HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Bucklesham and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Bucklesham property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Bucklesham property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Bucklesham property and am a little concerned that the foundations are at risk. Does the Bucklesham Home Buyers Survey cover this?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a house's foundations can create difficulties. Issues range from compression of layers of the sub-soil to consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. In Bucklesham's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. 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. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Bucklesham, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. 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.

House Prices

I intend to acquire a property in IP10. It is on the market for £241, 044. What factors will surveyor evaluate when conducting a RICS valuation ?

There are a great number of factors which could positively or negatively affect the price of property ranging from existence of building regulations for modifications to the modernity of the kitchen. It can help to analyse the prices of house achieved in Bucklesham at the same time for similar houses.

The average house price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £262, 144, which is £21, 100 more than the asking price. High Farm, Bent Ridge, Brightwell, Ipswich, Suffolk Coastal, Suffolk, IP10 0AZ a detached house sold for £500, 000 .

The best way to get a professional house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as part of the service. Your qualified surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we need to check on if planning to buy a property in Bucklesham in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local council. Bucklesham surveyors are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local considerations and the relation may have on the home. House prices are generally more than prices outside the area which is down to the areas being in good order. However many areas are falling into a poor state for example - out of keeping extensions

Surveyors can be expected to note if the house is/might be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Bucklesham Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are raised by your conveyancer. Unconsented adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may be commented on, however these should be investigated by your legal representative.
