Home Buyers Survey in Newbury

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Newbury and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Newbury property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Newbury property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Newbury home and am quite worried that there is a danger of subsidence. Does the House Survey cover this?

Whether a property was built in 1701 or 2001, factors as varied as weather or fungal decay can create costs and inconvenience for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in numerous issues. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Newbury property's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like immediately acting to remove standing water around a property, as a result of heavy rainfall or flooding. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

House Prices

I would like to buy a house in RG20. The vendor is asking £364, 212. What will a surveyor evaluate when carrying out a property valuation report ?

There is a vast array of things that can impact on property values ranging from noise to whether the garden is overlooked. You can try to weigh up prices against house values achieved in the nearby area for similar properties.

The means house prices registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £335, 812, which is £28, 400 less than the asking price (£287, 732 was the blended house/flat average). Naseby House, 2, Enborne Lodge Lane, Enborne, Newbury, West Berkshire, West Berkshire, RG14 6RH a detached property was purchased for £675, 000 .

The only way for you to get an accurate house valued is to commission a Homebuyer Report in Newbury which includes a professional valuation as standard. Your qualified surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).
