Home Buyers Survey in Woodcote Green

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Woodcote Green and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Woodcote Green property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Woodcote Green property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations I need to verify when intending to buy a period property in Woodcote Green in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Woodcote Green are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of local factors and the effect may have on the property. The value of homes is usually higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to the areas retaining their original character. However many areas are falling into a state e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

RICS surveyors are trained to inform you whether the building is or might be within a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are raised as part of the legal process. Unconsented modifications to the property may also be advised, however these should be investigated by your conveyancer. Streeter Marshall are based in 12 Purley Parade, Croydon, London, CR8 2AB and may be prepared to advise further. Tel: 020 8660 4877

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about pests - Will a house surveyor look into this?

Pests like thrips may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Woodcote Green. Regrettably, pest problems can be costly to fix and carry serious health risks. An affected property may not always be easy to identify, for example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Treatment for an infestation may include removal of infected furniture. If you strongly suspect an issue with thrips, or any pest, speak to your Woodcote Green surveyor

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Woodcote Green surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a garage) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report in Woodcote Green will include an independent valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost. To estimate the value of the property the valuer will call upon experience of property in Woodcote Green and other considerations about the property e.g. style of architecture Your Woodcote Green surveyor will also consider style of architecture and use key assumptions such as no damaging building techniques have been employed. Surveyors will ignore certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Further area assumptions like services, are made as well as any significant Woodcote Green environmental concerns like local industry, also being considered.

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

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a renovated farmhouse in Woodcote Green. Will the age of the house be an issue?

Older construction methods and materials can concern buyers. Woodcote Green property built with traditional methods can be difficult to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Construction materials, such as suitable timber, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of property in a conservation area. This may make obtaining a full structural or building survey essential. Contact your surveyor for further advice.
