About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Wheathampstead

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Wheathampstead and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Wheathampstead property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Wheathampstead property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it advisable to look into downspouts? Can damaged downspouts decrease our property's value?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the impact rain can have on Wheathampstead homes is ignored. Signs that gutters are blocked include spalling masonry. This can lead to staining of wallpaper and damp.

Whether buying in Wheathampstead or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve. If not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Wheathampstead surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Wheathampstead building will include an independent valuation and will also include a rebuilding cost as part of the report. When calculating the value of the property your chartered surveyor will take into account in depth understanding of the Wheathampstead market and other things about the property e.g. number of bedrooms. Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and will draw upon other assumptions e.g. no damaging building techniques have been used. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area assumptions like the property being insurable, are made in addition to local environmental problems like pig farms, also being considered.
