HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Wooburn Green and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Wooburn Green property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Wooburn Green property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Wooburn Green surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it worked out

Homebuyer Reports include a valuation and a Reinstatement Cost included in the cost of the survey. When calculating the correct valuation the surveyor will should use knowledge of Wooburn Green and other things about the property for instance: general condition. Surveyors also examine construction type and will draw upon other assumptions e.g. it is connected to mains services.

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. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there is an absence of any impossible to rectify legal issues for example the tenure being as indicated (e.g share of freehold). Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancing solicitor.

Further area conjectures, for example the access roads not being in private control, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like flightpaths, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Stone block wall damage

Can Clipsham stone-built houses in Wooburn Green be hard to upkeep. Are there specific potential issues to bear in mind?

Purchasers in Wooburn Green should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include erosion of pointing joints. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Wooburn Green properties, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for elements such as the junctions of external walls. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts. If you are planning to renovate, consider that the British Geological Survey's GeoReport includes a stone matching service. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there is a possibility of white asbestos pipe insulation being found in the flat. What is asbestos and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials e.g. artex. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in the home appliances.

All forms (including white) are carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to move it and professional advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your Wooburn Green surveyor should note potential asbestos during the Wooburn Green survey and will recommend relevant tests.
