Home Buyers Survey in Costessey

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Costessey and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Costessey property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Costessey property's general condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled property in Costessey. What potential issues should we be aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Lees Endcliffe Sandstone to Dukes Gritstone, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Stone quarried in the area is common to local properties in Costessey, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify repointing mortar with a suitable material.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Costessey No 1 Quarry, Ringland Lane, Costessey, Norwich, Norfolk, NR8 5BG, quarrying Sand & Gravel, for details. Call 01603 742427 for more information.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Costessey. What directions can a Costessey surveyor offer? Does render make a difference?

Brick-built apartments do benefit from many advantages, but they will also experience numerous defects, such as DPC failure. An issue of particular concern is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls. S C Brickwork & Plastering should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 020 8325 6951 or 19 Balgowan Rd, Beckenham, BR3 4HJ.

Buyers in Costessey should consider that a great deal of variety can be found across Costessey. For example, stretcher bond, the most ubiquitous across England and Wales.

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

House Prices

I am going to acquire a property in NR8. The asking price is £193, 323. What things does a Costessey local surveyor consider when carrying out a Home Survey ?

There is a vast array of things which could have a bearing on the price of property ranging from location of nearby transport links to the quality of the bathroom and fittings. It is useful to set against prices recorded in Costessey for comparable properties.

The average house price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £186, 323 - £7, 000 less than £193, 323. The house/flat average was £183, 990. 12, Stony Grove, Costessey, Norwich, South Norfolk, Norfolk, NR8 5HP a detached home sold for £197, 950 .

The most accurate way for home buyers to get an accurate and professional house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report as standard. A RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme.

A professional RICS chartered surveyor should go to the property as well as factoring in the long list of influences affecting the value of property.
