HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Woburn Sands and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Woburn Sands property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Woburn Sands property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as professional fees e.g legal fees) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Woburn Sands property will contain a professional valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. To fully consider the correct valuation your independent surveyor should use awareness of the Woburn Sands property market and other considerations about the property e.g. square metres The valuer will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will use key assumptions, for example there are no damaging materials. Surveyors disregard things like sales incentives.

Additional local area conjectures like service connections, are made as well as any significant Woburn Sands environmental issues like intrusive noises or smells, which will also be factored in.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a Woburn Sands house but are worried about insects. Will a residential surveyor look into this?

Scare stories about property infestations are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as vermin as minor annoyances. Regrettably, infestations can be costly to fix and carry serious health risks. An affected property may not always be easy to identify. As an example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Remedies to insect infestation can include removal of infected furniture. If you believe vermin, or any pest, may be present, request that your surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Asbestos roof tiles

There may be a danger of asbestos boilers concealed in the home. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials such as asbestos packing in stud walls.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent fire retarding qualities and it may be found in central heating flues. Technically all forms are deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful not to move asbestos and expert advice should be sought immediately. Never attempt to disturb it yourself. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos during the survey. However they will mention suspected asbestos and should recommend professional testing.
