Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a building but are worried about pests. What should we do?

Houses are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. An affected property may not always be easy to identify. As an example, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Remedies to a serious infestation can include destruction of tainted materials.

RICS Level 2 Survey valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it worked out

Welwyn Garden City RICS Level 2 Surveys a valuation and a rebuilding cost. To fully consider the market value the surveyor will refer to knowledge of Welwyn Garden City and other factors about the property for instance: desirability of the location. The surveyor will also consider materials used and will use key assumptions like the ground is not land filled.

A RICS Level 3 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.

It will be assumed that there aren't any significant legal problems such as there being no on going disputes. Such concerns will be clarified by your solicitor.

Additional local area conjectures, like the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like busy roads, also being considered.
