HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Blandfordum and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Blandfordum property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Blandfordum property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

We are planning to be buying a property in Blandfordum (DT11). The vendor is asking £147, 697. What considerations will a Blandfordum chartered surveyor evaluate when calculating house prices in Blandfordum ?

Any number of issues that can impact on the price of property such as whether the property is mortgageable or the likelihood of development occurring nearby. It often helps to put side by side flat values achieved in the nearby area for similar properties. The mean flat price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £134, 097, which is £13, 600 less than the asking price. The house/flat average was £205, 615. 59, The Studio, Salisbury Street, Blandford Forum, North Dorset, Dorset, DT11 7PX was purchased for £150, 000 .

The only way to get a formal property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report as an inclusive part.

A RICS surveyor will visit the property in addition to considering the large variety of area issues that might affect house prices.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have learnt that clay soil can be a source of difficulty for property in Blandfordum. Will your Property Survey look into this?

Clay soil can create a range of issues for house owners. Specific issues include soil swelling. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. Signs like a hard-to-open kitchen door or warping of floorboards can be early indications of very serious structural issues. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Blandfordum, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Gas flame

Will the qualified RICS surveyor check the serviceability of the gas flues?

Your local surveyor will locate and visually survey any accessible parts of the system. This means things like the meter location/position at the home, as well as gas affiliated fixtures e.g. balanced flues. However, the Blandfordum RICS chartered surveyor won't remove the gas fittings and surveyors are not qualified to carry out any tests whatsoever on the gas system. Gas is potentially hazardous and if there are any worries relating to gas installations of any type, contact a gas safe engineer.

The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 obligate landlords to commission appliance and installation inspections every year and punishments for failure to comply are criminal .
