HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Todwick and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Todwick property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Todwick property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report includes a valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate. When calculating the correct valuation your independent surveyor will use local Todwick market factors and other factors relating to the property e.g. state of repair The valuer will also consider construction type and will draw upon key assumptions such as no damaging building techniques have been employed. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any major legal

issues for example Rights of access and egress over all communal areas. These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area conjectures, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made as well as any significant Todwick environmental issues like local industry, also being considered.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a property but are worried about pests. What should we do?

Homes are not usually impacted by serious cases of infestations, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Treatment for pests may include removal of infected furniture. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Todwick. Can a chartered surveyor check any water damage?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Todwick Todwick house is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. It is strongly recommended that a home is protected, before any water damage happens.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a house in Todwick, such as via window frames. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Also included on Environment Agency's flood risk alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

According to the Environment Agency, no recent flood warnings were found for Todwick.
