HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Crawcrook and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Crawcrook property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations on the Crawcrook property, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Crawcrook property's condition and it includes information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I'm unsure about the reason in spending a bit more on a full structural survey when investing in a modified terraced house in Crawcrook instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Often, and incorrectly, called the Full Structural Survey by many home buyers, this survey is now defunct and and has been given a new moniker by RICS and the proper name is actually now the Building Survey. It is now the right home survey when purchasing a modified home e.g. a property in poor condition house. It should outline comprehensive and often critical advice on the Houses state of repair along with any defects after a thorough visual inspection of the accessible areas. .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Crawcrook, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the living room. What advice should we get?

Scare stories about home pest problems are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as woodworm as minor annoyances. When purchasing a home, this matter should be borne in mind. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take.RICS guidelines on the issue of pest problems are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your Crawcrook surveyor.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Crawcrook home survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and also a reinstatement cost. To estimate an accurate estimate of the value of the building the surveyor will combine local Crawcrook market factors and other considerations about the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also examine construction methods and make certain other assumptions like there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected. Surveyors will ignore certain things like sales incentives. The surveyor also assumes that there aren't any problematic legal problems e.g. planning permissions being in order. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area conjectures, such as use of communal facilities or water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any Crawcrook environmental issues like the property being underneath a flight path, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey won't 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.
