HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Doncaster and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Doncaster property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Doncaster property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Doncaster Home Survey Quote on our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should we go for a full structural survey prior to investing in an abandoned thirties top floor flat in Doncaster?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as the Building Survey. It is now the best choice when purchasing an unusual property e.g. a flat in poor condition in Doncaster. The formal report gives important information in relation to the flats construction materials in conjunction with any technical details a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building. Additionally flats usually make it harder to survey the building, and your appointed surveyor will only survey the actual flat the surveyor may provide detail on shared parts of the property for example commonly accessible roof spaces.

House Prices

I want to purchase a house in DN5 for around £109, 305. What things does a Doncaster qualified surveyor allow for during a RICS survey ?

There is a vast array of things that can add to or subtract from the price of property from living on flood plain to the standard of the bathroom/s. You can try to benchmark prices house prices recorded in the same area for similar houses.

The means house prices recorded in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £104, 905, which is £4, 400 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £104, 185. Richmond House, Tennyson Avenue, Sprotbrough, Doncaster, Doncaster, South Yorkshire, DN5 8EL a detached house sold for £66, 000 .

The best way to get an accurate house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as a core component.

A RICS surveyor should visit the house in addition to factoring in the wealth of issues affecting the value of property.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a residence in Doncaster, does the residential surveyor check possible water damage, or if the garden have been affected?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Financial Times). Both buyers and home owners in areas at risk of flooding are right to be worried. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a home, such as via loose patio doors. The Building Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the property owner or occupier, but this information may not be accurate.
