HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Carlton and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Carlton property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Carlton property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

We are intend to be acquiring a detached house in NG4 for around the £149, 269 mark. What will the surveyor consider when estimating house prices in Carlton on a Home Survey ?

There are many factors that can affect house prices from noise to whether there is a flying freehold. You can try to consider values achieved in the nearby area for similar houses.

The means house prices completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £134, 969 - £14, 300 less than £149, 269. The combined house/flat average was £129, 786. 4, Lawn Grove, Gedling, Nottingham, Gedling, Nottinghamshire, NG4 3HT a detached property sold for £60, 000 .

The most reliable way to get an accurate property valued is to commission a Homebuyer Report in Carlton which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default. A RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme.

Conservatory

In the HomeBuyer Report what might a Condition Rating 1 mean for 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

E7 elements are visually inspected. Inappropriate use of internal doors in doorways leading outside will also be mentioned in the report. Rusted conservatory walls or columns is an example of this.

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for house buyers deciding whether or not to purchase a home. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. A rating of 'green', or 1, means that the element of the property being investigated is in good condition, but regular upkeep may still be required. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed.

Traditionally built property

What should we pay attention to when purchasing older property in Carlton? What should be budgeted for repairs?

Many purchasers have looked at purchasing property with real personality. For houses in Carlton built before the 20th Century, age, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts, and Property built with traditional methods can be a drain to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller.
