access to a maisonette or service connections, are made in addition to local environmental problems like flood plains, also being considered.

Conservation area

Are there any considerations I should look out for when buying a flat in Bordon inside a conservation area?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of relevant local considerations and the connection they have on the property and its value. House prices will be enhanced due to them retaining original features. However many areas have been neglected and are in a state of neglect for example - the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Surveyors can be expected to note whether the property looks like it may be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are conducted by your solicitor. Out of keeping extensions that do not have Local Authority approval will also be reported in the Bordon survey but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.
