HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Valley property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Valley property's condition as well as information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Valley House Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for brick maintenance tips - can a Valley surveyor assist? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-constructed converted property feature several advantages. However, they can also show signs of both minor and serious issues, ranging from crumbling mortar to frost damage. Where relevant, these will be discussed in the survey report, with advice on the consequences were they to go untreated. One serious matter is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Ridley R J, Eddrid House/Springwell Rd, Wrekenton, Gateshead, NE9 7AA on 0191-487 0001 for a quote for repair work.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface). The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.

House Prices

There is a detached property in LL65 for £153, 671. What things does the Valley surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Valley ?

There is a near endless list of things that can affect house prices for instance whether there are any restrictive covenants or the quality of the bathroom and fittings. It may help to weigh up prices against values achieved in Valley at the same time for similar properties.

The average house price recorded in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £142, 671, which is £11, 000 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. Gwelfor, Beach Road, Gorad, Holyhead, Isle Of Anglesey, Isle Of Anglesey, LL65 3BL a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £87, 000 .

The best way to get an impartial property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a formal valuation as an inclusive part. A chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

A professional surveyor should visit the building in addition to factoring in any other issues that can impact on house prices.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a concern of asbestos boards around windows being found in the home. Is this a major concern and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous material formed from metamorphic rocks. Some types are found in the building materials for example artex. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in the home appliances. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are ultimately deadly and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken never to disturb it. Professional advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. Surveyors will note possible asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.
