Home Buyers Survey in Charlbury

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Charlbury and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Charlbury property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Charlbury property's condition along with advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I want to acquire a property in OX7. It is on the market for £449, 944. What considerations will a Charlbury qualified surveyor evaluate when conducting a RICS survey ?

There are a great number of factors that can affect house prices ranging from anti social neighbours to overall area pricing. One method is to put side by side house prices achieved in Charlbury at the same time for comparable properties.

This means house prices completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £429, 144, which is £20, 800 less than £449, 944. New Inn Cottage, Nether Westcote, Chipping Norton, Cotswold, Gloucestershire, OX7 6SD a detached house sold for £464, 999 .

The most reliable way for you to get a formal property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default. A chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

Window frame

On a Charlbury HomeBuyer Report, what could a a green light rating mean for windows?

Green (condition rating 1) is the best possible assessment, and confirms that this part of the residence is in a good state. However, frequent maintenance could still be needed.

One example would be a window frame which has been installed backwards. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we would be advised to consider when purchasing a flat in Charlbury in conservation area ?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by local authorities. Your surveyor must have knowledge of local factors and the bearing they have on the property. Property Prices tends to be inflated because of them retaining original features.

Property surveyors can be expected to report if the planned purchase looks to be so designated and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Out of keeping modifications to the building should be advised, however these should be concern for your lawyer.
