HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Wigton property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Wigton property's general condition in addition to information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the home we plan to buy. Do we need a property surveyor?

Houses are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Treatment for insect infestation may include removal or excision of affected timber. If you strongly suspect an issue with termites, or any pest, speak to your RICS surveyor

Building Surveys on flats 1

Do I need to get a full structural survey prior to buying a dilapidated regency first floor flat in Wigton?

The Full Structural Survey is now called the Building Survey. If you are buying a modified Wigton home e.g. an unloved flat, it is now the best home survey. Shortly after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the flat, the chartered surveyors report will be posted and emailed to the prospective buyer setting out any serious insight on the condition of the home. There are a few limitations with a property survey to be aware of as a RICS surveyor is not able to force or open up the fabric of the Wigton flat e.g. removing secured hatches. Furthermore flat conversions mean access to the building can be prevented and as a result the surveyor is only authorised go into detail on the flat itself, though the surveyor may also outline information about shared areas such as lifts.
