Which Home Buyers Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Braunstone

    The RICS Homebuyer Report should be selected when you are purchasing a home constructed from conventional building materials such as brick and tile, in reasonable order and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Braunstone

    A Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Braunstone) will also be conducted by a MRICS or FRICS accredited surveyor and is more thorough. Choose this option when buying a non standard e.g. thatched properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Braunstone

    This is a professional surveyor valuation of the property. This is usually chosen by cash purchasers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Braunstone and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Braunstone property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Braunstone property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a detached house in the centre of LE3 with an asking price of £154, 787. What things will a local surveyor take into account when calculating house prices in Braunstone ?

There are a huge number of issues that might affect the price of property such as the number of bedrooms or whether there is a flying freehold. It may help to weigh up prices against prices achieved in Braunstone at the same time for similar properties.

This means house prices recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £148, 387, which is £6, 400 less than the asking price. 11, Plough Close, Leicester Forest East, Leicester, Blaby, Leicestershire, LE3 3QR a detached house sold for £235, 000 .

The only way to get an independent house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as an inclusive part.

A qualified RICS surveyor will visit the property in addition to allowing for the long list of area issues that can impact on property values.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a property. What impact will the home's structure have on repairs?

Older construction methods and materials can concern buyers. Buildings built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to upkeep. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can end up costing more than initially budgeted.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations cause difficulties? I am buying a house in Braunstone. Can a Braunstone Building Survey consider this?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including compression of layers of the sub-soil. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! A Braunstone surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Parcels of waterlogged soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
