HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Winton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Winton property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give comprehensive details of the Winton property's condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Winton Homebuyers Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Winton, and think we saw signs of pests in the toilet - Should we get a surveyor?

Pests like moths may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Winton. This issue should be taken seriously. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Treatment for pests may include removal of infected furniture. If you require more information, contact a local firm, like Rentokil Initial UK Ltd (Dorset), 92-94 Castle Lane West, Bournemouth, Dorset, BH9 3JU, or call them on 0800 917 1987.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a retaining wall) and what will it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Winton building will include a property valuation and a "reinstatement cost" as a standard part of the survey. To fully consider the market value the surveyor will combine in depth understanding of the Winton market as well as other factors about the property for instance: size Surveyors also examine materials used and make certain other assumptions, for example there being no significant defects. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Further Winton assumptions, for example the property being insurable, are made in addition to Winton environmental problems like nearby railway tracks, 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 nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a home near to a refuse tip

Surveys in Winton will notice structural issues linked to the landfill. Your legal representative will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological database in addition to Bournemouth Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
