HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Gotham and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Gotham property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Gotham property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Does a Building survey in Gotham include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees e.g legal fees) and what does it include?

Homebuyer Reports include a valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To work out an accurate value estimate the valuer will pair experience of property in Gotham and other factors about the property for instance: general condition Your Gotham surveyor will also consider materials used and will draw upon key assumptions like there are no damaging materials. Surveyors don't factor in certain things like furnishings.

Additional local area assumptions like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to Gotham environmental problems like intrusive noises or smells, also being considered.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the home we plan to buy. What should we do?

Homes are generally free of vermin, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. When purchasing a building, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, 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 bug or other pest issues can include use of poison or removal of infected furniture.
