HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Toddington and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Toddington property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Toddington property's state of repair as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any things we would be advised to verify if purchasing a flat in Toddington in conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by local councils. Your surveyor need to have relevant knowledge of local area issues and the relation may have on the building and its value. The value of homes will be higher than non conservation area equivalents because of conservation areas retaining their original character.

Surveyors will note whether the location is possibly so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Toddington Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are carried out by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unauthorised modifications to the property should be reported in the Toddington survey but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Toddington, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Will access to the loft be difficult to arrange?

This is often asked by Toddington buyers who know that homes can often hide issues with the roof like. Every element should be checked, e.g. dormers, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like asbestos cement removal, 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. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report includes an independent valuation and a "reinstatement cost" included in the cost of the survey. To ascertain the valuation the valuer will call upon local property market knowledge and other considerations relating to the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also reflect on style of architecture and use other assumptions such as no significant problems.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. RICS valuations assume that there aren't any compromising legal problems for example Rights of access and egress over all communal areas. Advice should be sought from your legal representative.

Additional local Toddington area conjectures, like problematic roads and access, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like local mining issues, also being considered.
