Do you need a Home Survey ? Which one is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Avonmouth

    The RICS Homebuyer Report is the right choice when purchasing a home constructed from conventional building materials such as tile and brick, in reasonable repair and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Avonmouth

    A RICS Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Avonmouth) will also be conducted by a RICS chartered surveyor but is more exhaustive. Choose this for non standard e.g. granite wall buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Avonmouth

    This is an impartial valuation . This report is usually chosen by cash buyers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Avonmouth and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Avonmouth property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension on the property, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give comprehensive details of the Avonmouth property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have learnt that clay soil can create issues for structures in Avonmouth. Can your Avonmouth Building Survey investigate this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a property will have an impact. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including sub-soil shrinkage. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a building. For example, small cracks in the bedroom floor may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. There is a real benefit in booking a Avonmouth surveyor to carry out your HomeBuyer Report, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand.

Conservation area

Are there any problems I need to be aware of if buying an extended house in Avonmouth in conservation area ?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local authority. Surveyors in Avonmouth are required by RICS to have local knowledge of local area factors and any relation they have with the home and its value. The price of property will likely be higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to them being largely unspoilt

Surveyors can be expected to note if the planned purchase looks to be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are conducted by your solicitor. Unapproved changes that do not have Local Authority approval will also be commented on but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser. Devereux and Co are a local firm situated at 28 High Street, Bristol, Bristol, BS11 0DL might be able to tell you what to look out for. Tel:

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying an older cottage in Avonmouth. What effect will the design have on repairs?

Some buyers would like to own a unique or characterful property. For houses in Avonmouth built before the 20th Century, age, however, can sometimes be an issue. Avonmouth homes employing traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can result in longer-term maintenance obligations.
