About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Waterbeach

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Waterbeach and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Waterbeach property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Waterbeach property's general condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco house in Waterbeach.

Stucco is really a kind of smooth solid render. Commonly it is applied to red brick that sets to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The coating is highly beautiful and is was often applied to Georgian buildings. it can be problematic and Surveyors sometimes reveal potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. when movement of the underlying wall results in cracks that allow for water penetration. Other issues might result from the heavy loads above such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Remedying problems with stucco may be costly as the skills are getting harder to find.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Waterbeach property will contain a property valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the report. When calculating an accurate estimate of the value of the building your independent surveyor will pair knowledge of Waterbeach as well as other factors about the property e.g. number of bedrooms Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and will use key assumptions such as there are no dangerous materials. Surveyors don't value certain things like furnishings, for example curtains. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there aren't any major legal issues e.g. there being no on going disputes. These will be investigated by your legal representative.

Additional local Waterbeach area assumptions, like the access roads not being in private control, are made as well as any significant Waterbeach environmental issues like mining activity, which will also be factored in. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any advantages for doing the full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report if purchasing a neglected end of terrace house?

Full Structural Surveys are no longer offered and the new technical survey which is classified as the Building Survey, is now available. When buying an altered Waterbeach home, for example a neglected house, this is now the right survey to choose. It can give in depth and relevant advice concerning the homes construction and uses along with any defects after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings.

. Outside buildings should be reported on during the survey.

House Prices

We are hoping to be buying a house near. What considerations will a qualified surveyor consider when estimating house prices in Waterbeach on a Home Survey ?

There are a huge number of issues that might affect property values for instance the homes proximity to contaminated land or the amount of light it receives. .

The best way for home buyers to get an independent home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as a core component.
