About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Westbury

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Westbury property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Westbury property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we consider rainwater goods? Can damaged rainwater goods decrease our property's value?

I find it odd that the effect which high levels of rainfall has on Westbury houses is not given enough thought. As an example, rusted iron elements indicate that the downspouts are a cause for concern. If you have suspicions, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

The good news is that these defects are generally easy to resolve.However, the damage caused, where not maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of if buying a property in the region Penleigh Tip No 3 and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: industrial refuse disposal. Thousands of sites affect hundreds of thousands of people throughout the UK including Westbury. Concerns might include chemicals like dioxins. Health problems such as abdominal wall problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Westbury will flag up any structural issues connected with the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark database and Wiltshire Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Westbury home survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Westbury property will contain a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and also a reinstatement cost estimate. To estimate the property's value the valuer will relate to local Westbury market factors and other considerations about the property for instance: style of architecture. Your Westbury surveyor will also consider construction type and use key assumptions, for example the ground is not land filled.

A Building survey won't 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. The valuation also assumes that there aren't any serious legal issues like Rights of access and egress over all communal areas. Such concerns will be unravelled by your solicitor.

Further area assumptions, like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any Westbury environmental concerns like busy roads, which will also be factored in.

English Heritage

I am purchasing a property close to Edington Priory (Site Of) , will this affect the property's value?

Edington Priory (Site Of) is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local importance can enhance the desirability of an area. Examples of other sites of interest include Long Barrow, Tinhead Hill and Monk'S Conduit Well House.. A RICS surveyor will consider many local factors during the homebuyer report in Westbury. See the English Heritage website for further details on Edington Priory (Site Of).

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the unmodernised property I am hoping to move into it looked like there is old wiring - does a the surveyor advise on the electrical system?

When conducting a Westbury Home Survey a RICS surveyor will comment on the overall electrical system if it appears that the electrics are in an unsafe state. A professional surveyor is required to report on things like inspecting the state of repair of the fitted appliances such as water heaters or checking the state of a sample of switch gear. Inspecting any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Westbury.

The IEE suggest that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be conducted every ten years (or every 5 if letting out).
