HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Bicester and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Bicester property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Bicester property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should I consider rainwater goods? Where there is damage, what should we do?

Both in Bicester, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the effect which rainfall has on homes in Bicester is ignored by buyers. For instance, spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts indicate that the drainage are under performing. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy, if not neglected. Where this is not cleared out regularly, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Conservatory

In a Bicester HomeBuyer Report, what are common a green light rating defects for conservatory and porches?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give house buyers in Bicester a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of how concerning each aspect of the report is. Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1, but maintenance may still be necessary. In Bicester, an example may be steps or landing areas which are settling or heaving. E7 elements are visually inspected. Any signs of inappropriate use, such as using a conservatory as a bedroom or kitchen will also be mentioned in the report.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Bicester HomeBuyer Report investigate flood damage?

The lives of many residents in Bicester and across the UK have been disrupted by water damage caused by flooding, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for homes in flood-risk areas. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. The chartered surveyor may ask the vendor or agent if the Bicester house has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
