HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Nechells and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Nechells property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the Nechells property, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Nechells property's general condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a building survey search for signs of flood damage, or if other houses on the street have been affected?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, offer suggestions for better flood defences.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect property enables the surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before.

The surveyor will usually recommend that the property purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Traditionally built property

I am buying an older barn conversion in Nechells. Will the age of the house be a problem?

Vernacular architecture can often be problematic, and Property employing traditional methods can be expensive to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. If the house you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact your RICS surveyor for more information.

House Prices

We are hoping to be buying a property in Nechells (B8). The vendor is asking £98, 500. What things does a RICS surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in Nechells ?

There is a vast array of things that can affect house prices, for example the existence of damp or whether the property is sold under probate. It is useful to put side by side prices achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties. The mean flat price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £70, 000, which is £28, 500 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The combined house/flat average was £80, 136. 10, Reginald Road, Saltley, Birmingham, Birmingham, West Midlands, B8 1LX was purchased for £70, 000 .

The only way for home buyers to get a formal home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as a core component. Your surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).
