HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Pembroke and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Pembroke property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Pembroke property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick walls on this home in Pembroke might need repairs. What are the possible consequences? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Pembroke apartments with brick walls can indicate various issues and defects. These can include weathering or signs of movement. Where relevant, these will be discussed in the survey report, with directions for remedy. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. Daybell S may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 41 Balderton La, Coddington, Newark, NG24 2QD or 01636 702197.

Buyers in Pembroke should consider that a range of courses arrangements and colours are found in many homes built in this country. One example is rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We spotted the driveway surface is broken and uneven when we last viewed the flat. Is this a serious danger, and what can be done to remedy subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Subsidence and settlement are often confused. Settlement does occur in more modern homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. Their weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, this should quickly settle. Generally, a builder will return to a new home within a few months so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Soil on sloping ground is not as stable as that flat ground and may become unstable and begin to slide downward. Inside the house, keep an eye out for doors and windows that are more difficult to open.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Underpinning involves holes being dug 1 metre long and around 1.5 metres deep, along all affected sections of wall, and just beneath the present foundations. Reinforcement bars and concrete are then inserted into these pits to support the structure, as the rest of the foundations are dug out and similarly filled in with concrete. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.

House Prices

My wife and I are going to be investing in a house in Pembroke, SA71 for around the £121, 390 mark. What factors will surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Pembroke ?

Any number of issues which could positively or negatively affect property values ranging from proximity to transport to overall area pricing. One method is to set against house prices achieved in the area for comparable properties.

The average house price recorded between July and October in 2012 was £140, 290, which is £18, 900 more than the price you are intending to pay. The combined house/flat average was £133, 165. Riverside House, The Parade, Pembroke, Pembrokeshire, Pembrokeshire, SA71 4LD a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £112, 500 .

The only way for home buyers to get an accurate house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation by default.

A professional RICS surveyor will always visit the house as well as considering any other area influences that can impact on the value of property.
