HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Wombourne property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Wombourne property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be insects at the house we're buying, but we are not certain - What should we do?

Purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for the vendor to mention a pest issue. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected property may not always be easy to identify.

For example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Treatment for insect infestation may include removal or excision of affected timber.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

Wombourne Homebuyer Reports a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost. To work out the property's value your chartered surveyor will use local Wombourne market factors and other factors relating to the property for instance: size Your Wombourne surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will make certain key assumptions like no damaging building techniques have been employed. Surveyors will disregard things like furnishings.

Additional local Wombourne area assumptions like issues with access, are made in addition to any local environmental concerns like local industry, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there is a danger of dusty asbestos wallpaper concealed in the home. Which types of asbestos are a concern and can it be removed?

Asbestos is a dangerous substance formed from metamorphic rocks. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials for example cement.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good sound absorption properties, it may be found in ceilings. Technically all forms are deadly and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to break asbestos and professional advice should be sought urgently. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos during the survey. Surveyors will mention the risk of asbestos and will offer advice.
