HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Greasby and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Greasby property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension on the property, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Greasby property's general condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our chartered surveyor look for signs of water damage, or whether flooding has affected other properties?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Financial Times). Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. Flood water can enter a Greasby property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect Greasby property enables the RICS surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the current owner, but this information may not be accurate.

Conservation area

Are there any problems I should check on if intending to buy a converted house in Greasby in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are thousands official conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Your surveyor need to have local knowledge of local considerations and any effect they have on the property and its value. Property values will probably be higher than non conservation area equivalents as a result of them being unspoilt.

Property surveyors are trained to advise if the planned purchase is possibly in a conservation area and Section I of the Greasby Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Unconsented adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may also be noted, however these should be concern for the solicitor.

House Prices

We are shortly to be investing in a detached property in CH61 for £222, 729. What things will a qualified surveyor consider when estimating house prices in Greasby on a property valuation report ?

Any number of issues that might affect the price of property for instance the number of bedrooms or issues with drainage. One method is to benchmark prices values registered at the Land Registry for similar properties.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £205, 829, which is £16, 900 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The average factoring in houses and flats was £183, 220. 8, Acacia Close, Wirral, Wirral, Merseyside, CH49 3QE a detached property sold for £247, 500 .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get an accurate and professional house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default. A chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.
