HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Downham Market and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Downham Market property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Downham Market property's state of repair along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I am going to buy a house in Downham Market (PE33) for £179, 493. What will the Downham Market qualified RICS surveyor consider on a valuation ?

There is a vast array of things that can add to or subtract from house prices ranging from the potential for development to whether there are any conservation area infringements. It may help to put side by side prices registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties.

This means house prices paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £177, 693, which is £1, 800 less than the price you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £171, 100. The Old Chapel, High Street, Stoke Ferry, Kings Lynn, Kings Lynn And West Norfolk, Norfolk, PE33 9SF a detached home sold for £250, 000 .

An impartial way for you to get an accurate and professional property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation

as an inclusive part. Your RICS chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact could damp weather have on a home, and does our property surveyor mention it? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that rain and the effect it can have on buildings in Downham Market are not given the attention it deserves by house purchasers. If you have visited the house in on a dry day, issues may have been hidden. Blocked rainwater goods can result in hazardous mould.

Luckily, this is usually easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. If left untreated, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a boundary wall) and what will it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Downham Market building will include an impartial valuation and will also include a "reinstatement cost" included in the cost of the survey. To properly appraise the valuation your surveyor will relate to knowledge of Downham Market and other considerations relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. The RICS surveyor will also consider style of architecture and use key assumptions, for example there are no hazardous materials.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area conjectures, such as access to a flat or services, are made in addition to local environmental problems like Downham Market planning proposals (e.g flight path), also being considered.
