Which Property Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Bourne

    The Homebuyer Report is the best choice when you are purchasing a home built from standard building materials such as brick and tile, in reasonable repair and built in the last 100 years.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Bourne property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Bourne property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I am going to buy a property in Bourne, PE10, being marketed for £159, 081. What will a surveyor consider when conducting a RICS survey ?

There are a huge number of issues that might affect the price of property ranging from state (of neglect) of exterior to whether there are any conservation area infringements. It often helps to compare with the prices of house achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties.

This means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £180, 281, which is £21, 200 more than the amount you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £174, 100. Limetree Cottage, Main Road, Dunsby, Bourne, South Kesteven, Lincolnshire, PE10 0UB a detached house sold for £125, 000 .

The best way to get an accurate house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as part of the service. Your local surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the mid-century home we want to lease it appeared that there is old wiring. will the Bourne surveyor write anything on the electrics?

When conducting a Bourne Homebuyer Report the surveyor should usually report on the electrics if it is obvious that they are in a less than satisfactory condition. This should include a general check of exposed sections of the wiring or fusebox as well as areas like the main electricity supply. Inspecting the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by an electrician on the property being surveyed will form part of the survey in Bourne. Verifying the location of the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by an electrician should usually form part of the survey in Bourne .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a ground floor flat in Bourne, does the property surveyor inquire into flooding, or if other properties have been affected?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Bourne and nationwide, is a serious concern for residents, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. It is strongly recommended that prevention methods are considered, before flood damage occurs, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. The HomeBuyer Report will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a HomeBuyer Report if the surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house in Bourne is at risk.
