HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Woolacombe property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Woolacombe property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a property in EX34 - Woolacombe for £388, 757. What will the Woolacombe chartered surveyor evaluate when valuing house prices in Woolacombe ?

There are a great number of factors which could positively or negatively affect property values e.g. the existence of damp or the internal layout. It may help to weigh up prices against house prices achieved in Woolacombe at the same time for similar properties.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £372, 857, which is £15, 900 less than £388, 757. The average for houses and flats was £307, 767. 1 Long Beach, Springfield Road, Woolacombe, North Devon, Devon, EX34 7BX a detached house sold for £210, 000 .

The most accurate way to get an independent property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as a core component. Your surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

A professional RICS surveyor should actually visit the building in addition to considering the wealth of things that have a bearing on values.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Surveyor take into account on a smooth stucco regency home in Woolacombe.

Stucco is actually dense render. Typically stucco render is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) that sets to a smooth and even finish. The effect is very aesthetic and is often found on Regency properties. Stucco is often problematic and Woolacombe Homebuyer Reports can show issues such as when movement of the wall results in cracks. Other issues may result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-applying problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a property in Woolacombe - What does a Woolacombe house surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

This is a common concern for Woolacombe buyers who know how costly roofing work can be. Houses across Woolacombe can be blighted by roof maintenance problems. From the purlins to the wind braces, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Factors like a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a builder in Woolacombe can provide one.
