HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Wombourne and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Wombourne property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Wombourne property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

External walls

On a Wombourne HomeBuyer Report, what effect will a Condition Rating 1 have on main walls?

Condition rating one indicates that no repairs are necessary. However, frequent maintenance could still be needed.

A fairly common example may be a suspected lack of sufficient lateral support for a wall. All visible issues relating to the outside elevations and foundations are checked. Observations on the Damp Proof Course are also reported here.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the mid-century home we are planning to lease it appeared that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system - does a Wombourne survey go into detail on the electrical system?

When preparing a Wombourne Home Survey the RICS surveyor will mention the state of the electrics if it appears that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state. This should include a general (i.e. without undoing fittings) inspection view of any revealed sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. on top of concerns such as inspecting the category of the electrical fittings in bathrooms or checking the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Verifying the location of the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the building will usually form part of the survey in Wombourne.

The IEE suggest that a periodic test be conducted every ten years (or every 5 if renting out).

House Prices

Is £214, 701 the right sort of price to pay for a house in Wombourne in WV5 for and what will a local surveyor evaluate when calculating house prices in Wombourne ?

The average factoring in houses and flats was £188, 447. 8, Silverwood, Wombourne, Wolverhampton, South Staffordshire, Staffordshire, WV5 8AB a detached home sold for £288, 000 .

The best way for you to get a professional property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as standard. Your chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).
