About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Chesterton

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Chesterton and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Chesterton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Chesterton property's general condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

External walls

In the HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects for 'E4 - Main walls' ?

For a Chesterton property, one issue is mortar of a veneer wall that has badly deteriorated. The surveyor's report on the condition of the external walls will consider all visible defects. Damp proofing, including the DPC, is also included here. Red, or condition rating three, indicates particularly concerning issues. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect should wet weather have on our new home in Chesterton?

Both in Chesterton, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact rain can have on property in Chesterton is not given the attention it deserves by property buyers. Signs that drainage are a cause for concern include spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts. If you are worried, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Luckily, these defects are generally easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive.

House Prices

We have found a detached property in ST5 in Chesterton on for £138, 241. What factors will qualified RICS surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in Chesterton ?

The average house price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £119, 441, which is £18, 800 less than the amount you are paying (£117, 564 was the blended house/flat average). 22, Willard Close, Newcastle, Newcastle-Under-Lyme, Staffordshire, ST5 7NB a detached property was purchased for £170, 000 .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an older farmhouse in Chesterton. What should be budgeted for repairs?

The age of a structure can often be problematic, and Structures built with traditional methods can be challenging to maintain. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Chesterton listed buildings. This may result in higher ongoing expenses.
