HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Acle and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Acle property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations on the property, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Acle property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rainfall an issue in Acle? If there is damage, will they be inconvenient to fix?

I find it odd that the effect which wet weather has on homes in Acle is often overlooked. One indication that drainage are blocked is rotten roofing elements, and may lead to rising damp. In most cases, drainage problems are generally easy to repair fairly cheaply. If disregarded, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a 16th Century cottage in Acle. Will the house's age be an issue?

Some buyers in Acle have looked at purchasing a old, characterful home one day. For traditionally-built Acle property, age, however, can concern buyers. Acle property built with traditional methods can be costly to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of Acle's conservation areas. This may result in higher ongoing expenses.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Acle home survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing a boundary wall) and what does it include?

Acle Homebuyer Reports an independent valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. To fully consider the market value the valuer will pair knowledge of Acle as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: general condition The valuer will also consider materials used and will use key assumptions such as there are no hazardous materials. Surveyors ignore things like furnishings.

Further area assumptions, such as there being no disputes between occupiers or water and drainage connectivity, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like Acle planning proposals (e.g flight path), which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
