HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Northop and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Northop property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Northop property's state of repair along with advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw that windows in the garage did not line up when we last viewed the flat. What subsidence issues does the Chartered Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes experience some minor cracking. Often, homes in Northop are built with a variety of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high chalk content, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks. In extreme environmental conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence, but this is not generally an issue in the UK.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Maple, lime and horse chestnut trees should planted no closer than 20m to the property itself. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.

Conservation area

Will there be any issues I would need to on guard for if intending to buy a building in Northop inside a conservation area?

There are many thousands of conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by local councils. Surveyors in Northop must have knowledge of relevant local area factors and the connection may have with the building and its value. Property values will be higher which is down to them being largely unspoilt However many conservation areas have fallen into poor condition for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors are trained to tell you if the planned purchase looks to be within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are conducted by your legal representation. Unapproved modifications to the building may be reported in the Northop survey but these are really more a concern for your legal representative.

House Prices

There is a detached property in the centre of CH7 on for £209, 223. What things will a surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in Northop ?

There are many factors that can affect the price of property for instance plumbing problems or if it is near a potential development. It can help to weigh up prices against the prices of house recorded in Northop for similar houses.

The means house prices recorded in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £208, 523, which is £700 less than the amount you are intending to pay. 20B, Mold Road, Mynydd Isa, Mold, Flintshire, Flintshire, CH7 6TD a detached property sold for £199, 950 .

The only way to get an accurate and professional home valued is to get a Homebuyer Report in Northop which includes a professional valuation as part of the service. A RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).
