HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Thorne and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Thorne property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Thorne property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rain an issue in Thorne? Could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which damp weather has on property is not given the attention it deserves. Signs that drainage systems are blocked include streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering. Blocked rainwater goods can result in staining of wallpaper and damp.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously, unless they are not maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

House Prices

I am planning to acquire a property in DN8. It is on the market for £121, 784. What different issues will your Thorne surveyor consider when carrying out a professional valuation ?

There are a huge number of issues which could affect property values ranging from location of nearby transport links to whether there is a flying freehold. It is useful to put side by side house values achieved in Thorne at the same time for similar properties.

The average house price paid between July and October in 2012 was £107, 384, which is £14, 400 less than the amount you are paying and the flat/house average was £106, 630. 5, Merend Close, Sandtoft, Doncaster, North Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire, DN8 5TH a detached house sold for £249, 950 .

The best way for you to get an accurate and professional house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation by default. Your RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

A professional qualified RICS surveyor should attend the site as well as allowing for the large variety of area variables that can impact on the value of property.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould brings up bad memories for us. What advice would the surveyor in Thorne give in their report?

Questions like this are often asked of surveyors by purchasers who are aware that property can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer problems like poor insulation. From gables to ceiling joists, every element of the roof will be taken into account. Factors like badly installed felting are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

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. A roofing specialist with good feedback can provide a quote. Call Aspect Roof Maintenance of 2 Norwood Road, Dunscroft, Doncaster, DN7 4AB on 01302 638591 for details.
