HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Blackwell and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Blackwell property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension on the Blackwell property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Blackwell property's condition as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Blackwell properties at risk, and does a home buyers survey look for flooding?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: ITN). If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a house survey will inform your decision. It is strongly recommended that action is taken, before water damage ruins both the walls and floors, and contents, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a house survey if the building surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property is at risk.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented to say there may be an asbestos boiler affecting the flat. Why would there be asbestos and can it be treated?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous material. Some types are found in the building materials e.g. sealant.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good tensile strength qualities and it may be found in roof tiles. Technically all forms (including white) are deadly and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken never to remove asbestos. Professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will mention potential asbestos risks and should offer advice.

House Prices

Is £115, 713 a reasonable amount to pay for a property in DE55 for. What considerations will a Blackwell qualified RICS surveyor evaluate when carrying out a valuation ?

There are a great number of factors that might affect property values like the amount of ground rent payable or defects in the lease. It is useful to set against house prices achieved in Blackwell at the same time for similar properties.

The average house price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £100, 713, which is £15, 000 less than the asking price. 11, Pennine Close, Newton, Alfreton, Bolsover, Derbyshire, DE55 5UD a detached house sold for £151, 000 .

The best way for you to get an impartial home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as a core component. Your RICS chartered surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

A qualified RICS surveyor should actually visit the house as well as considering any other items that might affect the value of property.
