Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Crowborough and which is cheaper?

House Prices

I am going to buy a detached property in Crowborough (TN6). The asking price is £417, 639. What will a Crowborough qualified surveyor consider on a RICS survey ?

There are a great number of factors that might affect the price of property from proximity to road noise to whether it is near the coast or has a coastal view. You can try to weigh up prices against the prices of house registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties.

This means house prices registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £391, 039 - £26, 600 less than £417, 639. The average factoring in houses and flats was £374, 782. Milburn House, Goldsmiths Avenue, Crowborough, Wealden, East Sussex, TN6 1RJ a detached property sold for £390, 000 .

The most reliable way for you to get a formal house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as part of the service.

A qualified RICS surveyor will always go to the house in addition to factoring in the wealth of area variables that have a bearing on the value of property.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A builder suggested subsidence has been a concern. Is this a urgent concern, and what subsidence issues does the Chartered Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is movement in a structure's foundations. Generally, subsidence can be fixed. Less common than subsidence, heave occurs where the ground level moves upwards.

In areas of clay soil, drought can cause the water table to drop. This dries out, causing the clay to contract, putting a strain on the foundations and which can result in movement. In some cases, the presence of organic material, which then decomposes, can also undermine the foundations. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Underpinning is a lengthy process used to stabilise the foundations of a property, and is required in around a quarter of subsidence matters. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.
