HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Dunchurch and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Dunchurch property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension on the Dunchurch property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Dunchurch property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations create problems? I am buying a home in Dunchurch. What should we expect a Dunchurch Property Survey to include?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Dunchurch house, with soil compaction or compression and considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content being relatively common. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Dunchurch house's foundations, forcing them inward. A Dunchurch surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

House Prices

We are wanting to buying a detached house in Dunchurch (CV23) for around £364, 313. What different issues will your Dunchurch surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in Dunchurch ?

There are a great number of factors which could affect property values like the number of bedrooms or the direction the house faces. It may help to weigh up prices against the prices of house achieved in the area for similar properties.

This means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £335, 413, which is £28, 900 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The Malt House, Hayway Lane, Broadwell, Rugby, Rugby, Warwickshire, CV23 8HH a detached house sold for £600, 000 .

An impartial way to get a formal property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a professional valuation as a core component. Your local surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

Roof defects identified during a survey

The next-door neighbour warned us that access to the roofing could be an issue. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What should we investigate as part of the survey?

Properties in Dunchurch in good condition could feature roof maintenance problems. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ceiling joists to clay tiles, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

An expensive quote for roofing jobs (such as asbestos cement removal) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a local contractor can provide one. Speak to Rugby Roofing of 12 Finmere, Rugby, CV21 1RT on 07967 165548 to request a quote.
