Home Buyers Survey in Ely

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Ely and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Ely property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Ely property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A neighbour suggested subsidence may be worth checking. What possible solutions are to available to resolve this?

Movement of a structure on a structural level is called subsidence. However, subsidence should be distinguished from the normal settlement of a home. Generally, a builder will return to a new structure after six months in order to make repairs.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the external walls of the property., or the widening of existing cracks, may indicate subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include fresh cracks in brick or plaster.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home, with no underpinning required. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.

House Prices

I am going to acquire a detached property in CB6. The vendor is asking £235, 683. What factors will Ely qualified surveyor evaluate during a home buyers survey ?

Any number of issues which could have a bearing on property values ranging from the tenure i.e. freehold or leasehold to the size of bedrooms (single/double). It may help to analyse the prices of house achieved in Ely at the same time for comparable properties.

The average house price recorded at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £207, 183, which is £28, 500 less than the selling price and the flat/house average was £201, 061. 78A, High Street, Sutton, Ely, East Cambridgeshire, Cambridgeshire, CB6 2NW a detached home sold for £367, 500 .

An impartial way to get an independent home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as a core component. A local surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a home in Ely. What advice would the Ely house surveyor give in their report?

Property in Ely in otherwise fine condition may be exposed to roofing woes. From fascias to ceiling joists, all aspects of the roof will be taken into account. The surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Ely, but it is a health and safety necessity. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a builder in Ely for the job itself.
