HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Oakhill and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Oakhill property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension on the property, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Oakhill property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic has created issues for us in the past, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Will access to the attic be an issue?

This is a common concern for homebuyers. Many properties can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing problems. From the clay tiles to the ridge flashing, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of badly installed felting.

The expense of asbestos cement removal, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.

House Prices

There is a house located in BA3 on for £300, 297. What will a RICS surveyor take into account when calculating house prices in Oakhill ?

There are a great number of factors which could have a bearing on house prices like the state of the roof or whether there are any conservation area infringements. It can help to set against house values recorded in Oakhill for comparable properties.

This means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £290, 697, which is £9, 600 less than the amount being asked. Karunda, Anchor Road, Coleford, Radstock, Mendip, Somerset, BA3 5PG a detached property sold for £310, 000 .

In order for home buyers to get a professional home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as a core component. Your qualified surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

Damage resulting from flooding

We're buying in Oakhill. Is there a flood risk, and will the property surveyor inquire into possible flooding, or if nearby homes have been affected?

Overflowing rivers, rain and insufficient drainage can cause water damage caused by flooding, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for residences in flood-risk areas. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. An awareness of characteristics of the Oakhill area likely to affect the Oakhill house also enables the property surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The property surveyor may ask the estate agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Fortunately, no recent flood alerts were found for Oakhill, according to the Environment Agency.
