HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Bamber Bridge and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Bamber Bridge property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications on the property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Bamber Bridge property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a potential buy to let detached property close to good transport links in PR5 for £151, 156. What factors will local surveyor allow for when valuing house prices in Bamber Bridge ?

There are many factors which could have a bearing on the price of property such as the square footage or the condition of shared common parts. It may help to weigh up prices against house prices recorded in Bamber Bridge for similar houses.

The average house price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £129, 756, which is £21, 400 less than the amount being asked. The average for houses and flats was £129, 267. 4, Poulton Crescent, Hoghton, Preston, Preston, Lancashire, PR5 0LY a detached home sold for £200, 000 .

The only way for home buyers to get a formal property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an integral component.

Your RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

The surveyor will always attend the building in addition to allowing for all other location factors that can affect the value of property.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled homes generate lots of maintenance costs for purchasers? Are there any potential issues that need to be investigated?

Buyers of a Grade I listed building should consider that they may need to ensure any future repairs are 'sympathetic'. These restrictions are often rigorously enforced. Defects such as algae affect many stone-walled buildings in Bamber Bridge. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Lydiate Lane Quarry, Lydiate Lane, Cuerden, Leyland, Preston, Lancashire, PR5 2SA for details. Call 01772 624464 for more information.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance caused problems in a house we used to own. What will our RICS surveyor check when the home is surveyed?

Residential property in Bamber Bridge in good condition can still be subject to problems like incorrectly applied waterproofing. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the trusses to the parapet walls, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

The expense of a complete replacement, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a roofing contractor a quote for any suggested work.
