HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Mere property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Mere property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

I want to purchase a property in SP8 for an asking price of £214, 767. What different issues will your surveyor take into account when carrying out a RICS survey ?

There are a great number of factors that can add to or subtract from property values ranging from the tenure i.e. freehold or leasehold to the number and size of bedrooms at the home. As an indicator, one can try to weigh up prices against house values recorded in the same area for comparable properties.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £220, 567, which is £5, 800 more than the asking price. The combined house/flat average was £213, 052. 2, Swallowfields, Gillingham, North Dorset, Dorset, SP8 4US a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £330, 000 .

The best way for you to get a professional property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report in Mere which includes a Property Valuation Report as standard.

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor report on the condition or the safety of the gas heaters?

Your will visually look at the accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) at the home, in addition to gas associated fixtures like fixed external ventilation hearths. External fittings or covers will not however be taken off. The gas system will not be tested at all. Gas is potentially fatal and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

Damage resulting from flooding

When planning to buy in Mere, should we be worried about a flood risk, and will the HomeBuyer Report consider indications of flood damage?

The lives of many residents in Mere and across the UK have suffered as a result of flooding damage. Both property purchasers and home owners in areas at risk of flooding are right to be worried. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Less expensive preventative measures include air brick covers. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Near Mere, the River Camel from Camelford to Polbrock including Penrose Bridge, Wenford, Helland Bridge, Dunmere & Sewage Treatment Works at Camelford & Nanstallon status was recently updated by the Environment Agency.
