HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Purfleet and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Purfleet property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations on the property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Purfleet property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a property in RM15 on for £207, 631. What things does the Purfleet surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Purfleet ?

There is a vast array of things that can add to or subtract from the price of property such as the history of the property (e.g does it have a murky past) or whether the home is landlocked. You can try to compare with prices recorded in Purfleet for similar properties.

The average house price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £182, 031, which is £25, 600 less than the asking price. The house/flat average was £171, 083. 2, Aveley Close, Aveley, South Ockendon, Thurrock, Thurrock, RM15 4AB a detached property was purchased for £240, 000 .

The most accurate way for home buyers to get an independent property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report as an inclusive part.

A surveyor will actually visit the house as well as factoring in the large variety of area items that might affect property prices.

Stone block wall damage

Can York stone-built structures be difficult to repair. What should we look in to?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Portland Hard Blue Limestone to Dukes Gritstone. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Purfleet should be able to supply local stone.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Crawley Depot, Ews New Goods Yard, Gatwick Road, Crawley, West Sussex, Rh10 9Re Purfleet Depot, Jorgens Road, Purfleet, Essex, RM19 1UA, which quarries Crushed Rock, for details.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a Purfleet property but are worried about pests - What advice should we get?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected house may not always be easy to identify.

For example, woodworm can be extremely destructive, but fortunately their 'tunnels' in timber and wood furniture are usually quite easy to spot. Treatment for vermin may include professional cleaning. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.
