Home Buyers Survey in Ovingham

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Ovingham and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Ovingham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Ovingham property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it calculated?

Ovingham Homebuyer Reports a surveyor valuation and also a reinstatement cost. To properly appraise the property's value your chartered surveyor will factor in area knowledge as well as other factors about the property e.g. size. Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and will use key assumptions, for example there being no significant defects. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings e.g. carpets. RICS valuations assume that there is an absence of any problematic legal issues for example no troublesome covenants. These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions, like the access roads not being in private control, are made as well as any significant Ovingham environmental concerns like nearby railway tracks, which will also be factored in.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

House Prices

We have found a property in NE42 with an asking price of £215, 751. What things does the surveyor consider when calculating house prices in Ovingham during a professional valuation ?

There are many factors which could positively or negatively affect property values such as plumbing problems or the local crime statistics. As an indicator, one can try to put side by side values achieved in Ovingham at the same time for similar houses.

The average house price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £194, 751, which is £21, 000 less than the amount you are intending to pay and the flat/house average was £186, 847. 10, Springfield, Ovington, Prudhoe, Northumberland, Northumberland, NE42 6EH a detached home sold for £300, 000 .

The best way for home buyers to get an impartial home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as an inclusive part. Your qualified RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

Substandard guttering

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Ovingham residential property what impact will a Condition Rating 1 have on 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

External areas covered by E3 are inspected visually. E3 does not cover internal parts of the water system, such as possible defects such as blockages in sewer pipes. Undersized downspouts is an example.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give property buyers a clear understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention. A rating of 1 is the highest, meaning that this aspect of the home being surveyed does not need urgent attention. Elements of Section E marked as condition rating 1 may however still require regular maintenance.
