About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Ampthill

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Ampthill and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ampthill property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Ampthill property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

A resident warned us about vermin on the road. Is a Property Survey advisable?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Ampthill building may not be raised during the conveyancing. Regrettably, pests can seriously reduce the value of a property and affect the health of residents. Signs may not be obvious. As an example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Treatment for vermin may include insecticides and removal of infected furniture.

Substandard guttering

In a Ampthill HomeBuyer Report what can 'E3' include?

The drainage system is inspected visually, where access is possible. This section does not include blocked drains below ground. Loose or damaged gutters is one example. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for house purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a residence. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give house purchasers a clear understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention.
