HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Watchet and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Watchet property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Watchet property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Watchet, and think we saw signs of bugs in the loft - Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Watchet home may not be raised during the conveyancing. When purchasing a home, this matter should be borne in mind.

Treatment for pests may include chemical treatment or removal of infected furniture. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
