HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Banstead and which would be the cheapest?

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

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

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Banstead property's condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

Is £238, 067 in the right ball park amount to be buying a property in SM7 for and what things does the qualified RICS surveyor evaluate when calculating house prices in Banstead on a Home Survey ?

There is a near endless list of things that can impact on house prices for instance local noise sources or issues with drainage. You can try to set against values achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties. The mean flat price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £222, 267, which is £15, 800 less than the price you are intending to pay. The average factoring in houses and flats was £493, 166. 21, Flat B, High Street, Banstead, Reigate And Banstead, Surrey, SM7 2LJ was purchased for £172, 000 .

The most accurate way for home buyers to get an impartial house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as

an integral component. Your qualified RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

Stone block wall damage

Will a home in Banstead with stone walls create upkeep problems? What should we be particularly aware of?

From Farmington Stone to Plumpton Red Lazonby Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like deteriorating mortar will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Repair advice often includes repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

If you need more assistance, contact a Banstead firm. For example, Cousins D Fireplace Installers, 36 Commonfield Rd, Banstead, SM7 2JZ may help.

Conservation area

Will there be any things I need to be wary of if purchasing a building in Banstead in conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Banstead must have relevant knowledge of relevant local area factors and any connection may have on the building. Property values will probably be enhanced because of conservation areas retaining their original character.

Surveyors are trained to advise if the home is or might be is designated and Section I of a Banstead Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are conducted by your solicitor. Out of keeping changes to the property may also be noted but these are really more a investigated by the lawyer.
