HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Loddon and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Loddon property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Loddon property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact may wet conditions have on a property in Loddon? Can damaged rainwater goods decrease our property's value?

Both in Loddon, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately high levels of rainfall and the effect it can have on homes in Loddon are rarely considered properly by property buyers. If you have investigated the house you are buying on a sunny day, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that rainwater goods are blocked include spalling on walls around drainage. Blocked rainwater goods can result in water damage.

Fortunately, problems with drains are generally easy to resolve for a reasonable cost, unless they are left untreated. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our agent said that the had been a problem with dry rot, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Which issues relating to the attic will be investigated?

Property in Loddon in good condition can often hide roof maintenance problems, such as ponding. From wind braces to rafters, the whole roof will be considered. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like laying tar paper or felt, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A contractor in Loddon can provide an estimate.

House Prices

I intend to acquire a property in Loddon. What considerations will a Loddon qualified surveyor take into account when conducting a professional valuation ?

There are many factors that can impact on the price of property from location of nearby transport links to the size of bedrooms (single/double). .

The only way for home buyers to get an accurate house valued is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as part of the service.

A professional local surveyor will attend the property in addition to factoring in all other area issues that can impact on property prices.
