HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Ludlow and which one would be cheaper?

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

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

If you intend to do any significant alterations on the Ludlow property, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Ludlow property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I intend to acquire a detached property in Ludlow (SY8) for around £225, 971. What will the Ludlow surveyor consider on a property valuation report ?

There are a huge number of issues which could have a bearing on property values ranging from existence of building regulations for modifications to overall area pricing. As an indicator, one can try to put side by side house values recorded in the same area for comparable properties.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £216, 171, which is £9, 800 less than the price you are intending to pay. The average for houses and flats combined was £205, 236. Bridge House, Brimfield, Ludlow, Herefordshire, Herefordshire, SY8 4NG a detached house sold for £470, 000 .

The only way for you to get an independent home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as a core component. A chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns I would need to be wary of if purchasing a flat in Ludlow near a conservation area, particularly in relation to property values?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by local councils. Your surveyor need to possess local knowledge of local factors and any relation they have on the building. Values will probably be higher because of the areas being unspoilt.

Surveyors are expected tell you whether the building might be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are raised during the conveyancing process. Unsympathetic developments to the property will also be commented on but these are really more a concern for your lawyer. Lanyon Bowdler are a local firm situated at Unit 12 The Business Quarter, Shropshire, Shropshire, SY8 1FD will be able to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01584 872333

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should I commission a full structural survey prior to buying a converted, Victorian garden maisonette in Ludlow?

Full Structural Surveys have been renamed by RICS as Building Surveys. If you are buying an altered Ludlow maisonette like a property in poor condition house, it is now the most suitable property survey. A Building Survey sets out in depth and often crucial professional advice in relation to the houses standard of construction and repair in conjunction with any defects after a thorough inspection. There are several limitations with the survey insofar as a surveyor will not be able to (unless owners consent provided) open up the fabric of the of the Ludlow house, an example being the removing roof space contents. Permanent external structures or buildings should be checked out.
