HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Catterick Garrison and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Catterick Garrison property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Catterick Garrison property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain an instant Catterick Garrison Home Survey Quote via our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see a property I am meaning to move into I noticed that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; does the surveyor advise the general state of the electrical system?

When conducting a Catterick Garrison Home Survey a surveyor will usually add detail on the state of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in an unsafe state of repair. This will include a general check of the open areas of the wiring on top of concerns such as checking the condition of fitted electrical appliances e.g. water heaters or verifying the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Inspecting any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Catterick Garrison.

The IEE recommend a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

House Prices

Is £131, 028 the right sort of price to buy a property in DL10 for and What things will a Catterick Garrison qualified RICS surveyor allow for during a home buyers survey ?

There is a near endless list of things which could affect property values including the length of lease (and unexpired lease term) or the status of the central heating. As an indicator, one can try to weigh up prices against flat values recorded in Catterick Garrison for similar properties. The mean flat price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £114, 128, which is £16, 900 less than the amount being asked. The house/flat average was £187, 643. Hulse House, Flat 27, Lyons Road, Richmond, Richmondshire, North Yorkshire, DL10 4NS recently sold for £208, 000 .

The most accurate way for home buyers to get an independent house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as a core component.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't quite see the justification to order the full structural survey when looking into a shabby mid terrace bungalow in Catterick Garrison instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Albeit now often still described as Full Structural Surveys, this most technical survey has been replaced by Building Surveys If you are planning to buy an unconventional property such as an extended Catterick Garrison house, this is the most suitable RICS survey to complete. Usually within 2 to 3 days after a thorough visual inspection of all accessible areas, a written report is posted and emailed to the buyer outlining in depth and notable insight about the construction of the house. There will be one or two limitations with a Building Survey because RICS chartered surveyor is not able to force or open up the fabric of the Catterick Garrison house e.g. removing roof space contents.
