Which Property Survey is the right choice?

    Homebuyer Report in Hazlemere

    A Homebuyer Report should be chosen when purchasing a property built from conventional building materials such as tile and brick, in reasonable repair and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Hazlemere

    A RICS Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Hazlemere) will also be carried out by a MRICS/FRICS accredited surveyor but is more detailed. Opt for this survey for non standard , for example stone wall properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Hazlemere

    This is an independent valuation . It is chosen by mortgage free purchasers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Hazlemere and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Hazlemere property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the property, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Hazlemere property's condition along with information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a building survey consider signs of flood damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause flood damage, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the property in Hazlemere in question is in danger. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, recommend maintenance.An awareness of characteristics of the Hazlemere area likely to affect the property also enables the building surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The building surveyor may ask the seller

if the property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it advisable to consider rainwater goods, and does our house surveyor in Hazlemere mention it?

I find it odd that damp weather and the effect it can have on properties are not given more thought. If you have only seen the house you are buying in the Summer, defects may not have been obvious. This can lead to hazardous mould.

Fortunately, these defects are quite easy to remedy. If poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I should be wary of if planning to buy a building in Hazlemere in conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Hazlemere need to have knowledge of local factors and the bearing they have with the property. Prices will probably be higher because of them being in their original state. However a large number have been neglected and are in a poor state e.g. ugly satellite dishes

Property surveyors can be expected to advise you whether the building is or might be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Hazlemere Homebuyer Report will suggest additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted during the legal process. Unapproved extensions to the building should be noted but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.
