HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Duston and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Duston property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the Duston property, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Duston property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our house surveyor look for flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected the garden?

Heavy rain, clogged drains and overflowing streams could all cause major flooding. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a property survey will inform your decision. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a Duston property, such as via landscaping or paved areas sloping towards the property.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a Duston property lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The house surveyor may ask the occupier if the Duston property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

House Prices

Is £114, 298 a good price to pay for a property in NN5 for and What things will a qualified RICS surveyor evaluate when estimating house prices in Duston on a home buyers survey ?

There are many factors which could affect the price of property for instance the state of repair of the property or whether the property is sold under probate. It is useful to set against values achieved in the area for comparable properties. The average flat price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £108, 798, which is £5, 500 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The average factoring in houses and flats was £182, 824. 2, Flat, Squirrel Lane, Northampton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, NN5 6JH recently sold for £175, 000 .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get an accurate and professional home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service. Your qualified RICS surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

A RICS surveyor will always attend the building as well as factoring in the large variety of area variables that have a bearing on values.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about an infestation. Is a Full Structural Survey advisable?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. An affected house may not always be easy to identify, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take.
