HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Fetcham and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Fetcham property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Fetcham property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Fetcham include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall)

A Homebuyer Report on a Fetcham property will contain a valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. To properly appraise the correct valuation the surveyor will take into account local Fetcham market factors and other considerations relating to the property for instance: square metres The valuer will also consider materials used and draw upon other assumptions e.g. no significant problems. Surveyors will ignore certain things like sales incentives. The surveyor also assumes that there aren't any compromising legal

issues e.g. the tenure being as indicated (e.g commonhold). Advice should be sought from your legal representative.

Additional local area assumptions, such as stairway access to a maisonette or the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any environmental issues like local mining issues, also being considered.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Traditionally built property

We are buying an older farmhouse in Fetcham. Will the property's age be a problem?

A property's age can sometimes be an issue, and Fetcham structures featuring traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could mean long-term upkeep.Contact your surveyor for further advice.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about an infestation in the Fetcham building we plan to buy. Is a Building Survey advisable?

Fetcham purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to report on an infestation. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Treatment for pests may include destruction of tainted materials.
