HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Crowthorne and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Crowthorne property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension on the Crowthorne property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Crowthorne property's general condition as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should I upgrade to full structural survey before investing in a shabby Victorian cottage in Crowthorne?

Full Structural Surveys are now called Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice if buying a mid century or later unmodified Crowthorne house built out of normal construction materials and methods. The Building Survey is the correct survey to choose for the house described. Usually within 2 to 3 days after an exhaustive survey of the inside and outside of the house, the RICS surveyors report will be posted and emailed to you running through comprehensive and critical advice in relation to the construction of the house.

There will be a few limitations with any residential survey insofar as a local surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the Crowthorne property e.g. removing roof space contents.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Crowthorne surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a garage) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report in Crowthorne will include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and will also include a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. To work out the value of the property the surveyor will use experience of property in Crowthorne and other considerations about the property for instance: desirability of the location. Surveyors also evaluate construction type and will draw upon other assumptions such as there are no hazardous materials.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area conjectures, for example services, are made in addition to environmental problems like Crowthorne planning proposals (e.g flight path), which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a building proximate to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. industrial refuse disposal. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns might include tars and other hazardous materials. Potential health concerns such as abdominal wall problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveys in Crowthorne will find structural issues linked to the site. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database and Wokingham Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
