HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Tamworth and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Tamworth property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Tamworth property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get a Tamworth Homebuyers Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent said that amateur repairs had been a concern. What should we do about roof repairs?

This often causes anxiety for property purchasers who know how costly roofing work can be. Houses across Tamworth can often hide roofing woes, like bowing beams. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from parapet walls to sheeting. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Tamworth, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors in Tamworth will look for a range of signs, including holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like thatching, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible. Speak to Tamworth Roofing Services of 11 Aldergate, Tamworth, B79 7DL on 07973 734418 to request an estimate.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Tamworth. Can a HomeBuyer Report check for flooding?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Tamworth Tamworth home is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and the value of a Tamworth home in an at-risk area may be impacted. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. Flood water can enter a property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

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 danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a boundary wall) and how does the surveyor work it out?

A Homebuyer Report will contain an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost included in the cost of the survey. To work out an accurate estimate of the value of the building your independent surveyor will take into account awareness of the Tamworth property market and other factors about the property e.g. number of bedrooms Surveyors also examine certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon key assumptions e.g. there being no serious defects.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. It will also be assumed that there aren't any compromising legal issues for example there being no outstanding claims. Such concerns will be clarified by your solicitor during the legal process.

Further Tamworth conjectures, such as any cost of repairs being shared amongst tenants or connection to sewers, are made in addition to any environmental issues like brine mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
