HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Amesbury and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Amesbury property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the Amesbury property's state of repair in addition to information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We spotted that there is a 29mm crack above the windows in the kitchen, is this subsidence? How could this affect the property, and what subsidence-related defects will my HomeBuyer Report review?

Movement of the foundations of a house is called subsidence. In some older houses cracks may be visible in the Summer months , and in Winter these will close when the materials contract and draw in water. Many buildings develop superficial cracks in a ceiling plaster, as a result of settlement. Inside the house, keep an eye out for new, suddenly visible cracks in brick or render.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Your surveyor

may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

House Prices

I am planning to purchase a property in SP4 for an asking price of £258, 532. What things does the Amesbury qualified RICS surveyor consider on a survey ?

There is a vast array of things which could have a bearing on the price of property ranging from whether correct consents are in place to general regional pricing. It may help to look at house values achieved in the area for similar properties.

The means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £230, 632, which is £27, 900 less than the price being asked. The average for houses and flats was £216, 056. The Old Dairy, 2, Church Road, Idmiston, Salisbury, Wiltshire, Wiltshire, SP4 0AZ a detached house sold for £477, 500 .

In order to get a formal home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report in Amesbury which includes a professional valuation by default.

A professional local surveyor will attend the site as well as factoring in the countless location variables that have a bearing on house prices.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a building close to a landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including commercial waste disposal. Of course nobody wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Worries might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health issues like birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Amesbury surveyors will find any structural issues connected with the site. Your solicitor will commission conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency databases as well as Wiltshire Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
