HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Blythe Bridge and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Blythe Bridge property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Blythe Bridge property's condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

Is £156, 559 in the right ball park price to pay for a house in ST11 in Blythe Bridge for and what will the Blythe Bridge qualified RICS surveyor consider when carrying out a RICS valuation ?

A myriad of factors exist which could have a bearing on the price of property such as the tenure or the number of bathrooms. One method is to look at the prices of house achieved in the nearby area for similar houses.

The average house price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £168, 659, which is £12, 100 more than the amount you are intending to pay. 177A, Uttoxeter Road, Draycott, Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire Moorlands, Staffordshire, ST11 9AB a detached property was purchased for £70, 000 .

The most reliable way to get a formal house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as standard. A chartered surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

The RICS chartered surveyor will attend the property as well as considering the variety of area variables affecting property values.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Blythe Bridge, and can a Blythe Bridge chartered surveyor investigate any flooding, or whether flooding has affected nearby homes?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Met Office). Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. In addition, the house survey may offer suggestions for better flood defences.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect property enables the RICS surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The RICS surveyor may ask the vendor or agent if the property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A next-door neighbour warned us about pests in the area. What can we do?

Homes in Blythe Bridge are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Regrettably, infestations can be very expensive to resolve and affect the health of residents. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.
