HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Flitwick and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Flitwick property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Flitwick property's condition along with an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Flitwick properties at risk, and does a RICS surveyor check flooding, or whether flooding has affected the garden?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Flitwick home in Flitwick is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and the value of a home in Flitwick in an at-risk area may be impacted.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure.

Flood water can enter a house through several routes, including landscaping or paved areas sloping towards the property. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The building surveyor may ask the occupier if the house has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Flitwick include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as professional fees e.g legal fees) and how does the surveyor work it out?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as part of the survey. When calculating the correct valuation your RICS valuer will pair area knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location. The RICS surveyor will also consider style of architecture and make certain key assumptions like no contamination in or from ground.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there are no major legal issues like consents for works having been granted. Advice should be sought from your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Further area conjectures, for example problematic roads and access, are made in addition to any local environmental concerns like nearby pubs, which will also be factored in.

House Prices

Is £279, 772 a good amount to be buying a detached property in MK45 for and what will the Flitwick chartered surveyor consider when conducting a home buyers survey ?

There is a vast array of things that can affect property values such as the likelihood of getting planning permission to extend or the size of the garden. It often helps to benchmark selling prices achieved in the nearby area for similar properties.

The average house price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £264, 272, which is £15, 500 less than the amount you are paying. The combined house/flat average was £259, 328. 7, Mendip Close, Flitwick, Bedford, Central Bedfordshire, Central Bedfordshire, MK45 1TT a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £270, 000 .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get an accurate and professional home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as standard. Your RICS chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

The local surveyor will always attend the building in addition to factoring in any other variables that can affect house prices.
