HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Hunstanton and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Hunstanton property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Hunstanton property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a risk of blue asbestos paper lining in existence at the property. What is asbestos and what are the risks?

Asbestos was not banned until the late 90's so properties built before then may have traces of asbestos. Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous structured mineral. Some types are found in the building materials for example artex.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in the home appliances. Most asbestos was imported from South Africa. Technically all forms are hazardous and might lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a solitary fibre is not deadly.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered however, on no account to displace asbestos. Professional advice must be taken urgently. Professional removal of asbestos is expensive but

must be completed by professionals. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a Hunstanton home survey. They will report on suspected asbestos during the Hunstanton survey and will recommend professional testing.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact could rainfall have on our new house in Hunstanton, and does our property surveyor mention it?

As a frequent surveyor of homes in the region, I find it strange that the effect which wet weather has on buildings is rarely considered properly. For instance, flaking or efflorescence on external walls could mean that the gutters are a cause for concern. Poor drainage can lead to rising damp.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve, if caught early.

House Prices

I intend to buy a detached house in PE36. The asking price is £281, 988. What things will a surveyor allow for during a property valuation report ?

There is a vast array of things which could positively or negatively affect the price of property ranging from the general economy to the number of bedrooms in the property. One method is to put side by side values registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties.

The means house prices registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £302, 288, which is £20, 300 more than the amount you are intending to pay. The combined house/flat average was £253, 770. 29, Sandringham Road, Hunstanton, Kings Lynn And West Norfolk, Norfolk, PE36 5DP a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £448, 000 .

The best way for you to get an accurate property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as standard. A RICS surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme.

The local surveyor will always actually visit the home as well as factoring in the wealth of influences affecting property prices.
