HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Earlswood and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Earlswood property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Earlswood property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Earlswood Home Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Earlswood. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What should we pay attention to during the survey?

This is a common concern for purchasers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. A large number of properties could feature damage to the roof, including. From concrete tiles to tie beams, the roof structure as a whole will be considered. Issues can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a builder from the area for the job itself.

House Prices

There is a potentially interesting investment house in B94 priced at £342, 071. What things does a surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Earlswood on a property valuation report ?

There is a vast array of things that might affect property values for example the number of bedrooms or issues with drainage. It may help to analyse prices recorded in Earlswood for comparable properties.

The means house prices registered in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £335, 571, which is £6, 500 less than the price you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £297, 667. 3, Hazel Grove, Hockley Heath, Solihull, Solihull, West Midlands, B94 6QW a detached house sold for £275, 000 .

The most accurate way to get a formal property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default. Your local surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a house but are worried about an infestation - What advice should we get?

Houses are not usually impacted by serious cases of vermin, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies. Remedies to pests can include traps.RICS guidelines on the issue of vermin are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your RICS surveyor.
