HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Poulton Le Fylde and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Poulton Le Fylde property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does offer comprehensive details of the Poulton Le Fylde property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco house in Poulton Le Fylde.

Stucco is in fact just a form of render. Normally stucco render is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth and attractive finish. It is very grand in appearance and is often found on Victorian homes. it can be problematic and Surveyors sometimes report potentially expensive to remedy problems such as when movement of the underlying wall causes cracks

Another example of problems may result from the pressure from heavy loads above such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Re-covering problems with stucco may be dear as the skills are getting rarer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My husband spotted signs of bugs in the bathroom - What should we do?

Pests like mites may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Poulton Le Fylde. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Treatment for insect infestation may include chemical treatment. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

House Prices

Is £110, 079 a reasonable price to buy a flat in FY6 for and what will the surveyor evaluate when conducting a survey ?

There are many factors which could positively or negatively affect house prices for instance the square footage or overall area pricing. You can try to look at prices registered at the Land Registry for similar flats. The average flat price registered at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £91, 179, which is £18, 900 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The house/flat average was £171, 796. Greenbank, Flat 8, Argyle Road, Poulton-Le-Fylde, Wyre, Lancashire, FY6 7EW a leasehold flat recently sold for £46, 250 .

The most reliable way to get a formal home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as standard. Your local surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

A professional surveyor will attend the home in addition to allowing for the wealth of location variables that can affect the value of property.
