HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Hockley and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Hockley property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the Hockley property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

I am going to acquire a property in SS9 for around £271, 335. What things does a Hockley surveyor take into account on a survey ?

Any number of issues that can add to or subtract from the price of property from the tenure i.e. freehold or leasehold to the size of bedrooms (single/double). It can help to consider house prices recorded in the same area for comparable properties.

The means house prices registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £263, 835, which is £7, 500 less than the asking price. The average for houses and flats combined was £252, 063. 382C, Rayleigh Road, Leigh-On-Sea, Southend-On-Sea, Southend-On-Sea, SS9 5PT a detached home sold for £65, 000 .

An impartial way for you to get a professional house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes

a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as standard. Your surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about if buying a building proximate to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites take many forms including industrial refuse. No one would want to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Concerns include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane .

Homebuyer reports in Hockley will notice structural issues connected with the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to Rochford Local Authority and advise you .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a cottage and the agent has told us that it has been constructed with Clipsham stone. Are there specific problems to bear in mind?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.
