HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Burnham On Sea and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Burnham On Sea property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Burnham On Sea property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Will the House Survey consider this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home will have an impact, with shrinking of clay soil and soil swelling being relatively common. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! Steps like keeping standing water on the property in check can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. 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.

House Prices

I want to acquire a house in TA8 for around £222, 593. What considerations will a Burnham On Sea qualified RICS surveyor allow for in the process of a professional valuation ?

There is a vast array of things that can impact on the price of property from proximity to road noise to the size of bedrooms (single/double). It is useful to consider prices achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties.

The average house price completed between July and October in 2012 was £195, 193, which is £27, 400 less than the amount the vendor is asking for and the flat/house average was £181, 110. 18, Parsonage Road, Berrow, Burnham-On-Sea, Sedgemoor, Somerset, TA8 2NJ a detached property sold for £85, 000 .

The most reliable way for you to get an impartial home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as a core component.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of site clearance) and what does it include?

Burnham On Sea Homebuyer Reports an independent valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost. To properly appraise the correct valuation your surveyor will use awareness of the Burnham On Sea property market and other factors relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms Surveyors also reflect on materials used and will make certain other assumptions e.g. it is connected to mains services.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. RICS valuations assume that there are no major legal problems such as proper access over pathways. These will be investigated by your legal representative.

Further Burnham On Sea assumptions like service connections, are made in addition to any local environmental concerns like flightpaths, which will also be factored in.
