HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Ringwood and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ringwood property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Ringwood property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a cottage and the seller has told us that it has been constructed with Darley Dale stone. What should we be particularly aware of, and what will the survey reveal?

Buyers of a Grade I listed building should consider that upkeep respects the original fabric of the property. This is enforced by the council. Issues including delaminated or cracked paintwork affect many stone-walled houses.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated

with a non-breathable material. Maintenance tips include repointing mortar with a suitable material.

Purchasers renovating houses should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. To source stone quarried in Ringwood, you can contact local suppliers.

House Prices

I intend to acquire a detached property in Ringwood, BH24. The vendor is asking £376, 474. What things will a Ringwood RICS surveyor take into account when carrying out a RICS survey ?

There are a great number of factors that can impact on property values ranging from the general economy to defects in the lease. It often helps to put side by side values achieved in Ringwood at the same time for similar houses.

This means house prices completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £362, 574, which is £13, 900 less than the asking price. The average factoring in houses and flats was £339, 455. 14, Malmesbury Road, St Leonards, Ringwood, East Dorset, Dorset, BH24 2QL a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £300, 000 .

The only way for you to get an accurate property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as an inclusive part.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about vermin on the road - Do we need a surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This issue should be taken seriously. An affected home may not always be easy to identify. As an example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include chemical treatment and removal of infected furniture.
