HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Holton le Clay and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Holton le Clay property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Holton le Clay property's condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Holton le Clay that I wish to buy.

Stucco is actually a kind of render. Typically it is applied to red brick that sets to a very smooth surface. Stucco is highly beautiful and is was often applied to Regency homes. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors can reveal issues such as when it is exposed to constant driving rain which gets saturated and thus prone to frost damage. Other potential problems may result from the heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-applying Stucco problems may be difficult as the skills are getting harder to find.

House Prices

Is £187, 900 in the right area amount to pay for a property in Holton le Clay in DN36 for and what factors will surveyor take into account when calculating house prices in Holton le Clay ?

There are a huge number of issues which could positively or negatively affect property values like local noise sources or whether the home is landlocked. It often helps to put side by side values registered at the Land Registry for similar properties.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £176, 000, which is £11, 900 less than the amount you are paying. The house/flat average was £168, 430. 34, Pinfold Lane, Holton Le Clay, Grimsby, East Lindsey, Lincolnshire, DN36 5DN a detached property was purchased for £175, 000 .

The most accurate way to get a professional house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as a core component. Your RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

The qualified surveyor will always attend the property as well as allowing for the variety of things that can affect the value of property.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about insects. What advice should we get?

Homes will often be free of major pests. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected home may not always be easy to identify. As an example, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include use of poison or removal or excision of affected timber. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
