HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Cranfield and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Cranfield property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Cranfield property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits to opt for the full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report when looking into a extended cottage?

Structural Surveys are no longer offered by Surveyors and the new more technical survey which has been classified as the Building Survey is now available. Choose the Building Survey in the case of the house referred to. The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail if investigating a post fifties unmodified house built out of conventional building materials.

Bear in mind that a number survey no go areas exist with the survey as a Cranfield surveyor cannot open up the structure of the property or comment on non-permanent out buildings.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect does damp weather have on our new property? Will the Cranfield property surveyor report on this? Could damaged gutters lower the property value?

As a frequent surveyor of homes in the region, I find it strange that this issue is not given more thought by property buyers. If you have only seen the house on a clear day, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that downspouts are under performing include rusted iron elements. This can lead to rotten roof timbers.

Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive.However, the damage caused, where not maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

House Prices

Is £168, 998 in the right area price to pay for a flat close to MK43 in Cranfield for. What things does the Cranfield qualified RICS surveyor take into account during a Home Survey ?

There are a great number of factors that might affect property values e.g. the state of the roof or whether the garden is overlooked. As an indicator, one can try to weigh up prices against flat values recorded in Cranfield for comparable properties. The average flat price completed between July and October in 2012 was £143, 498, which is £25, 500 less than £168, 998 - the amount you buying for (£237, 962 was the blended house/flat average). 21, Gold Furlong, Marston Moretaine, Bedford, Central Bedfordshire, Central Bedfordshire, MK43 0EG a new build freehold Flat recently sold for £158, 995 .

The only way for you to get an accurate property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report by default. A qualified RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).
