HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Totterdown and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Totterdown property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give you comprehensive details of the Totterdown property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Totterdown Homebuyers Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Gas flame

Does a qualified RICS surveyor look into the serviceability of the gas installations?

A chartered surveyor will visually survey the accessible parts of the system. This will include gas (and oil heaters) at the property, as well as gas related fixtures for example - chimney breasts or flues. A Totterdown surveyor won't actually remove the external fittings or housings and will not run any tests on the system. Of course, gas is potentially hazardous, if you have any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an older converted barn in Totterdown. What impact will the cladding have on upkeep?

For houses in Totterdown built before the 20th Century, age can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Totterdown homes built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be challenging to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of , for example, a Grade II listed house. This may mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller. If the residence you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact your Totterdown surveyor for more information.

House Prices

We are intend to be acquiring a house in Totterdown, BS3 for around the £171, 409 mark. What will the qualified surveyor take into account when calculating house prices in Totterdown ?

There are a huge number of issues that can affect house prices ranging from location of nearby transport links to the modernity of the kitchen. As an indicator, one can try to put side by side prices registered at the Land Registry for similar houses.

The means house prices paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £185, 809, which is £14, 400 more than the amount you are paying (£159, 949 was the blended house/flat average). 13, Holbeach Way, Bristol, City Of Bristol, City Of Bristol, BS14 0UE a detached house sold for £368, 000 .

The best way for home buyers to get an impartial home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part. A RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.
