HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Grasmere and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Grasmere property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Grasmere property's state of repair and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Will the Property Survey consider this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a house can be significant. Specific issues include soil movement. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable warping of floorboards, to complete structural failure. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the house will be considered. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

House Prices

There is a property in LA22 in Grasmere with an asking price of £420, 100. What will a Grasmere RICS chartered surveyor evaluate when estimating house prices in Grasmere ?

There are a huge number of issues that can impact on the price of property for instance plumbing problems or the standard of the bathroom/s. It is useful to analyse values recorded in the same area for comparable properties.

This means house prices paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £414, 000, which is £6, 100 less than the amount you are intending to pay and the flat/house average was £368, 417. 8, Stoney Lane, Ambleside, South Lakeland, Cumbria, LA22 9AZ a detached property sold for £555, 000 .

The only way for home buyers to get an accurate house valued is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as standard. Your qualified surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

Other external areas of the property

On the HomeBuyer Report, can you give some examples of a green light rating defects for factors covered in Section E?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. A rating of 'green', or 1, means that the element of the property being investigated is in good condition, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. If a property does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects which do not fit into the other categories. Contact your surveyor if you require more information. Fastener problems would be reported here, for example.
