About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Chipping Sodbury

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Chipping Sodbury and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Chipping Sodbury property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Chipping Sodbury property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees e.g legal fees) and how is it calculated?

Homebuyer Reports include an impartial valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. In order to determine the property's value your independent surveyor will combine awareness of the Chipping Sodbury property market and other factors relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. Your Chipping Sodbury surveyor will also consider materials used and will use key assumptions like the building connected to mains services such as electricity.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. It will also be assumed that there are no problematic legal problems e.g. consent for alteration having been given and complied with. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Further Chipping Sodbury conjectures like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to local environmental problems like industrial buildings, which will also be factored in.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a 19th Century farmhouse in Chipping Sodbury. Will upkeep costs be higher?

Some buyers would be interested in owning a home with character. For traditionally-built Chipping Sodbury property, age, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Chipping Sodbury houses constructed with traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for a home in one of Chipping Sodbury's conservation areas, Construction materials, such as stone quarried in the Chipping Sodbury area, may be required. This may mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller. Discuss this with your property surveyor for more information.
