HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Stoke Bishop and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Stoke Bishop property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Stoke Bishop property's condition along with advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding permanent outbuildings)

A Homebuyer Report in Stoke Bishop will include a surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost. To estimate an accurate value estimate your chartered surveyor should use local property market knowledge and other things about the property for instance: desirability of the location. The RICS surveyor will also consider materials used and will make certain key assumptions, for example there are no damaging materials.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

It will be assumed that there is an absence of any expensive legal issues for example there being no outstanding claims. Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancing solicitor.

Further Stoke Bishop assumptions, such as use of communal grounds or the access roads not being in private control, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like intrusive noises or smells, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

House Prices

There is a house in BS9 with an asking price of £401, 985. What factors will surveyor take into account when calculating house prices in Stoke Bishop ?

There is a vast array of things that can impact on house prices, for example local employment opportunities or whether it is near the coast or has a coastal view. You can try to consider prices achieved in the area for similar houses.

The average house price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £395, 485, which is £6, 500 less than the asking price. The average factoring in houses and flats was £342, 622. Badgers Hollow, Church Avenue, Stoke Bishop, Bristol, City Of Bristol, City Of Bristol, BS9 1LD a detached property sold for £325, 000 .

The most cost effective way for you to get an impartial property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as a core component.

A professional qualified surveyor should make a site visit to the property in addition to considering the wealth of area variables that can impact on property values.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls we should be aware of if buying a house in Stoke Bishop near a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors must have knowledge of local area factors and any relation may have on the property and its value. Property values will be more than prices outside the area because of them retaining original features.

Surveyors will inform you whether the building is/might be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Stoke Bishop Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are raised as part of the legal process. Unconsented modifications that do not have Local Authority approval may also be noted in the survey but these are really more a investigated by the lawyer.
