Home Buyers Survey in Wokingham

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Wokingham and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Wokingham property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension on the property, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Wokingham property's state of repair along with advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I want to acquire a property in RG40, being marketed for £396, 998. What things will a Wokingham RICS chartered surveyor take into account during a RICS valuation ?

Any number of issues which could affect the price of property ranging from the legality of extensions to the architectural style of the property. One method is to analyse values achieved in the area for comparable properties.

This means house prices recorded in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £368, 498, which is £28, 500 less than the price you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £337, 497. Acorn Lodge, Squirrel Walk, Wokingham, Wokingham, Wokingham, RG41 3AS a detached house sold for £455, 000 .

The most reliable way for you to get an accurate and professional property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Wokingham. What recommendations will you make?

Brick residential property indicate diverse problems. One frequently reported defect is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. Brickwork First at 15 Front St, Pelton, Chester Le Street, DH2 1QW should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 07931 387135.

A great deal of variety of brick building have been used across the country for centuries. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about bugs on the street - What should we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. When purchasing a building, this matter should be borne in mind. An affected building may not always be easy to identify.

For example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Remedies to insect infestation can include removal or excision of affected timber.
