HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Stroud and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Stroud property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Stroud property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

Is £65, 651 within the right sort of area price to be buying a property located in GL5 for and what will the RICS surveyor consider when valuing house prices in Stroud ?

A myriad of factors exist that might affect the price of property such as national factors such as interest rates or if there is any evidence of fungal decay. It is useful to set against values achieved in the area for similar flats. The mean flat price completed in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £65, 051, which is £600 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The average factoring in houses and flats was £181, 114. Spinners House, 35, Wesley Court, Stroud, Stroud, Stroud, Gloucestershire, GL5 1DS a new build leasehold flat sold for £50, 000 .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get an accurate home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a formal valuation

as standard. Your RICS surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns I should check on when buying a building in Stroud inside a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by local authorities. Your surveyor must have sufficient knowledge of local area issues and the bearing they have with the property and its value. The price of property is typically greater because of the areas being unspoilt.

Surveyors can be expected to report if the property is or might be is designated and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are conducted during the legal process. Unauthorised adjustments to the property may also be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by your legal representative.

External walls

On a Stroud HomeBuyer Report, what effect will a Condition Rating 1 have on main walls?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention. Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1, but maintenance may still be necessary. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the house or flat. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.

All visible issues relating to the outside elevations and foundations are checked. The damp proof course is also covered under Section E4. Scuppers missing from roof drains, for example, is included in Section E.
