HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Walderslade and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Walderslade property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Walderslade property's condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Walderslade, and can a Walderslade building survey inquire into flooding damage?

Burst dams, poor drainage and tidal activity can cause flooding, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a property, such as via patio doors. An awareness of characteristics of the Walderslade area likely to affect the property also enables the home surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The home surveyor may ask the agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What directions can you offer for a 40s property constructed with stretcher bond walls?

Brick-constructed structures in Walderslade do benefit from many advantages over timber-built homes, but they can also experience several common problems. These can include frost damage or sulphate attack. An issue of particular concern is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. Douglas J should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01491 576266 or 2 Clarence Rd, Henley-On-Thames, RG9 2DP.

For home purchasers in Walderslade seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like Scottish bond features five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern.

If the Walderslade surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

House Prices

There is a flat close to ME5 with an asking price of £93, 044. What factors will surveyor consider when estimating house prices in Walderslade ?

There are a great number of factors which could have a bearing on the price of property for example the existence of any restrictions over use of the property or the likelihood of development occurring nearby.

The average flat price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £100, 444, which is £7, 400 more than the asking price (£177, 897 was the blended house/flat average). Sultan Mews, Store 6, Sultan Road, Chatham, Medway, Medway, ME5 8BB a leasehold maisonette sold for £120, 000 .

The only way for you to get an accurate and professional property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as standard. Your chartered surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.
