HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Sherwood and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Sherwood property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Sherwood property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when purchasing a maisonette close to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: inert refuse. No one ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Concerns might include structurally instability. Potential health issues like cancer have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Sherwood will examine any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological database in addition to Nottingham Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

House Prices

I am planning to buy a detached property in NG7, being marketed for £143, 429. What things does the Sherwood chartered surveyor take into account when conducting a home buyers survey ?

There are a great number of factors which could have a bearing on the price of property ranging from kerb appeal to whether it has any outdoor space. It often helps to look at the prices of house registered at the Land Registry for similar properties.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £132, 529, which is £10, 900 less than the amount being asked. The house/flat average was £124, 171. 7, Park Road, Woodthorpe, Nottingham, Gedling, Nottinghamshire, NG5 4HR a detached house sold for £177, 000 .

The most reliable way for you to get a formal house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service. Your chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a building in Sherwood - What should we do about roof repairs?

Local property in otherwise fine condition can be hiding serious roofing woes, like damp. From wind braces to sheathing, the whole roof must be reviewed. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Sherwood, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors in Sherwood will look for a range of signs, including holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a Sherwood roofing specialist a quote for any suggested work. Speak to Raynor Ltd of 33 Larwood Gr, Nottingham, NG5 3JD on 0115-920 2899 for an estimate.
