Home Buyers Survey in Devizes

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Devizes and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Devizes property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations on the Devizes property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Devizes property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

I am going to purchase a flat in SN10. It is on the market for £142, 600. What considerations will a Devizes chartered surveyor consider when carrying out a survey ?

There is a vast array of things that might affect house prices from the tenure i.e. freehold or leasehold to the modernity of the kitchen. It often helps to benchmark prices the prices of flat recorded in Devizes for comparable properties. The mean flat price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £124, 500, which is £18, 100 less than the price you are intending to pay. The average factoring in houses and flats was £226, 065. Castle Court, 14, St Johns Street, Devizes, Wiltshire, Wiltshire, SN10 1DQ was purchased for £130, 000 .

The only way to get an independent property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as part of the service.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a risk of brown asbestos boiler cupboard being found in property. Which types of asbestos are a concern?

Asbestos is a noxious substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials for example ceiling boards. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in boilers. Technically all forms are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken not to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a Devizes HomeBuyer report. Your surveyor will report on possible asbestos risks and should advise accordingly.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Devizes and are looking for a property built with brick walls. What warnings would a Devizes property surveyor give? Does render make a difference?

Brick-constructed buildings in Devizes feature several advantages compared to other building materials, but they can also experience several common problems, such as frost damage. An issue of particular concern is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Smith M C at 113 Poplar Rd, Warmley, Bristol, BS30 5JS on 0117-967 4213.

A great deal of variety of brick building have been used for centuries. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume.
