HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Connahs Quay and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Connahs Quay property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Connahs Quay property's condition as well as including advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I would be advised to be conscious of if buying a home in Connahs Quay in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local councils. Your surveyor are required by RICS to possess knowledge of relevant local area issues and any bearing they have on the home. Prices is generally inflated because of conservation areas being largely unspoilt However many are falling into a poor state for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Property surveyors can be expected to inform you if the property could be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Connahs Quay Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unsympathetic changes to the building may also be advised in your survey, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Connahs Quay include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how does the surveyor work it out?

The Homebuyer Report contains a professional valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate as part of the report. To be able to determine the valuation your independent surveyor will combine in depth understanding of the Connahs Quay market and other considerations relating to the property for instance: square metres.

Surveyors also evaluate construction type and make certain other assumptions e.g. it is connected to mains services. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. RICS valuations assume that there is an absence of any serious legal problems e.g. there being no outstanding claims. Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local Connahs Quay area assumptions, such as any cost of repairs being shared amongst tenants or service connections, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like flightpaths, which will also be factored in.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a home in Connahs Quay but are worried about pests. Will the Property Survey investigate this?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Connahs Quay building may not be raised during the conveyancing. This matter should be taken seriously. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include use of insecticides or removal of infected furniture.
