About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Delabole

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Delabole and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Delabole property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension on the Delabole property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Delabole property's condition as well as an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a boundary wall)

The Homebuyer Report contains an impartial valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. When calculating an accurate value estimate your chartered surveyor will factor in depth understanding of the Delabole market and other factors about the property for instance: accommodation The surveyor will also consider construction methods and will draw upon key assumptions e.g. there being no serious defects.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there is an absence of any impossible to rectify legal issues such as the tenure being as indicated (e.g commonhold). Advice should be sought from your solicitor.

Further area assumptions, such as stairway access to a maisonette or services, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like brine mining activity, also being considered.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The person in the flat below said that mould had been a concern. What does the building surveyor in Delabole pay attention to during the survey?

Homes in Delabole in good condition could unfortunately be experiencing roofing woes. Every element should be checked, e.g. gables. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a poor asphalt covering.

Roof upkeep need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A contractor can provide an estimate.
