About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Dinnington

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Dinnington and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Dinnington property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you comprehensive details of the Dinnington property's general condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any considerations I need to check out if purchasing a converted flat in Dinnington in a conservation area, particularly in respect of to house prices?

There are thousands of conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local councils.

Home Buyers Surveys in Dinnington are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of local issues and any effect they have on the property. Property Prices will likely be higher due to conservation areas being preserved.

RICS surveyors are trained to advise you if the home is/might be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will suggest additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by your legal adviser. Unauthorised adjustments to the building may be noted in the survey but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a flat in Dinnington and spotted there are no cracks in the brickwork outside, but lounge floor dips noticeably, could this be evidence of subsidence? What are the risks, and what can be done to remedy subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. Recently built homes, for example, will need to settle under the home's own weight. Additionally, most homes in Dinnington are erected with a variety of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

Merely superficial cracks not caused by subsidence could be painted over. Signs of potential subsidence include rippling wallpaper that isn't caused by dampness.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a barn conversion in Dinnington. Will the age of the building be a concern?

For traditionally-built Dinnington property, age can concern buyers. Dinnington property constructed with traditional methods can be a chore to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. If the residence you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact the surveyor for more detail.

House Prices

We are going to be purchasing a detached property in S25. It is on the market for £130, 450. What things does the Dinnington RICS chartered surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Dinnington ?

There is a vast array of things that might affect the price of property like the likelihood of getting planning permission to extend or the location and proximity of nearby schools. As an indicator, one can try to weigh up prices against the prices of house achieved in Dinnington at the same time for similar houses.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £129, 550, which is £900 less than the amount you are paying. 17, All Saints Meadows, Laughton Common, Sheffield, Rotherham, South Yorkshire, S25 3UD a detached property sold for £86, 950 .

The best way for you to get a professional property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report in Dinnington which includes a Property Valuation Report as part of the service. Your chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

A professional local surveyor will always go to the building in addition to factoring in all other location variables that have a bearing on the value of property.
