Which property survey is the correct choice for my property purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Woodborough

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice when purchasing a home built from conventional materials i.e. tile and brick, in reasonable order and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Woodborough

    The Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Woodborough) will also be carried out by a MRICS or FRICS chartered surveyor but is more detailed. Opt for this when buying a non standard property such as stone slab roof or older homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Woodborough and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Woodborough property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Woodborough property's condition along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a 1960-built property in Woodborough and saw evidence of cracks along one external wall. What can be done to remedy subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a house and its foundations. Subsidence and settlement are often confused. Settlement does happen in recently built houses, and is rarely a cause for concern. Their weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, but this should settle after a short while.

There are a number of factors capable of causing subsidence to Woodborough homes. Collapsed drains can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include sticking doors or windows.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed.

Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a building survey inquire into flood damage?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. The Environment Agency maintain a flood alert service, with regular updated risk assessments. The survey report may also, where appropriate, advise on urgent repairs.The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a house lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The house surveyor will usually recommend that the purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

House Prices

We have found a detached property located in NG14 - Woodborough priced at £183, 536. What things does the qualified RICS surveyor evaluate when calculating house prices in Woodborough on a property valuation report ?

There is a vast array of things which could affect property values for example the existence of damp or whether the property is sold under probate. It often helps to benchmark prices house prices achieved in the nearby area for similar properties.

The means house prices recorded between July and October in 2012 was £182, 736 - £800 less than £183, 536. The average factoring in houses and flats was £181, 857. 26, Sunningdale Drive, Woodborough, Nottingham, Gedling, Nottinghamshire, NG14 6EQ a detached property sold for £245, 000 .
