HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Northwich and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Northwich property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Northwich property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

House Prices

I want to buy a property in CW8 for an asking price of £211, 248. What things does a surveyor evaluate on a RICS valuation ?

There are a great number of factors which could affect the price of property ranging from noise to general regional pricing. You can try to analyse house values recorded in the same area for comparable properties.

The means house prices registered between July and October in 2012 was £184, 948, which is £26, 300 less than the selling price. The house/flat average was £182, 578. 7, Blenheim Close, Northwich, Cheshire West And Chester, Cheshire West And Chester, CW9 8FB a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £247, 500 .

The best way for home buyers to get a formal home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default. Your local surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Can the Northwich HomeBuyer Report consider this, and what defects will be reported on?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Issues range from soil compaction or compression to movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. For example, minor wall cracks in the living room may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Steps like taking care not to let plant life, including some as bushes and trees, take root close to the property can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about pests. What should we do?

Pests like mites may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Northwich. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies. Remedies to insect infestation can include professional cleaning or removal of infected furniture.
