HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Eccleshall and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Eccleshall property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Eccleshall property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice get a Eccleshall Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the home buyers survey check for signs of water damage, or whether flooding has affected the garden?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing waterways can all result in extensive floods, and property purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. The Environment Agency maintain a flood warning service, with regular updated risk assessments, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. The house survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The RICS surveyor may ask the estate agent if the house has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

House Prices

There is a detached house in ST21 for £275, 826. What things will a qualified RICS surveyor consider when calculating house prices in Eccleshall ?

There is a vast array of things that can add to or subtract from property values such as the total square meterage of the home or the quality of the bathroom and fittings. It is useful to consider prices recorded in the same area for comparable properties.

The average house price recorded in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £264, 626, which is £11, 200 less than the selling price. Oak Tree Views, Newcastle Road, Eccleshall, Stafford, Stafford, Staffordshire, ST21 6GA a detached property sold for £355, 000 .

An impartial way for you to get an independent home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as standard.

A professional RICS surveyor will always visit the site in addition to considering the variety of location related influences affecting the value of property.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled residential property. Are there specific factors to consider?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Brown Woodkirk Sandstone to Purbeck Royal Bed Limestone. Defects affecting stone-built properties in Eccleshall can vary, delaminated or cracked paintwork being relatively common.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than walls of irregular construction. This is a generalisation however, as limestone or sandstone-built and regularly-coursed walls can decay rapidly when exposed to more extreme environmental conditions or pollution. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Repair advice often includes clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds. Purchasers renovating properties in Eccleshall should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. To source stone quarried in Eccleshall, you can contact local suppliers.
