HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Fordingbridge property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Fordingbridge property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a boundary wall) and what does it include?

Fordingbridge Homebuyer Reports an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the report. To fully consider the property's value your chartered surveyor will use knowledge of Fordingbridge and other things relating to the property for instance: accommodation Surveyors also evaluate construction methods and will use other assumptions, for example the building connected to mains services such as electricity.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Fordingbridge assumptions, such as use of communal grounds or connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like industrial buildings, which will also be factored in.

House Prices

I would like to buy a flat in SP6. It is on the market for £141, 950. What will a Fordingbridge RICS chartered surveyor take into account in the process of a RICS survey ?

There are a great number of factors that can affect property values from whether work needs to be to the property to the architectural style of the property. One method is to weigh up prices against the prices of flat achieved in Fordingbridge at the same time for comparable properties. The mean flat price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £127, 250, which is £14, 700 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The average factoring in houses and flats was £336, 120. Bridge Court, 17, Flat 5, Bridge Street, Fordingbridge, New Forest, Hampshire, SP6 1AH a leasehold flat recently sold for £141, 500 .

An impartial way for home buyers to get an accurate house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as a core component. A local surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

A qualified RICS surveyor should attend the building in addition to factoring in the large variety of things that might affect values.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a cottage built Kentish Rag stone. Which major matters should we consider, and what does the survey cover?

Upkeep costs for stone-built Fordingbridge houses can be higher than for more standard. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Fordingbridge houses, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used in the construction of doors and windows. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.
