Home Buyers Survey in Danbury

HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Danbury property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Danbury property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I intend to buy a property in Danbury (CM3), being marketed for £194, 167. What things does the Danbury RICS chartered surveyor consider when carrying out a survey ?

There are a great number of factors which could positively or negatively affect property values from whether work needs to be to the property to whether the garden is overlooked. It can help to look at prices achieved in Danbury at the same time for similar properties. The mean flat price recorded at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £180, 667, which is £13, 500 less than the amount you are intending to pay (£356, 719 was the blended house/flat average). 8, Bell Court, Rettendon Common, Chelmsford, Essex, CM3 8JP a leasehold apartment recently sold for £112, 000 .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get an independent house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report in Danbury which includes a formal valuation as part of the service. A surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

A chartered surveyor will visit the house as well as factoring in the multiple area issues that can affect property prices.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls we need to look into if purchasing a period property in Danbury inside a conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by local councils.

A Building Surveyors must have knowledge of local area factors and the connection may have on the property and its value. Values will likely be more than prices outside the area which is down to them being largely unspoilt

Property surveyors can be expected to tell you whether the building is or might be is designated and Section I of the Danbury Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are raised by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unapproved developments that do not have Local Authority approval should be advised but these are really more a investigated by the lawyer. Bailey and Co are a local firm situated at, Maldon, Essex, CM9 5QF should be happy to advise further. Tel: 01621 874600

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Danbury, and think we saw signs of vermin in the kitchen. What advice should we get?

Homes in Danbury will often be free of major pest problems. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. Evidence may not be easy to find. For example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Treatment for pests may include chemical treatment or destruction of tainted materials.
