About Us

Home Buyers Survey in St Neots

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in St Neots and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the St Neots property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will give a thorough analysis of the St Neots property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

A neighbour warned us about pests on the street. Do we need a RICS surveyor?

Homes in St Neots are generally free of vermin, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Treatment for insect infestation may include traps or removal of infected furniture. If you believe house longhorn beetle, or any pest, may be present, request that your St Neots surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our home surveyor consider flood damage?

The lives of many property owners in St Neots and across the UK have been impacted by flood damage, and owning a St Neots house in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. It is strongly recommended that the property is protected, before water damage starts, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect residential property enables the RICS surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the occupier, but this information may not be accurate.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 16th Century farmstead. Will the age of the house be a problem?

Many buyers would be interested in owning a unique or characterful property. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can sometimes be an issue, and St Neots property showcasing traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced.
