HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Upton Upon Severn and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Upton Upon Severn property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Upton Upon Severn property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect said there is a possibility of a white asbestos toilet cistern at the property. Which types of asbestos are a concern, will this be a hazard and Should we still go ahead with the purchase?

Asbestos is a harmful substance formed from metamorphic rocks. Some types may be in building materials for example garage roofs. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in shed roofs.

All forms are deadly and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to disturb asbestos and professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a Upton Upon Severn HomeBuyer report. Surveyors will note possible asbestos risks and will suggest experts are consulted.

House Prices

We have found a detached house in the centre of WR8 in Upton Upon Severn with an asking price of £259, 189. What things does a Upton Upon Severn chartered surveyor consider when calculating house prices in Upton Upon Severn ?

There are many factors that might affect property values for example the likelihood of getting planning permission to extend or the size of the garden. It is useful to compare with house values achieved in the area for comparable properties.

This means house prices paid in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £236, 389, which is £22, 800 less than the price you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £218, 250. Shieling, Gilberts End, Hanley Castle, Worcester, Malvern Hills, Worcestershire, WR8 0AS a detached property was purchased for £385, 000 .

An impartial way to get a formal property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation by default. Your qualified RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

A professional qualified RICS surveyor will always visit the home in addition to factoring in the multiple area issues that can impact on property values.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled properties create upkeep problems for the buyer? Are there any defects that need to be investigated?

From Spynie Sandstone to Portland Cap Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include efflorescence.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.
