HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Woking and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Woking property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Woking property's general condition and it includes advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a house near to a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. domestic rubbish disposal. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Risks might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health concerns like gut problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Woking will notice structural issues connected with the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission conveyancing searches of the British Geological database and Woking (borough) Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

House Prices

We are intend to be acquiring a flat in Woking, GU22 for around the £203, 330 mark. What different issues will your Woking RICS chartered surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Woking on a Home Survey ?

Any number of issues which could have a bearing on property values from the length of lease to the size of bedrooms (single/double). You can try to consider flat prices achieved in Woking at the same time for comparable properties. The mean flat price recorded at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £208, 930, which is £5, 600 more than £203, 330 - the amount you buying for and the flat/house average was £366, 245. Northfleet Lodge, 6, Flat 12A, Claremont Avenue, Woking, Woking, Surrey, GU22 7RL sold for £229, 995 .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get a professional home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an integral component. A surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

The RICS chartered surveyor will always actually visit the home as well as considering the wealth of area variables that might affect house prices.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled homes create upkeep problems for the buyer? Which major matters should we consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

From Grinshill Sandstone to Mountcharles Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Woking buildings, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for elements such as the junctions of external walls. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.
