HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Booker and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Booker property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

I intend to buy a detached property in HP14, being marketed for £347, 914. What considerations will a surveyor allow for when conducting a RICS valuation ?

There are a huge number of issues which could affect property values from the tenure i.e. freehold or leasehold to the condition of shared common parts. As an indicator, one can try to look at values recorded in Booker for similar houses.

The average house price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £319, 014, which is £28, 900 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The average factoring in houses and flats was £313, 984. Wychwood, Water End Lane, Studley Green, High Wycombe, Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, HP14 3XN a detached property was purchased for £197, 000 .

The only way for home buyers to get a formal property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as part of the service.

The local surveyor will always visit the property in addition to allowing for all other area issues that can affect the value of property.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1850s Booker house with stone walls. Which related issues should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Upkeep fees for stone-built houses can be higher than for more standard. Problems which impact stone-built houses can vary greatly, with issues like penetrating damp being quote common.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Biffa Waste Services Ltd, Head Office, Coronation Road, Cressex, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, HP12 3TZ, quarrying Clay & Shale, for details. Call 01494 521221 for more information.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Booker. Is there any Flemish bond upkeep suggestions we should be aware of??

Brick-constructed buildings in Booker feature several advantages in comparison to other forms of building, but they can also experience several common problems, including crypto-florescence and vertical cracking. For example, diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away and may require immediate attention. O'Neill Brickwork may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 0161-264 6033 or 4 The Parklands, Stockport, SK4 1QZ.

As an example, common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
