HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Wincanton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Wincanton property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Wincanton property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do I need to look into downspouts? Could damaged downspouts lower the property value?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the effect which wet weather has on Wincanton property is not given the attention it deserves by house purchasers. Signs that downspouts are damaged include rotten roofing elements.

In most cases, drainage problems are generally easy to repair, if identified early. If not cleared out regularly, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a property valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost as standard. To estimate an accurate estimate of the value of the building your independent surveyor will call upon in depth understanding of the Wincanton market and other considerations relating to the property for instance: general condition.

Surveyors also evaluate certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon other assumptions, for example there are no damaging materials. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area assumptions, like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to local environmental problems like intrusive noises or smells, which will also be factored in.

Deteriorated timber

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Wincanton, what are common defects Condition rating 3 impacting joinery and finishes?

Severe defects impacting the Wincanton house or flat are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the home's construction. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Wincanton house or flat being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. The structured format for the HomeBuyer Report is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any buyers. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property. A fairly common example may be metal sidings which are not earthed correctly. Section E8 covers more decorative aspects of the property's exterior, inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Fascias, soffits and eaves are reported on.
