About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Woodford Bridge

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Woodford Bridge and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Woodford Bridge property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you comprehensive details of the Woodford Bridge property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Woodford Bridge, and will the home buyers survey inquire into any flooding damage, or if other properties have been affected?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. In addition, the HomeBuyer Report may advise on urgent repairs.An awareness of characteristics of the Woodford Bridge area likely to affect the property also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the property owner or occupier, but this information may not be accurate.

No recent Woodford Bridge flood warnings have been made (source: Environment Agency).

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Woodford Bridge include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a RICS qualified surveyor valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost. To properly appraise an accurate estimate of the value of the building your RICS valuer will combine awareness of the Woodford Bridge property market as well as other factors about the property e.g. state of repair.

The surveyor will also consider construction methods and use key assumptions like there are no dangerous materials.

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 surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there are no problematic legal problems for example no laws are broken by intended use of property. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Further Woodford Bridge conjectures, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
