HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Fairford and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Fairford property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Fairford property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice get a Fairford Home Survey Quote on our site or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Fairford property will include a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate as part of the report. To ascertain an accurate value estimate your RICS valuer will call upon area knowledge and other factors relating to the property e.g. accommodation Surveyors also reflect on construction type and draw upon key assumptions, for example no significant problems.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local Fairford area assumptions, like connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant Fairford environmental problems like local mining issues, which will also be factored in.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact should wet weather have on our new Fairford house, and does our building survey mention it? If there is necessary work, will they be troublesome to fix?

Regular rainfall is common in Fairford and across the country, but the effect which rainfall has on buildings in Fairford is not given the attention it deserves. Signs that drainage systems are under performing include a waterlogged garden. If you are concerned, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

The good news is that these defects are usually easy to remedy. However, if the drains are not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
