Looking for a Property Survey ? Which survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Grange Park

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice if you are buying a home built from conventional building materials i.e. brick & tile, in reasonable repair and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Grange Park

    A RICS Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Grange Park) is also conducted by a MRICS/FRICS accredited surveyor and is more detailed. Choose this option for non standard property such as timber wall or older homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Grange Park

    This is an independent valuation of the property. This is often chosen by mortgage free purchasers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Grange Park and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Grange Park property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will give a thorough analysis of the Grange Park property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about bugs in the building in Grange Park we plan to buy. Is a Home Buyers Survey advisable?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This issue should be taken seriously. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. As some pest problems can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Deteriorated timber

On a Grange Park HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E8' cover?

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for property purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a Grange Park home. Red, amber and green ratings give property purchasers indicate how concerning each aspect of the report is. This section includes visual aspects of the roof, checked with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Ornamental joinery such as finials or mock Tudor panelling will be covered. Moisture penetration in stucco, for example, is included in Section E.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls we would need to be wary of if purchasing a converted house in Grange Park inside a conservation area?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local councils. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have knowledge of relevant local issues and any connection they have with the home and its value. Property Prices will probably be greater as a result of them retaining their original character. However a growing number are falling into disrepair e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors are trained to inform you if the property is possibly within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are raised by your conveyancer. Unsympathetic extensions to the property may be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by your conveyancer.
