HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Wollaston and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Wollaston property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Wollaston property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a property surveyor consider flood damage, or whether flooding has affected other houses on the street?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: www.metoffice.gov.uk), and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. Flood water can enter a Wollaston property through several routes, including badly fitted air bricks.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. the use of lime-based plaster on walls. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Building Survey if the building surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the Wollaston property is at risk.

House Prices

There is a vast array of things that might affect the price of property ranging from noise from flight paths to whether the property is overlooked. .

In order for home buyers to get a formal property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation by default. A surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to take notice of when purchasing older property? Will the property's age be a problem?

Some purchasers have considered buying a unique or characterful property. Use of traditional methods, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Wollaston property built using traditional methods can be expensive to repair. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. Mention this to your property surveyor for further advice.
