HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Bishops Waltham and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Bishops Waltham property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Bishops Waltham property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Does a Home Survey discuss soil composition the report?

Clay soil can create several issues for home owners. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including uneven soil compaction. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable widening cracks, to complete structural failure. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like ensuring rainwater goods and drainage all function efficiently. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when purchasing a house near to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. commercial waste material. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Worries might include structurally instability .

Surveyors in Bishops Waltham will consider structural issues connected with the landfill. Your solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as Winchester Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

House Prices

There is a house in SO32 priced at £366, 203. What different issues will your qualified RICS surveyor take into account when calculating house prices in Bishops Waltham ?

There is a vast array of things that can add to or subtract from the price of property like plumbing problems or whether the home is landlocked. You can try to analyse the prices of house registered at the Land Registry for similar houses.

This means house prices paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £356, 103, which is £10, 100 less than the price you are intending to pay and the flat/house average was £336, 574. Mulberry House, Oakmore Park, Durley, Southampton, Winchester, Hampshire, SO32 2NU a detached home sold for £400, 000 .

The best way for you to get a formal property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as a core component.

A RICS chartered surveyor should actually visit the building in addition to factoring in the myriad of area influences that can affect property prices.
