HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Sneyd Green and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Sneyd Green property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Sneyd Green property's condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about an infestation - What should we do?

Pests like carpet beetle larvae may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Sneyd Green. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Signs may not be obvious, for example, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies.

Treatment for insect infestation may include traps and removal of infected furniture. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need brick wall maintenance advice, can a surveyor in Sneyd Green help? Are brick walls hard to repair?

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Sneyd Green Surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how does the surveyor work it out?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a professional valuation and a reinstatement cost. To estimate an accurate estimate of the value of the building your chartered surveyor will use experience of property in Sneyd Green as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: style of architecture The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and will make certain other assumptions e.g. there being no serious defects.

A Building Survey won't 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.
