Home Buyers Survey in Burwell

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Burwell and which is cheaper?

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

If the Burwell property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Burwell property's condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Burwell building with a loft conversion - What aspects of the building's roof will be investigated when the survey is carried out?

Burwell property that are otherwise ideal could unfortunately be experiencing roof maintenance problems, such as bad drainage. From tie beams to dormer windows, the whole roof will be taken into account, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Roof maintenance can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a local roofing specialist for the job itself.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact does rain have on our new house? Will the Burwell surveyor report on this?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the effect which wet weather has on a structure is rarely considered properly.

Signs that drainage are blocked include leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage. The good news is that these defects are generally easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. If disregarded, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

House Prices

I intend to buy a property in Burwell (CB25). The asking price is £266, 566. What will the Burwell surveyor consider in the process of a RICS valuation ?

There are many factors which could affect property values ranging from national factors such as interest rates to whether it has any outdoor space. It may help to analyse values registered at the Land Registry for similar houses.

The average house price registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £265, 266, which is £1, 300 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The average factoring in houses and flats was £252, 946. 105A, The Causeway, Burwell, Cambridge, East Cambridgeshire, Cambridgeshire, CB25 0DU a detached property sold for £235, 000 .

In order for you to get an impartial home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report in Burwell which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as standard. Your surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits to commission the full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report if purchasing a doer-upper bungalow?

Full Structural Surveys are no longer offered by RICS Surveyors as a newer detailed type of survey classified as the Building Survey, is now offered by surveyors. If intending to buy an unconventional home like a tatty Burwell house, this is the best choice of home survey to have carried out. Following a thorough site survey of the inside and outside of the house, a written report is delivered to the purchaser detailing thorough and crucial information in relation to the construction of the house. There are certain provisos with any survey because a local surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the Burwell house, an example being the removing loft contents.
