About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Fenstanton

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Fenstanton and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Fenstanton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Fenstanton property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My husband spotted signs of pests in the bathroom. What can we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This matter should be taken seriously. An affected building may not always be easy to identify, for example, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Remedies to vermin can include insecticides or removal of infected furniture. If you strongly suspect an issue with dust mites, or any pest, speak to your chartered surveyor

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it worked out

Fenstanton Homebuyer Reports a valuation and a reinstatement cost. When calculating the correct valuation the surveyor will relate to local Fenstanton market factors and other factors relating to the property for instance: size The RICS surveyor will also consider materials used and will use key assumptions like there are no damaging materials.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. RICS valuations assume that there aren't any serious legal issues like no laws are broken by intended use of property. These will be investigated by your solicitor.

Further Fenstanton conjectures like service connections, are made in addition to any Fenstanton environmental issues like intrusive noises or smells, which will also be factored in.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Are wet conditions an issue in Fenstanton? Could damaged drainage lower the property value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the impact wet weather can have on property is not given the attention it deserves. If you have visited the house on a dry day, issues may have been hidden. Signs that rainwater goods are blocked include damp stains around drainage, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to repair. However, if the drains are disregarded, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Conservation area

Will there be any things I should check on when intending to buy a converted flat in Fenstanton in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local authorities. Surveyors in Fenstanton must have local knowledge of local area issues and any effect may have with the building. The price of property is usually higher due to the areas being in good order. However many conservation areas have fallen into a poor state e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Surveyors will advise you whether the location is possibly classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Fenstanton Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are carried out during the legal process. Out of keeping adjustments to the building may be noted but these are really more a concern for the lawyer. Miller Sands are based in Regent House, South Cambridgeshire, Cambridgeshire, CB24 9NP should be prepared to give you some pointers. Tel: 01223 202345
