HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Littleborough and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Littleborough property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Littleborough property's general condition along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Littleborough Littleborough surveyor look for signs of flooding, or whether flooding has affected the garden?

It is estimated that over two million homes are at a high risk of flooding damage, and home purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. Flood water can enter a property in Littleborough through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. An awareness of characteristics of the Littleborough area likely to affect the property in Littleborough also enables the residential surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The residential surveyor will usually recommend that the home purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a garage) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a surveyor valuation as well as a "reinstatement cost" included in the cost of the survey. To estimate the property's value the valuer will take into account local property market knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: square metres. Surveyors also examine certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain other assumptions such as there are no hazardous 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. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any major legal issues like your potential purchase is sold with vacant possession. These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Further area assumptions, like services, are made as well as any significant Littleborough environmental concerns like Littleborough planning proposals (e.g flight path), which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Conservation area

Are there any issues I would be advised to be aware of when buying a house in Littleborough inside a conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Littleborough must possess knowledge of local area issues and any relation they have on the home. Property values is generally inflated as a result of the areas being preserved.

Property surveyors are trained to inform you if the planned purchase could be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are carried out by your legal adviser. Unapproved modifications to the property may be commented on, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.
