Home Buyers Survey in Wellingborough

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Wellingborough and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Wellingborough property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Wellingborough property's condition as well as including advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will your Wellingborough Surveyor consider on a stucco rendered semi detached home in Wellingborough that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually just smooth type of render. Commonly it is layered over red brick that dries to an even finish. Stucco is highly attractive and was often applied to Georgian buildings for example. It may contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as a wire under mesh. to help stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Wellingborough Building Surveys commonly detail any number of problems for example trapped moisture leading to damp problems needing repair.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may involve sulphate attack from sulphates or salts derived from wet bricks. Re-coating Stucco problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Wellingborough, and think we saw signs of pests in the loft conversion - Will the Building Survey investigate this?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. Evidence may not be easy to find, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies.

Treatment for an infestation may include chemical treatment or destruction of tainted materials. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Wellingborough include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees e.g legal fees) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Wellingborough property will contain an impartial valuation and also a reinstatement cost estimate as an integral part of the report. To properly appraise the property's value your independent surveyor will refer to local Wellingborough market factors and other factors about the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also examine certain fixtures and fittings and make certain other assumptions like there are no damaging materials.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area assumptions, like connection to sewers, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like intrusive noises or smells, which will also be factored in.
