RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it worked out

Wotton under Edge Homebuyer Reports a RICS qualified surveyor valuation in addition to a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as an integral part of the report. To ascertain an accurate value estimate the surveyor will use knowledge of Wotton under Edge and other considerations relating to the property e.g. general condition The valuer will also consider construction methods and will use other assumptions e.g. the building connected to mains services such as electricity. Surveyors don't value things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local area assumptions, such as use of parking or the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like industrial buildings, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Wotton under Edge, and think we saw signs of pests in the living room. What can we do?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Wotton under Edge building may not be raised during the conveyancing. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. 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.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it to investigate guttering? Will the house surveyor in Wotton under Edge report on this? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that the effect which high levels of rainfall has on homes is rarely paid due attention. For instance, rusted iron elements suggest that the gutters are blocked. This can lead to fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

The good news is that guttering issues are quite easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. If not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.
