HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Crowthorne and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Crowthorne property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension on the Crowthorne property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Crowthorne property's general condition as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I intend to acquire a detached property in RG45. The vendor is asking £428, 672. What things does a surveyor consider when carrying out a home buyers survey ?

There is a vast array of things that can add to or subtract from property values from whether correct consents are in place to the number of bedrooms in the property. It is useful to weigh up prices against prices achieved in Crowthorne at the same time for similar houses.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £427, 272, which is £1, 400 less than the amount being asked. The average factoring in houses and flats was £337, 826. 14, The Paddock, Crowthorne, Wokingham, Wokingham, RG45 6HS a detached property was purchased for £299, 950 .

The most accurate way to get an impartial home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as part of the service.

The RICS chartered surveyor should go to the house in addition to allowing for any other influences affecting house prices.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're planning to purchase in Crowthorne. Is there a flood risk, and will the property surveyor investigate flooding, or if other properties have been affected?

The lives of many owners in Crowthorne and across the UK have been seriously affected by flood damage. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a HomeBuyer Report will inform your decision. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a residence, such as via landscaping or paved areas sloping towards the property. The HomeBuyer Report will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Crowthorne, what advice would a surveyor in Crowthorne give for a house constructed with rat-trap bond walls?

Brick buildings show signs of numerous defects, including lack of a damp proof course and spalling. A problem regularly identified is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Talbot Lee of 10 Century St, Newark, NG24 1QP on 01636 704262.

For example, basket weave bonds or header bond may be used in the construction of buildings in Crowthorne, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.
