HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Lutterworth and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Lutterworth property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer comprehensive details of the Lutterworth property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

A resident warned us about pests in the area. What advice should we get?

Any questions about pests affecting a Lutterworth home may not be asked by the lawyer. This issue should be taken seriously. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Treatment for a serious infestation may include use of insecticides or destruction of tainted materials. If you believe mice, or any pest, may be present, request that your Lutterworth surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

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

A Homebuyer Report on a Lutterworth property will include a professional valuation and also a reinstatement cost estimate. To ascertain the valuation your RICS valuer will relate to area knowledge as well as other factors about the property for instance: state of repair.

Surveyors also evaluate materials used and use key 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. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area assumptions, like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to local environmental issues like Lutterworth planning proposals (e.g flight path), which will also be factored in.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the thirties house I am possibly going to lease I think we saw that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses; does a surveyor report on the electrics?

When conducting a Lutterworth Home Survey the home surveyor should usually make a note on the overall electrical system if it is apparent that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state of repair. This should include a general examination of any uncovered areas of the wiring in addition to things like ascertaining the category of electrical fittings in bathrooms or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Verifying the location of the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey in Lutterworth.
