HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Whalley and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Whalley property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Whalley property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Chimney stacks

In the HomeBuyer Report, what effect can a green light rating have on chimney stacks?

A 'green' condition rating of 1 confirms that no repairs are required. This rating does not, however, mean that no future maintenance is required. Regular upkeep may still be appropriate or even necessary.

Section E elements are reviewed by eye from the ground as necessary. Sections of the flue which are poorly secured is an example.

House Prices

There is a detached house in BB7 on for £296, 883. What will the Whalley surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in Whalley ?

A myriad of factors exist that can affect property values e.g. any number of structural defects or the number of bedrooms in the property. It often helps to weigh up prices against house prices achieved in Whalley at the same time for similar houses.

The average house price registered between July and October in 2012 was £312, 183, which is £15, 300 more than the selling price. The house/flat average was £265, 018. 8, Pendle Drive, Whalley, Clitheroe, Ribble Valley, Lancashire, BB7 9JT a detached house sold for £385, 000 .

The only way to get an impartial property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service. A RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

A chartered surveyor should actually visit the home as well as factoring in the long list of variables affecting property prices.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Flemish bond walls on this Georgian property has deteriorated. What are the possible consequences?

Brick-walled Whalley property can show signs of distinct issues. This could be anything from crumbling mortar to crypto-florescence. Your RICS surveyor would usually include these and suggest potential remedies. A defect requiring immediate attention is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. A local builder should be able to assist. Call R B Brickwork, 57 Long La, Croydon, CR0 7AR on 07769 184924 for a quote for repair work.

E.g. sailor bond or stretcher bond may be used in the construction of property in Whalley.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
