HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Gamlingay property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Gamlingay property's state of repair as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about pests. Will a surveyor look into this?

Any questions about pests affecting a Gamlingay building may not be asked by the lawyer. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Signs may not be obvious, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Remedies to pest problems can include traps.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Gamlingay include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a boundary wall) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report in Gamlingay will include an independent valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as part of the report. To properly appraise the property's value your independent surveyor should use local property market knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms. Surveyors also reflect on construction type and draw upon key assumptions such as the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building survey won't 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. RICS valuations assume that there are no expensive legal problems e.g. proper access over pathways. Advice should be sought from your conveyancer.

Further area conjectures, such as there being no disputes between occupiers or services, are made in addition to environmental issues like local Gamlingay industrial considerations, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a house and the seller has confirmed that it has been built with stone. What factors must we watch out for, and what will the survey reveal?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of Gamlingay homes. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like deteriorating bedding will vary with the particular type of stone. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. This may also require careful attention. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.
