HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Needham Market and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Needham Market property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Needham Market property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the local surveyor give details on the condition or the safety of the gas mains supply?

A surveyor will visually inspect the accessible parts of the system. This will include gas heaters at the home, in addition to gas affiliated fittings, for instance chimney linings. Your Needham Market chartered surveyor will not remove fittings nor will they carry out any tests of any kind on the gas system. Most people are aware that gas can be deadly and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a 17th Century renovated farmhouse. What impact will the building's thatched roof have on repairs?

For traditionally-built Needham Market property, age can create issues for homeowners, and Structures built with traditional methods can be a drain to repair. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Especially for listed buildings, Construction materials, such as matching stone or wood, may be required. This may mean expensive ongoing repairs.

In order to determine an accurate value estimate your chartered surveyor will pair awareness of the Needham Market property market and other things about the property for instance: number of bedrooms The surveyor will also consider construction type and make certain other assumptions e.g. there being no significant defects.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local Needham Market area conjectures, such as stairway access to a flat or problematic roads and access, are made in addition to local environmental issues like nearby railway tracks, also being considered.
