Home Buyers Survey in Wantage

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Wantage and which would be the cheapest?

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

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

If you are planning to make any alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Wantage property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any problems I need to check out when purchasing a property in Wantage near a conservation area, particularly in relation to property values?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Wantage must possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local area factors and the relation they have with the property and its value. The price of property is generally higher because of them retaining original features.

RICS surveyors can be expected to inform you if the home is/might be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are raised during the legal process. Unauthorised adjustments to the building may also be advised, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about vermin in the house in Wantage we plan to buy - Should we get a chartered surveyor?

Wantage purchasers should know that is not a requirement that a seller report on an infestation. This concern should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Remedies to pests can include removal or excision of affected timber.RICS guidelines on the issue of infestations are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your home surveyor.
