HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Bishops Cleeve and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Bishops Cleeve property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Bishops Cleeve property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor look at the state of the gas mains supply?

Your surveyor will visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the gas pipe route for instance, as well as gas related gas fittings in the home e.g. the possibility of asbestos. Fittings won't be taken off. Gas is potentially hazardous, if you have any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

House Prices

Is £251, 037 a good amount to be buying a detached property in GL52 in Bishops Cleeve for and what factors will Bishops Cleeve qualified RICS surveyor consider in the process of a valuation ?

The average factoring in houses and flats was £225, 993. 41A, Station Road, Bishops Cleeve, Cheltenham, Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, GL52 8HH a detached property sold for £325, 000 .

The only way for home buyers to get an independent property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report in Bishops Cleeve which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as a core component. Your RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Bishops Cleeve property and am worried about the implications of clay soil. Will a Home Survey look into this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Bishops Cleeve buyers. Specific issues include considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a house's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like checking that the downpipe drains correctly. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
