HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Fishponds and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Fishponds property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Fishponds property's state of repair along with information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On the HomeBuyer Report what impact will a green light rating have on 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

For a Fishponds residential property, one example could be exposed nailing on the roof. Section E2 defects are checked, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. If it is not possible to properly access this area for inspection (if, for example, the property is a flat), the surveyor will make note of this in their report. Green (condition rating 1) is the best possible assessment, and confirms that this part of the house or flat is in a good state, but regular upkeep may still be required. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, with a minimum of technical jargon. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will insects affect the purchase price of a property in Fishponds - What can we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Remedies to an infestation can include chemical treatment. If you strongly suspect an issue with thrips, or any pest, speak to your chartered surveyor

House Prices

There is a flat close to good transport links in Fishponds (BS16) on with a local agent for £141, 864. What will the qualified RICS surveyor allow for when valuing house prices in Fishponds ?

There are many factors that can affect the price of property for instance the quality of nearby schools or the location and proximity of nearby schools. It often helps to compare with prices registered at the Land Registry for similar flats. The average flat price registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £117, 064, which is £24, 800 less than the amount you are paying. The house/flat average was £173, 605. 8, First Floor Flat, Straits Parade, Bristol, Bristol, Avon, BS16 2LA was purchased for £28, 000 .

In order for you to get a formal home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as a core component. Your qualified RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

The chartered surveyor will always attend the building in addition to factoring in the wealth of items that might affect property values.
