HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in St Ives and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the St Ives property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the St Ives property's state of repair along with information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any problems I would be advised to look into if purchasing a flat in St Ives inside a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by local councils.

A Building Surveyors must have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area factors and the effect may have with the building. Property values will be inflated which is down to conservation areas being preserved.

RICS surveyors are trained to note whether the location looks like it may be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a St Ives Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are carried out during the legal process. Unsympathetic adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted, however these should be concern for your conveyancer. Winters Legal Llp are based in 3 Sheep Market, Huntingdonshire, Cambridgeshire, PE27 5AJ should be prepared to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01480 377 377

House Prices

I want to acquire a house in TR26 for around £353, 192. What considerations will a St Ives local surveyor take into account in the process of a professional valuation ?

There are a great number of factors that can affect the price of property ranging from the legality of extensions to the quality of the bathroom and fittings. You can try to benchmark prices house prices achieved in the area for comparable properties.

This means house prices paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £331, 392, which is £21, 800 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The average factoring in houses and flats was £333, 705. The Bosuns Nest, Carthew Way, St Ives, Penwith, Cornwall, TR26 1RJ a detached property was purchased for £140, 000 .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get an independent home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default.

The local surveyor should go to the property as well as factoring in all other influences that can affect the value of property.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we investigate rainwater goods? Where there is damage, what should we do?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact damp weather can have on houses is not given the attention it deserves by property buyers. For instance, corroded downspouts could mean that the gutters are blocked. If you have suspicions, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Whether buying in St Ives or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, if caught early. Where this is not cared for, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.
