Home Buyers Survey in Beacon Hill

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Beacon Hill and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Beacon Hill property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give a thorough analysis of the Beacon Hill property's condition along with information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Defective door frame

In the HomeBuyer Report, what impact will a an amber light rating have on outside doors?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. As buyers in Beacon Hill are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however. All doors leading outside are checked if keys are present, but they cannot otherwise be forced open. In general, the security offer by these doors will be reported on. A rusting metal door frame is an example.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Another resident of the building said that dry rot had been a concern. Will access to the loft be time consuming to arrange?

This is often asked by house purchasers who know that homes could unfortunately be experiencing issues with the roof. From gables to wind braces, every element of the roof must be reviewed, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Beacon Hill, but it is a health and safety necessity. A Beacon Hill roofing specialist with a good reference can provide a quote. Call Poole Roofing of 1 Black Water Dr, Wimborne, BH21 3BH on 01202 694266 for details.

House Prices

We are in the process of investing in a detached property in Beacon Hill (BH16). It is on the market for £272, 609. What considerations will a RICS surveyor allow for when valuing house prices in Beacon Hill ?

Any number of issues that might affect house prices e.g. the amount of ground rent or whether the property is on an adopted road. One method is to benchmark prices the prices of house achieved in the nearby area for similar houses.

This means house prices registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £295, 909, which is £23, 300 more than the selling price (£288, 804 was the blended house/flat average). Sunrise Cottage, 133A, Wareham Road, Lytchett Matravers, Poole, Purbeck, Dorset, BH16 6DZ a detached property was purchased for £330, 000 .

The most accurate way for home buyers to get an independent home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part.
