HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Kempston and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Kempston property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Kempston property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any reasons for getting a the full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report when considering a defective house?

Full Structural Surveys are no longer available as a newer named the Building Survey, is now available. It is now the correct RICS survey if buying an altered property like a period house. A Building Survey outlines comprehensive and significant insight in relation to the homes construction along with any maintenance needs, shortly after a thorough inspection of the accessible areas.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact may damp weather have on our new Kempston building? Where there is a problem, what should we do?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However this issue is rarely paid due attention by house purchasers. For instance, spalling on walls around drainage may indicate that the gutters are at risk. Poor drainage can lead to fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive.However, the damage caused, where not cared for, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Kempston home survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains an independent valuation in addition to a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. To fully consider the value of the property your RICS valuer will combine awareness of the Kempston property market and other considerations relating to the property for instance: size The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and make certain other assumptions such as no significant problems. Surveyors disregard certain things like sales incentives. RICS valuations assume that there is an absence of any costly legal problems e.g. the tenure being as indicated (e.g freehold). Advice should be sought from your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Additional local Kempston area conjectures, for example the property being insurable, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like local mining issues, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
