HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Yoxall and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Yoxall property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Yoxall property's general condition along with advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Yoxall Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an older farmhouse in Yoxall. Will the building's age be a problem?

Some buyers have looked at purchasing a old, characterful home one day. Vernacular architecture, however, can sometimes be an issue. Yoxall property employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be difficult to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Yoxall listed buildings. This may mean that it is all the more vital that you get a building survey prior to exchanging. If you have doubts, speak to the building surveyor for more detail.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Yoxall include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a retaining wall) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report will contain an impartial valuation and also a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as an integral part of the report. When calculating an accurate value estimate your independent surveyor should use area knowledge as well as other factors about the property for instance: number of bedrooms Surveyors also examine materials used and use other assumptions, for example there are no hazardous materials. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local Yoxall area conjectures, for example issues with access, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like Yoxall planning proposals (e.g flight path), which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will bugs affect the purchase price of a building in Yoxall - Do we need a house surveyor?

Scare stories about property pests are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as woodworm as minor annoyances. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Signs may not be obvious, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.
