HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Godstone and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Godstone property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Godstone property's general condition along with advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

Is £254, 167 a reasonable amount to be buying a property close to good transport links in RH9 for and What things will a Godstone surveyor take into account when valuing house prices in Godstone ?

There are a huge number of issues that might affect property values e.g. whether alterations have planning permission or whether the property is on an adopted road. It is useful to weigh up prices against flat values achieved in Godstone at the same time for comparable properties. The average flat price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £234, 667, which is £19, 500 less than the amount being asked. The combined house/flat average was £316, 500. 90, Easter Way, South Godstone, Godstone, Tandridge, Surrey, RH9 8HH a leasehold apartment recently sold for £159, 000 .

The most cost effective way for you to get an impartial home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as standard. Your RICS chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

A RICS surveyor should actually visit the building in addition to allowing for the multiple area factors that might affect property values.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Godstone. Can a HomeBuyer Report look for any flooding?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m residences are in danger of water damage caused by flooding, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. In addition, the HomeBuyer Report may advise on urgent repairs.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a property in Godstone lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood risk alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a property and the vendor has suggested that it has been constructed with York stone. Are there specific problems to bear in mind, and what will the survey reveal?

Upkeep fees for stone-built houses in Godstone can be higher than for more standard. Issues including cracks affect many stone-walled houses in Godstone. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to houses in Godstone, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used in the construction of doors and windows.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. North Park Quarry, North Park Lane, Godstone, Surrey, RH9 8ND, quarrying Silica Sand, for details. Call 01883 731271 for more information.

If you a undertaking repairs, and require matching stone, speak to a Godstone specialist, such as Fires & Flues of Woodcote Ho, Eastbourne Rd, South Godstone, Godstone, RH9 8EZ.
