Home Buyers Survey in Cullompton

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Cullompton and which is cheaper?

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

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

If you are planning to make substantial modifications on the property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Cullompton property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

Is £144, 412 the right sort of price to be buying a flat in Cullompton in EX15 for and what things does the qualified surveyor take into account when valuing house prices in Cullompton ?

A myriad of factors exist which could positively or negatively affect house prices e.g. whether it is freehold, leasehold or share of freehold or whether there are any original features. It may help to weigh up prices against flat prices achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties. The mean flat price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £139, 712, which is £4, 700 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £190, 942. 27, Flat 2, Raleigh Drive, Cullompton, Mid Devon, Devon, EX15 1FZ sold for £135, 995 .

The most accurate way for home buyers to get an independent property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as part of the service.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a garage) and how does the surveyor work it out?

The Homebuyer Report contains an independent valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost. To fully consider an accurate value estimate your surveyor will take into account knowledge of Cullompton and other factors relating to the property e.g. square metres. The surveyor will also consider construction methods and will make certain other assumptions like no damaging building techniques have been used.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area conjectures, such as use of communal grounds or water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to environmental issues like pig farms, which will also be factored in.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an old renovated farmhouse. Will the house's age be a concern?

A building's age can create issues for homeowners. Structures built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to upkeep. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property. This may result in longer-term maintenance obligations.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a risk of brown asbestos boiler cupboard being found in property. Why would there be asbestos, are there any health risks and will the building survey in Cullompton report on it?

Asbestos is a dangerous substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials e.g. cement.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent sound absorption qualities and it may be found in ceilings. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. Finding asbestos does not necessarily constitute a risk to health.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to remove asbestos. Professional advice should be sought without delay. On no account attempt to handle it yourself. Cullompton Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a Cullompton HomeBuyer report. Surveyors will mention possible asbestos and should advise accordingly.
