HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Waddon and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Waddon property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Waddon property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

A next-door neighbour warned us about vermin affecting properties nearby. Should we get a surveyor?

Properties are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Waddon include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as professional fees) and how is it calculated?

Homebuyer Reports include an independent valuation in addition to a Reinstatement Cost as part of the report.
