HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in East Riding Villages and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the East Riding Villages property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the East Riding Villages property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a East Riding Villages home and am concerned that the clay soil foundations have suffered some subsidence. Can we expect the East Riding Villages House Survey to mention this, and what defects will be reported on?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem, 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. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a property's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in East Riding Villages, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have,

on the property. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Stone block wall damage

Can property in East Riding Villages built with stone cause problems for a new owner? Which factors should we consider?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of properties in East Riding Villages, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in East Riding Villages should be able to supply local stone.

House Prices

There is a flat in East Riding Villages (HU5) with an asking price of £57, 871. What different issues will your East Riding Villages chartered surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in East Riding Villages ?

Any number of issues which could affect the price of property like any number of structural defects or the likelihood of development occurring nearby. It may help to look at prices achieved in the area for comparable properties. The average flat price recorded in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £48, 071, which is £9, 800 less than the price being asked. The combined house/flat average was £120, 388. 8, Greenfield Garth, Hull, City Of Kingston Upon Hull, City Of Kingston Upon Hull, HU6 7YF recently sold for £144, 000 .

The only way for you to get an accurate house valued is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part. A local surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).
