Which Building Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Bozeat

    The Homebuyer Report is the best choice when planning to purchase a home constructed from conventional materials such as brick and tile, not dilapidated and built in the last 100 years.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Bozeat

    The Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Bozeat) will also be conducted by a MRICS/FRICS surveyor but is more exhaustive. Choose this when buying a non standard property such as wychert or older homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Bozeat

    This is an impartial valuation of the property. This is often chosen by cash buyers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Bozeat and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Bozeat property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Bozeat property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can we expect the House Survey to mention this, and what defects will be reported on?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable separation of the skirting board from the floor, to complete structural failure. Steps like after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. If you are particularly concerned about a crack

or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Bozeat home survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing permanent outbuildings)

A Homebuyer Report in Bozeat will include an impartial valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. In order to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building the valuer will take into account knowledge of Bozeat and other considerations about the property for instance: square metres The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and make certain other assumptions like the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building survey does not 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.

Additional local Bozeat area assumptions, like services, are made in addition to local environmental concerns like local Bozeat industrial considerations, also being considered.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a 16th Century converted stable in Bozeat. Will repairs costs be higher?

Some purchasers have considered buying a unique or characterful property. Vernacular architecture, however, can concern buyers. Houses built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Construction materials, such as matching stone or wood, , which could increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey.
