HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Kelsall and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Kelsall property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Kelsall property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Kelsall Home Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What consequence does clay soil have on a home's foundations? Does the Home Survey cover this?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a property's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. A Kelsall surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly.

House Prices

I am planning to purchase a property in Kelsall (CH3), being marketed for £249, 023. What things does a Kelsall local surveyor evaluate during a RICS survey ?

There are many factors that can impact on the price of property ranging from the general economy to defects in the lease. It can help to compare with house values achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties.

This means house prices paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £246, 923, which is £2, 100 less than the asking price. 63, High Street, Tarvin, Chester, Cheshire West And Chester, Cheshire West And Chester, CH3 8EE a detached property sold for £249, 950 .

In order for home buyers to get a professional home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as standard. A RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

The qualified RICS surveyor will always attend the site as well as allowing for the long list of area variables that might affect property values.

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any benefits to upgrade to a full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report if buying a un-loved cottage?

Although frequently described as Structural Surveys by many agents and buyers, they have actually been superseded by Building Surveys A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need if investigating a post fifties unmodified Kelsall house built out of conventional construction materials. When buying a modified house, for example a period house in Kelsall - this is the correct choice of home survey to commission. Around 3 days following a thorough site survey of all accessible areas, a formal report is emailed and posted to the purchaser setting out in depth and important details about the construction materials used on the home. There are a few limitations with any residential survey because the surveyor is not in a position to force or open up the fabric of the Kelsall house for example removing loft contents.
