HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Laindon and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Laindon property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Laindon property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report includes a property valuation in addition to a rebuilding cost. When calculating the value of the property your independent surveyor will use local Laindon market factors and other factors relating to the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also evaluate construction type and will make certain key assumptions such as there are no dangerous materials.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area assumptions, like problematic roads and access, are made in addition to any Laindon environmental issues like mining activity, which will also be factored in.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Does a HomeBuyer Report discuss soil composition the report?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a property can be significant. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a property. For example, widening cracks may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like keeping standing water on the property in check. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My husband spotted signs of bugs in the hallway. Will the HomeBuyer Report investigate this?

Laindon property are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. This issue should be taken seriously. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.
