HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Saxilby and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Saxilby property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations on the property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Saxilby property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

I am going to purchase a detached property in LN1. The vendor is asking £175, 770. What considerations will a surveyor take into account on a RICS survey ?

There are a great number of factors that can impact on the price of property from the tenure to the home having hard to change bad taste parts. As an indicator, one can try to set against the prices of house recorded in the same area for comparable properties.

The means house prices registered in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £171, 770, which is £4, 000 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £168, 461. 5, The Rowans, Saxilby, Lincoln, West Lindsey, Lincolnshire, LN1 2SP a detached property sold for £242, 500 .

In order for home buyers to get an impartial home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report in Saxilby which includes a formal valuation as part of the service. A surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

A RICS surveyor will always attend the property in addition to factoring in the wealth of area influences that have a bearing on property values.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a home and the agent has confirmed that it has been partially constructed with Slate. Which related issues should we consider?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include penetrating damp. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Saxilby are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, though the advent of Portland cement made lime mortar. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Saxilby should be able to supply local stone.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Roc Oil (UK) Ltd, High Street, Saxilby, Lincoln, Lincolnshire, LN1 2JQ, which quarries Oil, for details. Call 01522 704580 for more information.

Window frame

For the Saxilby HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of Condition rating 3 defects for 'E5 - Windows' ?

One example issue could be missing drip caps on windows. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the impact on the property individual defects may have. Severe defects impacting the residence are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents.
