Home Buyers Survey in Stotfold

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Stotfold and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Stotfold property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Stotfold property's condition as well as information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the Stotfold property we're buying, but we are not certain. What should we do?

Pests like thrips may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Stotfold. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Remedies to a serious infestation can include use of insecticides or removal or excision of affected timber. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Stotfold? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Regular rainfall is common in Stotfold and across the country, but the impact rain can have on a property is not given the attention it deserves by house purchasers. Signs that downspouts are a cause for concern include rotten wooden gutters. If you are worried, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

In most cases, these defects are usually easy to remedy. If untreated or poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Other external areas of the property

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Stotfold what does 'E9' include?

One example would be ledger board problems. The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Your surveyor can provide more details if required.

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a house or flat. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green how concerning each aspect of the report is.
