HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Woodside Park and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Woodside Park property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Woodside Park property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The estate agent has said subsidence may be an issue. How could this affect the property, and what can be done to remedy subsidence if it is identified?

Movement of a house on a structural level is called subsidence. Buyers in Woodside Park should be aware, however, that there is a difference between subsidence and benign settlement. The builder will likely return to a new house within a few months in order to make repairs.

Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. In severe weather, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence, but this is not generally an issue in the UK.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed

to stabilise the home, with no underpinning required. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.

House Prices

I would like to acquire a detached property in Woodside Park, LU1. The vendor is asking £251, 075. What considerations will a Woodside Park chartered surveyor evaluate in the process of a RICS valuation ?

Any number of issues that might affect property values from whether alterations have planning permission to whether the property is listed. You can try to weigh up prices against house prices achieved in the area for similar properties.

The average house price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £231, 375, which is £19, 700 less than the price you are intending to pay. 25, Crosslands, Caddington, Luton, Central Bedfordshire, Central Bedfordshire, LU1 4EP a detached property was purchased for £250, 000 .

An impartial way to get an accurate home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as part of the service.

The qualified surveyor will always attend the site in addition to allowing for the large variety of variables affecting property values.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Woodside Park? Will the property surveyor report on this? Where there are problems, what should we do?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However this issue is not given more thought by property buyers. If you have only seen the home in dry weather, defects may not have been obvious.

Luckily, guttering issues are quite easy to fix. If poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
