Which Home Buyers Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Milnthorpe

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice if planning to buy a home constructed from conventional building materials i.e. tile & brick, in reasonable order and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Milnthorpe

    A Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Milnthorpe) will also be conducted by a MRICS/FRICS accredited surveyor but is more thorough. Opt for this for non standard property such as cellared or older houses.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    This is an impartial valuation of the property. It is typically chosen by mortgage free buyers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Milnthorpe and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Milnthorpe property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Milnthorpe property's condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I spend a bit more on full structural survey prior to buying a modified eighties converted flat in Milnthorpe?

The Full Structural Survey is now reclassified as a Building Survey. If you are buying an unconventional home such as a tatty flat in Milnthorpe, this is now the right choice of home survey to go for. Usually within 2 to 3 days after an exhaustive inspection of the inside and outside of the main building, a report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) is delivered to you summarising any frequently critical advice on the standard of construction and repair of the flat. There are certain limitations with a Building Survey because a qualified RICS surveyor cannot, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the fabric of the of the Milnthorpe property e.g. removing the contents of cupboards. Also flats add complexity. A surveyor is only able to survey the flat itself, though the surveyor may advise on shared parts like for example common parts. For a table containing a survey comparison see here.

House Prices

There is a house located in LA7 for £204, 333. What things does the Milnthorpe chartered surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in Milnthorpe on a property valuation report ?

There are many factors which could positively or negatively affect the price of property for example the amount of ground rent payable or whether the home is landlocked. You can try to benchmark prices values achieved in the area for similar properties.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £229, 833, which is £25, 500 more than the amount you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £212, 682. Cedar Cottage, 19, Harmony Hill, Milnthorpe, South Lakeland, Cumbria, LA7 7QA a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £249, 000 .

The most reliable way to get a formal property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as standard.

A professional chartered surveyor will always attend the site in addition to allowing for the large variety of issues that might affect the value of property.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented that there is some brown asbestos sealant concealed in the house. What are the issues with asbestos, what are the remedial options and does the HomeBuyer report cover this?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials such as fireplace. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in fire doors. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are dangerous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to move it and expert advice must be taken urgently. Never attempt to handle it yourself.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos during the survey. Your Milnthorpe surveyor should note possible asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.
