HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Moreton In Marsh and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Moreton In Marsh property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Moreton In Marsh property's general condition as well as advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a house and the agent has told us that it has been built with Cotswold stone. What should we be particularly aware of, and what does the survey cover?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Defects such as efflorescence affect many stone-walled properties. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to properties, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for the framing of windows or doors. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

House Prices

We are hoping to be purchasing a flat in the centre of GL56 for around the £176, 600 mark. What different issues will your qualified RICS surveyor allow for when valuing house prices in Moreton In Marsh ?

There are a huge number of issues which could positively or negatively affect property values from the legality of extensions to the number of bedrooms in the property. One method is to look at the prices of flat achieved in Moreton In Marsh at the same time for comparable properties. The average flat price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £167, 000, which is £9, 600 less than the asking price. The house/flat average was £388, 837. North View Flats, 3, Blockley Court, Blockley, Moreton-In-Marsh, Cotswold, Gloucestershire, GL56 9BS was purchased for £179, 000 .

The only way to get an independent house valued is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact could wet weather have on our new house in Moreton In Marsh? Will the surveyor report on this? Could damaged rainwater goods lower the property value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the impact rain can have on a home is usually overlooked. If you have only visited the new home in on a sunny day, defects may not have been obvious. This could then result in warped floorboards or beams.

Luckily, this is usually easy to remedy.However, the damage caused, where untreated or poorly maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.
