Do you need a Building Survey? Which one is the right choice?

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice when planning to buy a home made of standard materials i.e. tile and brick, not dilapidated and built in the last 100 years.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Bude

    A Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Bude) will also be conducted by a MRICS or FRICS accredited surveyor but is more detailed. Opt for this when buying a non standard , for example timber wall homes.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Bude and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Bude property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the Bude property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Bude property's state of repair and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a property with a converted attic in Bude. What advice would the property surveyor give in their report?

Homes in the area that are otherwise ideal can still be subject to difficulties with the roof. From the sheathing to the wind braces, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of badly installed felting.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a builder in Bude for the job itself. Speak to M J of Fore St, Pensilva, Liskeard, PL14 5PZ on 01579 363700 for a quote.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 19th Century farmstead. Will the house's age be a concern?

For traditionally-built Bude property, age can create issues for homeowners, and Structures showcasing traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials. Speak to the building surveyor for more detail.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a garage) and how does the surveyor work it out?

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost as an integral part of the report. To fully consider the market value the valuer will take into account area knowledge and other considerations relating to the property e.g. general condition Surveyors also reflect on style of architecture and use other assumptions e.g. there are no hazardous materials. Surveyors don't value certain things like sales incentives.

Additional local Bude area conjectures, for example services, are made as well as any significant Bude environmental problems like Bude planning proposals (e.g flight path), 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. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
