HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Heanor and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Heanor property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Heanor property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Heanor Survey Quote via our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Other external areas of the property

In a Heanor HomeBuyer Report what impact can a Condition rating 3 have on 'E9 - Other' ?

An example of this is a sagging conservatory floor surface. Miscellaneous external elements are including here that do not fit elsewhere in Section E. Your surveyor can provide more details if required.

Severe defects impacting the house or flat are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. In some cases, such a rating may indicate further expert opinion is needed before an accurate statement can be given. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. If a house or flat does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there may be a danger of asbestos wallpaper present in the flat. Is this a major concern?

Properties erected earlier than the mid 80's will contain any number of materials containing asbestos. Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous structured mineral formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials such as fireplace.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in fire doors. Most of it was sourced from the US.

All forms are deadly and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a one fibre is not fatal.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to disturb asbestos and expert advice must be taken without delay. Getting rid of asbestos can be costly but must be conducted by professionals.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will note potential asbestos and will recommend professional testing.

House Prices

I am planning to purchase a detached house in DE75. It is on the market for £124, 683. What things does a Heanor qualified RICS surveyor take into account on a valuation ?

There are a great number of factors that might affect property values from noise to the quality of the bathroom and fittings. You can try to put side by side values achieved in the area for similar houses.

The average house price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £117, 183, which is £7, 500 less than the selling price. 12, Sovereign Way, Heanor, Amber Valley, Derbyshire, DE75 7SB a detached property was purchased for £230, 000 .

In order for home buyers to get a formal home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default. Your RICS chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).
