Do you need a Home Buyers Survey? Which survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in New Inn

    The RICS Homebuyer Report is the right choice if you are buying a home built from conventional materials i.e. tile & brick, in reasonable order and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in New Inn

    A Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in New Inn) will also be conducted by a RICS surveyor and is more detailed. Choose this when buying a non standard e.g. granite wall or older properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in New Inn

    This is an impartial valuation of the property. It is often chosen by mortgage free buyers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in New Inn and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the New Inn property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the property, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the New Inn property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Substandard guttering

For a HomeBuyer Report on a New Inn home what impact will a Condition Rating 1 have on 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

An example of this is poor quality or inefficient downspouts. They are visually inspected. Other related matters are found elsewhere in the HomeBuyer Report combined system problems.

A rating of 1 is the highest, meaning that this aspect of the residence being surveyed does not need urgent attention. Nevertheless, the surveyor may still recommend that regular upkeep is carried out. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give property buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give property buyers a clear understanding of how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in New Inn, and think we saw signs of pests in the kitchen. Should we get a RICS surveyor?

Any questions about pests affecting a New Inn property may not be asked by the lawyer. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Remedies to an infestation can include use of poison. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Conservation area

Are there any problems I need to look out for if purchasing an extended house in New Inn inside a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local council. New Inn surveyors must have local knowledge of relevant local area factors and any bearing may have on the property and its value. Property values tends to be more than prices outside the area because of them being unspoilt. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in poor condition for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

Property surveyors will note if the property could be so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the New Inn Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are carried out by your conveyancer. Out of keeping modifications to the building may also be advised but these are really more a concern for your lawyer.
