HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Buckden and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Buckden property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Buckden property's general condition as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I need to be conscious of if purchasing a property in Buckden near a conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are many thousands official conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local authorities.

A Building Surveyors must have knowledge of relevant local area issues and any relation may have on the building. Property Prices are typically higher due to the areas being largely unspoilt

Surveyors can be expected to advise if the home is or might be so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Buckden Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are raised by your legal adviser. Out of keeping extensions to the building will also be reported, however these should be investigated by your legal representative. Jeffrey Mills are a local firm situated at The Green, Huntingdonshire, Cambridgeshire, PE28 5ST and may be happy to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01487 832404

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact may wet weather have on a property, and does our RICS surveyor mention it? Could damaged drainage lower the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, this issue is not given more thought by buyers. If you have only seen the residence in good weather, defects may not have been obvious.

Fortunately, problems with drains are quite easy to remedy, if not neglected. However, if the drains are not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be bugs at the property in Buckden we're buying, but we are not certain. Should we get a chartered surveyor?

Homes are not usually impacted by serious cases of pests, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. An affected building may not always be easy to identify. As an example, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. The chartered surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP. If you require more information, contact a local firm, like Anglia Pest Services, Bryherstone House, East Street, Colne, Cambridgeshire, PE28 3LZ, or call them on 0148 784 3200.
