HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Fairfield and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Fairfield property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the Fairfield property, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give comprehensive details of the Fairfield property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any problems I need to verify when intending to buy a home in Fairfield in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas in the UK which are overseen by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Fairfield are required by RICS to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local factors and any connection may have on the property and its value. House prices is, more often than not, significantly higher because of them being preserved. However many have fallen into a state of neglect e.g. the removal front garden walls

RICS surveyors are trained to inform you if the planned purchase looks to be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are carried out by your legal representation. Unsympathetic modifications to the property may be advised in your survey, however these should be investigated by the solicitor.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about an infestation. What should we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This matter should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies to vermin can include professional cleaning. Your RICS surveyor may report on signs of infestation.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report includes a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and will also include a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the report. To ascertain the valuation your RICS valuer will relate to in depth understanding of the Fairfield market and other factors about the property for instance: desirability of the location.. The RICS surveyor will also consider materials used and draw upon other assumptions e.g. no damaging building techniques have been used. Surveyors ignore things like furnishings, for example curtains. It will also be assumed that there is an absence of any significant legal issues e.g. no laws are broken by use of property. Such concerns will be clarified by your legal representative.

Further Fairfield assumptions, like the property being insurable, are made in addition to any local environmental concerns like pig farms, also being considered.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
