HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Fernhill Heath and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Fernhill Heath property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Fernhill Heath property's condition along with an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What suggestions can a Fernhill Heath surveyor make for homes built from rat-trap bond walls?

Brick-built Fernhill Heath structures feature several advantages in comparison to other forms of building. Unfortunately, they also suffer from distinct issues. These can include lack of a damp proof course or defective mortar. Your Fernhill Heath surveyor should report on these. A problem regularly identified is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. For more information, contact a local builder, Holland A L of 124 Ryeland Rd, Duston, Northampton, NN5 6XN on 01604 757564.

Brick-constructed property can be found across the UK, leading to a great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture. For example, stretcher bond, the most ubiquitous across England and Wales.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an old coast house. What impact will the property's box frame structure have on upkeep?

A property's age can worry purchasers. Homes built using traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to repair. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Construction materials, such as stone quarried in the Fernhill Heath area, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property. This may make asking the seller for more detail about their current maintenance regime a good idea.

House Prices

There is a property close to WR7 for £100, 950. What things will a surveyor evaluate when calculating house prices in Fernhill Heath on a Home Survey ?

There is a near endless list of things that might affect property values for example whether any associated planning permissions come with the property or the standard of the bathroom/s. It may help to put side by side flat prices achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties. The mean flat price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £95, 250, which is £5, 700 less than the amount you are paying. The average factoring in houses and flats was £222, 160. 15, Hock Coppice, Lyppard Bourne, Worcester, Worcester, Worcestershire, WR4 0PB a leasehold maisonette sold for £103, 000 .

The only way to get an impartial house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default.

The RICS surveyor will attend the site as well as allowing for the large variety of location factors that can affect property values.
