HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Church Stretton and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Church Stretton property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Church Stretton property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor has said subsidence may be an issue. What subsidence-related matters will the RICS Surveyor look into?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be fixed. Heave is less common, and is caused by the death or removal of a large shrub or tree and its roots cease absorbing moisture from the ground.

Many homes develop superficial cracks in a wall or floor, simply as a result of settlement. In extreme temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. This is not usually a concern in England and Wales however.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Using large concrete pins, placed beneath current foundations and extending deep into the ground, underpinning is expensive, totalling £1000s, but it can be very effective. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.

Gas flame

Will a local surveyor give details on the serviceability of the gas heaters?

Your will visually survey the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the meter is in an escape route for instance, in addition to gas associated fixtures, for instance flue/chimney maintenance. Should there be any external fittings they won't however be taken off. Most people are aware that gas is potentially deadly, should you have any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

House Prices

I intend to purchase a detached property in Church Stretton (SY6). It is on the market for £315, 930. What things does a Church Stretton RICS surveyor take into account in the process of a property valuation report ?

There are many factors which could have a bearing on house prices ranging from existence of building regulations for modifications to the condition of shared common parts. You can try to look at house prices achieved in the area for similar properties.

The average house price paid in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £298, 130, which is £17, 800 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £240, 013.
