Home Buyers Survey in Willingham

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Willingham and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Willingham property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Willingham property's condition as well as including advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Willingham surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a surveyor valuation and will also include a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as standard. To work out an accurate estimate of the value of the building your independent surveyor will take into account knowledge of Willingham and other factors relating to the property for instance: accommodation Surveyors also examine construction methods and draw upon other assumptions e.g. there being no significant defects. 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. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any impossible to rectify legal problems such as the tenure being as indicated (e.g commonhold). Such concerns will be clarified by your legal representative.

Additional local Willingham area conjectures, for example the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like nearby railway tracks, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a property and the vendor has stated that it has been partially constructed with Bath stone. What potential issues should we be aware of?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Defects affecting stone-built property can vary, mould being relatively common. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Maintenance tips include clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the unmodernised property I am hoping to buy I think we saw that there were damaged electrical sockets, will the surveyor write anything on electrical system condition?

During a Willingham Building Survey the surveyor should make a note on the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in an unsafe state.

This will include a visual inspection (without removing any fittings) of the accessible sections of the wiring on top of concerns such as verifying the condition of the fitted appliances, e.g. storage radiators or verifying the condition of visible wiring.

Confirming the existence of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the Homebuyer report in Willingham.
