Home Buyers Survey in Clifton

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Clifton and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Clifton property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Clifton property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a property but are worried about bugs. What should we do?

Scare stories about property pest problems are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as termites as minor annoyances.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Remedies to insect infestation can include insecticides or removal or excision of affected timber.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Clifton home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a garage) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report will contain an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost. To estimate an accurate estimate of the value of the building your surveyor should use local property market knowledge and other considerations about the property e.g. accommodation The RICS surveyor will also consider style of architecture and draw upon key assumptions like there are no damaging materials. Surveyors disregard certain things like sales incentives.

Additional local Clifton area assumptions like service connections, are made in addition to local environmental concerns like intrusive noises or smells, which will also be factored in.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

House Prices

What things does the surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Clifton ?

There are a great number of factors that can impact on house prices like whether any associated planning permissions come with the property or issues with drainage. .

The most reliable way to get an accurate and professional property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as a core component.

A qualified RICS surveyor will always attend the site as well as considering the large variety of location factors that might affect property prices.
