HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Almondsbury and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Almondsbury property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer comprehensive details of the Almondsbury property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including domestic rubbish. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries include structurally instability. Health problems for example spina bifida have been associated to landfill sites .

House Prices

I am going to acquire a house in Almondsbury (BS32) for £264, 333. What different issues will your Almondsbury RICS chartered surveyor consider when conducting a property valuation report ?

There are a huge number of issues that can affect house prices from the legality of extensions to whether the property is overlooked. You can try to compare with the prices of house recorded in Almondsbury for similar houses.

The average house price recorded at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £255, 833, which is £8, 500 less than the price being asked and the flat/house average was £249, 370. 100, Campion Drive, Bradley Stoke, Bristol, South Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, BS32 0BH a detached property was purchased for £249, 950 .

The only way for home buyers to get an impartial house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a professional valuation as part of the service. Your surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

A professional chartered surveyor will attend the property as well as allowing for the wealth of area factors that can affect property values.

Asbestos roof tiles

I am concerned that there is asbestos pipe lagging insulation being found in property. Is this a major concern and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous material. Some types may be in building materials such as fire doors.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in duct connectors. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or asbestosis following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered however, not to remove it and professional advice must be taken as soon as possible. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a Almondsbury HomeBuyer report. However they will report on suspected asbestos and should advise accordingly.
