HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Wingate and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

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

If the Wingate property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension on the Wingate property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Wingate property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a Wingate house but are worried about pests - Is a Building Survey advisable?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Wingate building may not be raised during the conveyancing.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can impact a home's worth. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence

of bed bugs. 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.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an old farmstead. What effect will the structure's timber frame have on upkeep?

Some purchasers hope to own a old, characterful home one day. The age of a structure, however, can concern buyers. Wingate property featuring traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work, which could mean expensive ongoing repairs.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Wingate surveyor search for signs of water damage, or whether flooding has affected the garden?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Wingate residence is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk; sensible owners and home purchasers in Wingate are right to consider precautions. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. An awareness of characteristics of the Wingate area likely to affect the property also enables the property surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.
