HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Caistor and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Caistor property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Caistor property's condition and it includes information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the Surveyor be looking for on a stucco rendered Victorian home in Caistor that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really smooth type of render. Commonly stucco is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth and even finish. It is highly appealing and is often found on Georgian buildings. The composition is very similar to plaster or mortar. Stucco is often prone to defect and Caistor Building Surveys frequently highlight issues e.g. when it is exposed to driving rain which gets saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems might result from the heavy loads such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Fixing problems with stucco may be expensive as the skills are getting rarer.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the residential surveyor check flood damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of residents in Caistor and across the country. Both house buyers and home owners in areas at risk of flooding are right to be worried. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. Flood water can enter a residential property through several routes, including landscaping or paved areas sloping towards the property.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. The surveyor may ask the occupier if the residential property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

House Prices

There is a detached house close to LN7 with an asking price of £201, 220. What things does a Caistor RICS chartered surveyor consider when valuing house prices in Caistor on a property valuation report ?

There is a vast array of things that can add to or subtract from property values like the history of the property (e.g does it have a murky past) or if there is any evidence of fungal decay. It can help to compare with values recorded in the same area for comparable properties.

The average house price completed between July and October in 2012 was £198, 620, which is £2, 600 less than the price you are intending to pay. 2, Augustus Walk, Caistor, Market Rasen, West Lindsey, Lincolnshire, LN7 6GH a detached property sold for £209, 995 .

An impartial way for you to get a professional house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation by default. A RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme.
