Which Property Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Cambridgeshire

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice if planning to purchase a home constructed from standard building materials i.e. tile and brick, not dilapidated and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Cambridgeshire

    A RICS Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Cambridgeshire) will also be carried out by a MRICS or FRICS surveyor but is more detailed. Opt for this when buying a non standard , for example stone wall houses.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Cambridgeshire

    This is an impartial valuation . It is usually chosen by cash purchasers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Cambridgeshire and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Cambridgeshire property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Cambridgeshire property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

I am planning to buy a detached house in Cambridgeshire, CB24. It is on the market for £300, 383. What considerations will a surveyor consider during a RICS survey ?

There is a vast array of things that might affect the price of property from national factors such as interest rates to whether the property is listed. As an indicator, one can try to set against house prices achieved in the area for similar properties.

The average house price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £292, 083, which is £8, 300 less than the amount the vendor is asking for ., 23, Thatchers Wood, Longstanton, Cambridge, South Cambridgeshire, Cambridgeshire, CB24 3BX a detached house sold for £161, 232 .

In order for you to get a professional property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as part of the service.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a building in Cambridgeshire , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What will our Cambridgeshire property surveyor investigate during the survey?

This often causes anxiety for purchasers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many residential properties can be hiding serious difficulties with the roof. From sheathing to parapet walls, many parts of the roof and loft should be reported on. Your property surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

High estimates for roofing jobs (such as a complete replacement) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable contractor in Cambridgeshire. Contact Flat & Valley Roofing of 13 Nettleditch, Littlebury, Saffron Walden, CB11 4TY on 01223 411688 for an estimate.
