Home Buyers Survey in Newton Abbot

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Newton Abbot and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Newton Abbot property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Newton Abbot property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a property in Newton Abbot, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What should we do about roof repairs?

Homes in Newton Abbot with no other major issues can often hide difficulties with the roof, for example, sagging beams. From clay tiles to roof battens, the whole roof will be taken into account. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by badly installed felting.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible. Call Flatroofing Specialist of 52 Gladstone Pl, Newton Abbot, TQ122AW on 0845-272 5261 for a quote.

House Prices

Is £194, 529 in the right area amount to pay for a detached property located in TQ12 for and what different issues will your surveyor evaluate when estimating house prices in Newton Abbot ?

A myriad of factors exist which could affect the price of property such as national factors such as interest rates or whether the property is on an adopted road. It is useful to set against values recorded in the same area for comparable properties.

The average house price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £209, 129, which is £14, 600 more than the price being asked (£193, 946 was the blended house/flat average). 5, Moorpark Road, Kingskerswell, Newton Abbot, Teignbridge, Devon, TQ12 5GA a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £93, 000 .

An impartial way to get an independent property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as a core component.

A qualified surveyor will visit the home in addition to considering the myriad of items that might affect property prices.

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor look at the safety of the gas mains supply?

The surveyor will locate and visually examine any easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as the routing of any gas pipes where relevant, as well as gas related fixtures such as fireplaces. A Newton Abbot qualified surveyor will not remove external fittings and won't run any tests whatsoever on the gas system. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it is potentially fatal and if there are any worries relating to gas installations at all, , call a gas safe engineer.

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it necessary to upgrade to full structural survey prior to acquiring a derelict Edwardian converted apartment in Newton Abbot?

Building Survey has taken over the Structural Survey following its renaming in 2010 by RICS. One should select the Building Survey in relation to the apartment referred to. A HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if buying a mid 20th century of later unmodified home made out of typical construction materials and methods i.e. brick and tile.

There are some restrictions exist with any survey as a qualified RICS surveyor will not be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the fabric of the building nor can they inspect under floor (unless accessible).
