About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Hatton

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Hatton and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Hatton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Hatton property's general condition along with information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

A resident warned us about insects in the area. What advice should we get?

Pests like carpet beetle larvae may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Hatton. Regrettably, pests can impact a home's worth and carry serious health risks. An affected home may not always be easy to identify. As an example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Treatment for an infestation may include chemical treatment. If you strongly suspect an issue with carpet beetle larvae, or any pest, speak to your RICS surveyor

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1870s Hatton property with stone walls. Which related issues should we consider, and what does the survey cover?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, though the advent of Portland cement made lime mortar. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Hatton include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

Hatton Homebuyer Reports a valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost estimate as part of the survey. To be able to determine the property's value your chartered surveyor will relate to area knowledge and other considerations relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location.

Surveyors also evaluate materials used and will make certain key assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been used. Surveyors disregard certain things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local Hatton area assumptions like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to local environmental issues like pig farms, which will also be factored in. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
