Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Walton Le Dale, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the bedrooms. Do we need a chartered surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Remedies to insect infestation can include use of insecticides. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

House Prices

There is a flat located in PR2 with an asking price of £112, 267. What factors will local surveyor consider when calculating house prices in Walton Le Dale ?

There are a great number of factors that can add to or subtract from the price of property such as whether any associated planning permissions come with the property or whether the property is on an adopted road. As an indicator, one can try to benchmark selling prices achieved in the nearby area for similar properties. The average flat price registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £110, 667, which is £1, 600 less than the selling price. The house/flat average was £154, 816. 17, Dorchester Avenue, Walton Le Dale, Preston, South Ribble, Lancashire, PR5 4PE a leasehold flat recently sold for £107, 000 .
