HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Writtle and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Writtle property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Writtle property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will bugs affect the purchase price of a Writtle building. Will the Building Survey investigate this?

Homes are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. This issue should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. As some infestations can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. Your property surveyor may report on signs of infestation.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I get a full structural survey prior to buying a substantially modified, seventies loft flat near Writtle?

The Full Structural Survey is now known as the Building Survey. When planning to buy an altered home e.g. a poor condition Writtle flat, the Building Survey is the most suitable choice to go for. A HomeBuyer Report has enough detail for a mid century or later unmodified property made out of typical construction materials. Following a thorough site survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, the surveyor's formal report is sent to the prospective buyer running through any significant information on the state of repair of the flat. There are certain limitations with any survey insofar as a RICS surveyor is not able to open up the fabric of the of the Writtle flat, an example being the removing secured panels. Over and above house surveys, flats typically make it harder to survey the building. A surveyor is only able to go over the actual flat although he/she comment on other areas e.g. the roof.
