HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Colwall and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

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

If you are planning to carry out major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer comprehensive details of the Colwall property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

We are would like to purchasing a detached house in WR13 for around £409, 772. What things does a Colwall chartered surveyor take into account when valuing house prices in Colwall ?

There are many factors that can affect house prices e.g. the existence of any restrictions over use of the property or the direction the house faces. As an indicator, one can try to consider house values achieved in the area for similar houses.

The means house prices paid between July and October in 2012 was £389, 372, which is £20, 400 less than the amount you are intending to pay (£370, 942 was the blended house/flat average). Old Forge Cottage, Walwyn Road, Upper Colwall, Malvern, Malvern Hills, Worcestershire, WR13 6PL a detached property sold for £118, 000 .

The most reliable way for you to get a professional home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which

includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default. A qualified RICS surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Flemish bond guidelines for upkeep, can you help?

Brick-built structures demonstrate several benefits, but they will also indicate distinct issues. This could be anything from badly applied render to crypto-florescence. For instance, damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork and should be taken very seriously. Barnard K should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 14 Freda Corbett Cl, London, SE15 6UN or 020 7635 8805.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface). Consider renegotiating the price of the Colwall property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we need to consider when buying an extended house in Colwall in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors must have sufficient knowledge of local area issues and any bearing they have with the building. Property Prices will likely be more than prices outside the area as a result of the areas being unspoilt.

Surveyors can be expected to inform you if the property might be so designated and Section I of your Colwall Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by your legal adviser. Unapproved changes to the building may be commented on but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.
