HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Colne property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Colne property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

Is £88, 488 a good price to pay for a flat in BB9 for and what different issues will your Colne RICS surveyor evaluate in the process of a property valuation report ?

There is a vast array of things which could have a bearing on house prices, for example noise from flight paths or the location and proximity of nearby schools. It often helps to consider prices registered at the Land Registry for similar properties. The average flat price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £81, 688, which is £6, 800 less than the amount you are paying. The house/flat average was £135, 862. 10A, Keighley Road, Colne, Colne, Pendle, Lancashire, BB8 0JL a freehold Flat sold for £165, 000 .

In order for you to get an accurate house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation by default. Your surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

A professional RICS surveyor will always go to the home in addition to considering the wealth of location related influences that might affect property prices.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Colne RICS surveyor check for indications of water damage, or whether flooding has affected other properties?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Colne house is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and home buyers and owners are understandably concerned. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a property, such as via window frames. An awareness of characteristics of the Colne area likely to affect the property also enables the residential surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a cottage partially constructed Forest of Dean stone. What problems must we watch out for?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Defects such as algae affect many stone-walled property.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

If you a undertaking repairs, and require matching stone, get in touch with a local firm, including Bridge Street Stone Ltd, Knotts La, Colne, BB8 8AA (Tel: 01282 860571).
