Looking for a Home Buyers Survey? Which of the 3 should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    The Homebuyer Report is the best choice if buying a property made of standard materials i.e. tile and brick, in reasonable repair and built in the last 100 years.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Bagshot

    The Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Bagshot) is also conducted by a RICS accredited surveyor but is more exhaustive. Opt for this for non standard e.g. box frame construction homes.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Bagshot and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Bagshot property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Bagshot property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Bagshot, what warnings would you give for a 90s house built from rat-trap bond walls? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact does wet conditions have on a property in Bagshot, and does our Bagshot HomeBuyer Report mention it? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Despite England's reputation for wet weather heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on Bagshot homes are rarely paid due attention. One indication that rainwater goods are damaged is damp stains around drainage. This can lead to cracked foundations and subsidence.

Fortunately, guttering issues are generally easy to remedy. If not cleared out regularly, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

House Prices

We are planning to be purchasing a flat in Bagshot (GU19) for £210, 167. What things will a Bagshot RICS chartered surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Bagshot on a RICS valuation ?

There is a vast array of things which could affect the price of property like the likelihood of getting planning permission to extend or the number of bathrooms. It often helps to put side by side flat prices recorded in the same area for similar flats. The average flat price paid in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £195, 167, which is £15, 000 less than the amount you are paying. The combined house/flat average was £308, 140. 13, Hawkesworth Drive, Bagshot, Surrey Heath, Surrey, GU19 5QY a leasehold flat sold for £234, 000 .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get an independent property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as part of the service. A RICS chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).
