Which Building Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Bracknell

    A Homebuyer Report is the right choice if you are buying a property constructed from standard materials such as tile and brick, in reasonable order and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Bracknell

    A Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Bracknell) is also carried out by a RICS accredited surveyor and is more thorough. Select this when buying a non standard , for example granite wall houses.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Bracknell

    This is an independent valuation of the property. This is often chosen by cash buyers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Bracknell and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Bracknell property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Bracknell property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations I should look into when buying a period property in Bracknell inside a conservation area, particularly in respect of to house prices?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Surveyors in Bracknell must have sufficient knowledge of local considerations and any connection may have on the building and its value. Values will probably be higher as a result of the areas retaining original features.

Property surveyors are trained to advise you whether the property looks like it may be is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Bracknell Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised by your legal adviser. Unsympathetic developments to the building will also be noted, however these should be investigated by your legal representative.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about pests. How do we investigate further?

Property in Bracknell will often be free of major infestations. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Treatment for insect infestation may include professional cleaning and destruction of tainted materials. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Bracknell house surveyor check possible flooding, or if the garden have been affected?

Overflowing rivers, rain and tides could all cause major flooding, and the value of a house in an at-risk area may be impacted. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the house in question is in danger, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the residents, but this information may not be accurate.
