HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Lickey End and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Lickey End property is a flat or maisonette, 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 thinking about whether to carry out an extension on the property, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give a thorough analysis of the Lickey End property's condition and it includes information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have been informed that clay soil can create problems for homes in Lickey End. Will my Lickey End Home Buyers Survey look into this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Lickey End home. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including severe changes in the water table level. In Lickey End's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. Visible results may be anything from widening cracks to sticking window frames. There is a real benefit in booking a Lickey End surveyor to carry out your HomeBuyer Report, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

House Prices

We are planning to be acquiring a detached property in B60 for an asking price of £181, 524. What factors will local surveyor evaluate when valuing house prices in Lickey End ?

Any number of issues that can affect the price of property e.g. any number of structural defects or the direction the house faces. You can try to look at house values recorded in the same area for similar properties.

The means house prices recorded at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £191, 624, which is £10, 100 more than the amount being asked. The combined house/flat average was £189, 357. 12, Counting House Way, Stoke Heath, Bromsgrove, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, B60 3QD a detached property sold for £189, 950 .

An impartial way to get a formal property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service. Your chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

Damage resulting from flooding

We are planning to buy a house in Lickey End, does the house surveyor check for signs of flooding?

Overflowing rivers, rain and insufficient drainage could all cause major water damage caused by flooding, and house purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. In addition, the survey report may recommend maintenance.An awareness of characteristics of the Lickey End area likely to affect the house also enables the residential surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The residential surveyor will usually recommend that the house purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.
