HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Holly Village and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Holly Village property is a flat or maisonette, 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 go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Holly Village property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect could wet conditions have on our new Holly Village house? Could damaged drainage lower the property value?

Both in Holly Village, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact wet conditions can have on Holly Village houses is not given the attention it deserves by purchasers. If you have only visited the new home on a sunny day, problems are unlikely to be visible.

Signs that drainage systems are at risk include mildew in the attic.

In most cases, these defects are generally easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. If left untreated, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing a boundary wall) and what will it include?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a valuation and also a reinstatement cost as an integral part of the report. To fully consider the market value your RICS valuer will use in depth understanding of the Holly Village market and other considerations relating to the property for instance: general condition The valuer will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain key assumptions such as there being no major problems.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there aren't any significant legal problems for example Rights of access and egress over all communal areas. Such concerns will be clarified by your legal representative.

Additional local Holly Village area conjectures, for example problematic roads and access, are made in addition to any Holly Village environmental issues like the area being prone to flooding, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A resident warned us about vermin on the road. Do we need a surveyor?

Houses are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected home may not always be easy to identify. As an example, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Remedies to pest problems can include use of insecticides and destruction of tainted materials. The chartered 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.
