HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Cheddleton and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Cheddleton property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Cheddleton property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The estate agent said subsidence has been worth checking impacting the flat. What can be done to fix subsidence if it is identified?

Movement of the foundations of a house is called subsidence. Buyers in Cheddleton should be aware, however, that there is a difference between subsidence and benign settlement. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed moisture accumulates below ground level. This may result in the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

Merely superficial cracks not caused by subsidence can be filled and repainted. Inside the property, keep an eye out for fresh cracks in brick or plaster.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Place pine, birch and cherry trees, for example, at least 10m away. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.

House Prices

There is a potentially interesting investment property in ST10 in Cheddleton priced at £199, 145. What things will a Cheddleton chartered surveyor consider when estimating house prices in Cheddleton on a RICS valuation ?

There is a vast array of things that can add to or subtract from house prices e.g. the amount of ground rent or the size of bedrooms (single/double). You can try to analyse the prices of house achieved in the area for similar properties.

The average house price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £198, 045, which is £1, 100 less than £199, 145. 32, Churnet Valley Road, Kingsley Holt, Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire Moorlands, Staffordshire, ST10 2BQ a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £197, 000 .

The most reliable way to get an accurate property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as part of the service. A RICS chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation as well as a Reinstatement Cost. To ascertain the property's value the valuer should use local property market knowledge and other factors relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. Surveyors also examine construction type and will use key assumptions e.g. the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. It will be assumed that there is an absence of any major legal problems such as the possibility of legal enquiries revealing legal issue that might affect value. Advice should be sought from your conveyancer.

Further area assumptions, such as use of parking or service connections, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like local Cheddleton industrial considerations, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
