HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Childs Hill and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Childs Hill property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Childs Hill property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a building. Will the HomeBuyer Report investigate this?

Purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value. Signs may not be obvious. For example, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Remedies to pests can include chemical treatment or removal or excision of affected timber. Your home surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.
