About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Biggleswade

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Biggleswade and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Biggleswade property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works on the property, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give comprehensive details of the Biggleswade property's condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is damp weather an issue in Biggleswade? Can damaged rainwater goods decrease our property's value?

Both in Biggleswade, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact rainfall can have on buildings in Biggleswade is not considered by home buyers. If you have only visited the home in dry conditions, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that rainwater goods are blocked include mildew or damp in the roof. Poor drainage can lead to staining of wallpaper and damp.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to repair fairly cheaply. Where this is poorly maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Conservation area

Will there be any issues we would be advised to check out if buying a building in Biggleswade in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by local authorities. Surveyors in Biggleswade are required by RICS to have local knowledge of local area issues and any bearing they have with the building. Prices is, more often than not, more than prices outside the area as a result of the areas being unspoilt. However many conservation areas are falling into shoddy condition for example - increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Surveyors are expected advise you whether the location is/might be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Biggleswade Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by your solicitor. Unconsented changes to the building will also be advised but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer. Woodwards are a local firm situated at 3 High Street, Central Bedfordshire, Bedfordshire, SG18 0JE will be prepared to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01767 601606
