HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Newmarket and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Newmarket property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Newmarket property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The seller warned us that access to the loft could be difficult to arrange. What aspects of the loft will be checked?

Newmarket properties that are otherwise ideal can be blighted by issues with the roof like. From trusses to parapet walls, all aspects of the roof will be taken into account. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

Repairs need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable roofing specialist.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect may rain have on a Newmarket property, and does our surveyor mention it? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the impact damp weather can have on homes is often overlooked.

Signs that drainage systems are blocked include spalling masonry. Blocked rainwater goods can result in staining of wallpaper and damp.

In most cases, drainage problems are usually easy to fix.However, the damage caused, where not cleared out regularly, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Newmarket surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report will contain an impartial valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as standard. In order to determine an accurate value estimate the surveyor will pair local Newmarket market factors and other considerations relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms The valuer will also consider construction methods and make certain other assumptions such as there being no major problems.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area conjectures, like connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant Newmarket environmental concerns like the area being prone to flooding, also being considered.
