HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Midsomer Norton and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Midsomer Norton property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Midsomer Norton property's state of repair along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I saw a property I want to buy I saw that there were damaged electrical sockets, will the surveyor report on the electrics?

When carrying out a Building Survey in Midsomer Norton your surveyor will typically add detail on the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in an unsafe state of repair. The RICS surveyor is expected to focus on possible problems relating to things like checking the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Reporting on any evidence of any recent PIR conducted by an electrician should form part of the survey.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a house with a converted attic in Midsomer Norton , and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What does the Midsomer Norton surveyor check when the house is surveyed?

This is frequently addressed by property surveyors. Houses across Midsomer Norton could feature damage to the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. fascias, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Midsomer Norton, but it is a health and safety necessity. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a builder from the area a quote for any suggested work.

House Prices

There is a flat in BA3 - Midsomer Norton priced at £338, 600. What will a Midsomer Norton surveyor consider when estimating house prices in Midsomer Norton ?

There are a huge number of issues that can impact on house prices such as the amount of ground rent payable or the location and proximity of nearby schools. One method is to consider flat values achieved in the nearby area for similar flats. The average flat price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £330, 000, which is £8, 600 less than the asking price. The average factoring in houses and flats was £216, 326. Coppers Corner, High Street, Chewton Mendip, Radstock, Mendip, Somerset, BA3 4LJ was purchased for £330, 000 .

The most cost effective way for you to get an impartial home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as standard. Your local surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

The qualified RICS surveyor should attend the building as well as allowing for any other location related influences affecting house prices.
