About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Acocks Green

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Acocks Green and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Acocks Green property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations on the property, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Acocks Green property's condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

This will include whether the mains is connected as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated appliances for example - prefabricated flues.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My partner spotted signs of pests in the hall - Do we need a chartered surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. An affected building may not always be easy to identify. As an example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.
