Home Buyers Survey in Bamber Bridge

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Bamber Bridge and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Bamber Bridge property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications on the property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Bamber Bridge property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to pay attention to when purchasing an old building? What consequences will the structure's architecture have on maintenance?

Some buyers would be interested in owning a home with character. A property's age, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Bamber Bridge structures built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be difficult to upkeep. You should bear in mind that expert knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of Bamber Bridge's conservation areas.

House Prices

There is a potential buy to let detached property close to good transport links in PR5 for £151, 156. What factors will local surveyor allow for when valuing house prices in Bamber Bridge ?

There are many factors which could have a bearing on the price of property such as the square footage or the condition of shared common parts. It may help to weigh up prices against house prices recorded in Bamber Bridge for similar houses.

The average house price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £129, 756, which is £21, 400 less than the amount being asked. The average for houses and flats was £129, 267. 4, Poulton Crescent, Hoghton, Preston, Preston, Lancashire, PR5 0LY a detached home sold for £200, 000 .

The only way for home buyers to get a formal property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an integral component. Your RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

The surveyor will always attend the building in addition to allowing for all other location factors that can affect the value of property.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a property in Bamber Bridge, does the residential surveyor consider any water damage, or whether flooding has affected nearby homes?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record. Both house purchasers and home owners in areas in danger of flooding are right to be worried.

Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the Bamber Bridge home in question is in danger. Flood water can enter a house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. correctly installed window and door frames. The chartered surveyor may ask the residents if the house has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there may be a risk of asbestos sealant present in the flat. What is asbestos and is there a danger?

Asbestos is a dangerous substance of several naturally occurring materials. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials for example toilet cistern. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in textured coatings. Technically all forms are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to move asbestos. Professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a Bamber Bridge home survey. Your Bamber Bridge surveyor should mention suspected asbestos and should advise accordingly.
