HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Bourne and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Bourne property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Bourne property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Bourne Survey Quote on our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be insects at the Bourne building we're buying, but we are not certain - What should we do?

Pests like wasps may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Bourne. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Evidence may not be easy to find, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Remedies to pest problems can include destruction of tainted materials.RICS guidelines on the issue of infestations are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your Bourne surveyor. Contact a specialist, e.g. Pestforce - Peterborough, 78 Saxon Way, Bourne, Lincolnshire, PE10 9QY, or call 0173 328 6699, to discuss remedial options.
