HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Swavesey and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Swavesey property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, you should you select a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Swavesey property's condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need London brick guidelines for upkeep, can you help? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick-constructed flats in Swavesey demonstrate several benefits, but they can also indicate various issues and defects, including crypto-florescence and vertical cracking. For example, thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs and may require immediate attention. C & C Builders may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01536 713475 or 23 Coronation Av, Rothwell, Kettering, NN14 6DG.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include ornate Della Robbia bond paving, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

House Prices

We have found a detached property in CB24 on with a local agent for £267, 197. What considerations will a Swavesey surveyor consider when valuing house prices in Swavesey ?

There is a vast array of things which could have a bearing on property values such as the amount of ground rent or the quality of the bathroom and fittings. It often helps to benchmark prices house prices recorded in the same area for similar houses.

The average house price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £240, 397, which is £26, 800 less than the price you are intending to pay. The average factoring in houses and flats was £234, 618. 7, Moat Way, Swavesey, Cambridge, South Cambridgeshire, Cambridgeshire, CB24 4TR a detached house sold for £78, 950 .

The only way to get an accurate and professional home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as a core component. A qualified RICS surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Swavesey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report includes an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost as a standard part of the survey. To ascertain the valuation your RICS valuer will take into account in depth understanding of the Swavesey market and other factors relating to the property e.g. accommodation The valuer will also consider construction methods and use other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been employed. Surveyors don't factor in certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local area conjectures, for example connection to sewers, are made in addition to Swavesey environmental concerns like local industry, which will also be factored in.

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