HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Sandy and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Sandy property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give comprehensive details of the Sandy property's condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

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

Homes in Sandy are generally free of infestations, 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. As an example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Remedies to vermin can include insecticides and removal of infected furniture. If you believe moths, or any pest, may be present, request that your surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The next-door neighbour said that a leak had been a concern - What does a chartered surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors in Sandy. Homes throughout Sandy could feature roofing problems, such as. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the dormers to the wind braces. Your surveyors in Sandy may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Expensive quotes for roofing jobs (such as felting a flat roof) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A Sandy roofing contractor can provide an estimate. Call Bridge Roofing Specialists of Brook Farm, Begwary, Bedford, MK44 2NX on 0800-587 7114 for an estimate.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Sandy Surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing a boundary wall) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains an independent valuation in addition to a cost of reinstatement. When calculating the value of the property your chartered surveyor will take into account awareness of the Sandy property market and other factors about the property for instance: square metres The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and will make certain other assumptions, for example the property is connected to mains services such as gas.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any impossible to rectify legal problems e.g. the tenure being as indicated (e.g share of freehold). Advice should be sought from your solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions, for example connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant Sandy environmental concerns like railways, which will also be factored in.
