Home Buyers Survey in Frampton Cotterell

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Frampton Cotterell and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Frampton Cotterell property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works on the Frampton Cotterell property, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does give you comprehensive details of the Frampton Cotterell property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Frampton Cotterell, and can a Frampton Cotterell building survey look for signs of flood damage?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and the value of a residence in an at-risk area may be impacted.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the property in Frampton Cotterell or on adjacent sites. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the period property I expect to move into it appeared that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; does Homebuyer Report in Frampton Cotterell advise on the electrical system condition?

When performing a Frampton Cotterell Homebuyer Report the surveyor should report on the condition of the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state of repair. This will include a non invasive view of open or exposed areas of the wiring as well as things, for example verifying the condition of the fixed electrical appliances, for example storage heaters. Inspecting the evidence of any recent PIR carried out by an electrician should usually be part of the survey. Reporting on any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by an electrician will usually form part of the survey.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will insects affect the purchase price of a property in Frampton Cotterell. Is a HomeBuyer Report advisable?

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. Signs may not be obvious, for example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Treatment for pests may include use of poison. The Frampton Cotterell surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.
