HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Hereford and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Hereford property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give comprehensive details of the Hereford property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more details why not obtain a Hereford House Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about bugs. Do we need a house surveyor?

Houses are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Treatment for insect infestation may include removal or excision of affected timber. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

English Heritage

We are planning to purchase a home near Aconbury Camp , will this affect the property's value?

Aconbury Camp is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local interest often add to the desirability of an area. Other monuments of interest include Almeley Castle, Bredwardine Castle and Broomy Hill Pumping Station.. Your surveyor will include many local and regional criteria during the homebuyer report in Hereford. See the English Heritage website for more information on Aconbury Camp.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Hereford. Can a building survey look for flooding damage, or if neighbouring property have been affected?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Hereford residential property is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk. Both buyers and home owners in areas at a high risk of flooding are right to be worried. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. In addition, the HomeBuyer Report may outline a strategy for flood-related upkeep.The HomeBuyer Report will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Also included on Environment Agency's flood alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.
