HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Nunthorpe and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Nunthorpe property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Nunthorpe property's condition as well as advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We believe this property is located on a flood plain. Is there a major flood risk? Would our HomeBuyer Report consider any flood damage, or whether flooding has affected other houses on the street?

A wide variety of factors can cause flood damage, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity; sensible owners and purchasers in Nunthorpe are right to consider precautions. The Environment Agency maintain a flood warning service, with regular updated risk assessments, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a property lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a garage) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Nunthorpe property will contain a surveyor valuation and a cost of reinstatement. To estimate an accurate estimate of the value of the building the surveyor will factor in knowledge of Nunthorpe and other considerations about the property e.g. style of architecture. The valuer will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will draw upon other assumptions such as the ground is not land filled. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings.

Further area conjectures, like the property being insurable, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like busy roads, which will also be factored in.

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.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the house in Nunthorpe we're buying, but we are not certain. Do we need a chartered surveyor?

Homes in Nunthorpe are not usually impacted by serious cases of pests, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. Regrettably, pests can seriously reduce the value of a property and put your health in danger. Signs may not be obvious. For example, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Treatment for a serious infestation may include chemical treatment and destruction of tainted materials.
