Home Buyers Survey in Bagshot

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Bagshot and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Bagshot property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Bagshot property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Bagshot property will include an independent valuation and a rebuilding cost as part of the survey. In order to determine an accurate value estimate the valuer will pair awareness of the Bagshot property market and other things relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location. The valuer will also consider style of architecture and will make certain other assumptions such as there are no dangerous materials.

A Building Survey won't 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. It will also be assumed that there aren't any problematic legal problems for example no laws are broken by use of property. Such concerns will be clarified by your solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions, like problematic roads and access, are made as well as any significant environmental problems like mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw evidence of that windows in the kitchen did not line up, is this subsidence? What subsidence information does the Bagshot Home Buyers Survey include?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a building, but some degree of movement will always occur. Recently built homes, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the building. Often, homes in Bagshot are constructed from a range of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high sand, gravel or chalk content, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks. A severe change in humidity or ambient temperature can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, possibly as a result of lower-quality materials.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems I should check on if purchasing a converted flat in Bagshot in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by local councils.

Home Buyers Surveys in Bagshot must have relevant knowledge of local area factors and any relation may have on the property and its value. The price of property is typically more than prices outside the area as a result of conservation areas being in good order. However a growing number are falling into poor condition e.g. unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors can be expected to report if the home looks like it may be within a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will recommend additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unauthorised modifications to the property should be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.
