Do you need a Home Buyers Survey? Which one is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Gainsborough

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice when buying a home constructed from conventional building materials such as tile & brick, not dilapidated and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Gainsborough

    The Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Gainsborough) is also carried out by a MRICS/FRICS accredited surveyor but is more thorough. Choose this option when buying a non standard e.g. stone wall or older houses.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Gainsborough

    This is an independent valuation of the property. It is usually chosen by mortgage free purchasers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Gainsborough and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Gainsborough property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Gainsborough property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there may be a risk of asbestos pipe insulation in the building. What is asbestos, is it dangerous and does the home survey in Gainsborough report on it?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous structured mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials for example boards around radiators.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent sound absorption qualities and it may be found in artex.

All forms (including white) are dangerous and might lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful not to disturb it and expert advice should be sought without delay. Never attempt to disturb it yourself. Gainsborough Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will note potential asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.

House Prices

I am planning to acquire a house in DN10. It is on the market for £145, 305. What things does the Gainsborough surveyor take into account when carrying out a valuation ?

Any number of issues which could positively or negatively affect house prices ranging from the amount of service charges payable to the quality of the bathroom and fittings. It often helps to compare with house values achieved in Gainsborough at the same time for comparable properties.

The average house price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £127, 405, which is £17, 900 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The house/flat average was £123, 034. Woodville, 12, Ashdown Way, Misterton, Doncaster, Bassetlaw, Nottinghamshire, DN10 4BP a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £95, 000 .

An impartial way to get an accurate property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a formal valuation as standard. Your RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a structure with a converted attic in Gainsborough - Will access to the attic be something to worry about?

Gainsborough houses that are otherwise ideal could feature roofing woes. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ceiling joists to sheathing. Factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Roof maintenance can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal. Speak to Kirk G of 10 Beech Av, Gainsborough, DN21 1EY on 01427 615892 for an estimate.
