HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Hellesdon and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

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

If you intend to make any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Hellesdon property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

House Prices

I am planning to acquire a property in Hellesdon, NR6. The vendor is asking £176, 824. What different issues will your Hellesdon RICS chartered surveyor consider on a RICS valuation ?

Any number of issues that might affect the price of property from the potential for development to its proximity to other factors sought after amenities. One method is to put side by side house values achieved in Hellesdon at the same time for similar properties.

This means house prices recorded between July and October in 2012 was £160, 524, which is £16, 300 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The house/flat average was £155, 127. 40, Bramble Avenue, Norwich, Broadland, Norfolk, NR6 6LN a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £195, 000 .

The most accurate way for home buyers to get an accurate property valued is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The estate agent said that the had been a problem with damp. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What aspects of the roof will be checked?

Hellesdon properties that are otherwise ideal will suffer issues with the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. gables. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Hellesdon, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors in Hellesdon will look for a range of signs, including a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

An expensive quote for roofing jobs (such as re-covering asphalt) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a builder in Hellesdon for the job itself.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should I pay more for a full structural survey, as opposed to a Homebuyer Report when carrying out due diligence on a maisonette in Hellesdon?

Building Survey has taken over the Full Structural Survey following its renaming recently by RICS. We recommend that you have the Building Survey for the maisonette described. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need if investigating a post fifties unmodified Hellesdon maisonette of conventional building materials.

You should be aware of a few limitations exist with any survey as a surveyor is not in a position to force or open up the fabric of the maisonette or look into the internal condition of chimneys.
