HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Wokingham and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Wokingham property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension on the property, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Wokingham property's state of repair along with advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should I upgrade to full structural survey before buying an abandoned fifties cottage in Wokingham?

Full Structural Surveys have a new name and are now entitled Building Surveys. Select a Building Survey in relation to the house described. The HomeBuyer Report is enough if investigating a non period Wokingham house made out of typical construction materials. You should be aware of certain limitations exist with a Building Survey because a qualified surveyor wont be able to open up the structure of the building for example, or comment on the regulatory compliance of heating systems.

House Prices

I want to acquire a property in RG40, being marketed for £396, 998. What things will a Wokingham RICS chartered surveyor take into account during a RICS valuation ?

Any number of issues which could affect the price of property ranging from the legality of extensions to the architectural style of the property. One method is to analyse values achieved in the area for comparable properties.

This means house prices recorded in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £368, 498, which is £28, 500 less than the price you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £337, 497. Acorn Lodge, Squirrel Walk, Wokingham, Wokingham, Wokingham, RG41 3AS a detached house sold for £455, 000 .

The most reliable way for you to get an accurate and professional property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to take notice of when purchasing an older property? What should be budgeted for maintenance?

Many purchasers plan to buy property with real personality. For houses in Wokingham built before the 20th Century, age, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Wokingham property constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be difficult to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of property in a conservation area. This may end up costing more than initially budgeted. Mention this to your surveyor for further advice.
