HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Crook and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Crook property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Crook property's condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I am going to acquire a detached house in Crook (DH7). The asking price is £142, 407. What considerations will a Crook RICS surveyor allow for on a property valuation report ?

There is a vast array of things that can affect property values from view to the amount of accommodation it offers. It is useful to compare with house values achieved in the area for similar houses.

The means house prices registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £128, 107, which is £14, 300 less than the asking price. 38, Kipling Way, Crook, County Durham, County Durham, DL15 9AJ a detached home sold for £173, 245 .

An impartial way to get a professional property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part. A RICS surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

A surveyor will always go to the house as well as considering the myriad of area issues that can impact on house prices.

Conservation area

Are there any problems I should check out if planning to buy a converted flat in Crook in conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Your surveyor must possess relevant knowledge of local issues and the connection they have on the home and its value. Property Prices are generally enhanced because of the areas retaining their original character.

Surveyors are trained to tell you whether the location looks like it may be in a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are raised by your legal adviser. Unauthorised changes to the property may be commented on, however these should be concern for your legal representative. Hewitts are a local firm situated at 1 Elliott Street, County Durham, County Durham, DL15 8QH and should be prepared to help. Tel: 01388 762466

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Crook? Does the Crook Building Survey cover this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Crook property, with subsidence being a common example. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable cracked plaster, to complete structural failure. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. 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.
