HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Goodrich and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Goodrich property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Goodrich property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

I would like to acquire a property in Goodrich. What things does a Goodrich surveyor allow for when conducting a RICS survey ?

There are a huge number of issues which could positively or negatively affect the price of property ranging from location of nearby transport links to whether there are any conservation area infringements. .

In order to get a formal home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as an inclusive part.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the home in Goodrich we're buying, but we are not certain. Will a surveyor look into this?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This matter should be taken seriously. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Treatment for vermin may include use of insecticides.

The Goodrich surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP. Contact a specialist, e.g. Positive Environmental Ltd, The Perrys, Westmoor, Hereford, HR4 7HN, or call 0198 159 0534, to discuss remedial options.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick walls on this property in Goodrich appears to have several cracks. What are the possible consequences?

Brick conversions in Goodrich will suffer from distinct issues. A problem regularly identified is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Barnard K, 14 Freda Corbett Cl, London, SE15 6UN on 020 7635 8805 for a quote for repair work.

A range of courses arrangements and colours of brick building may be found throughout England and Wales. E.g. common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.
