Home Buyers Survey in Dudley

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Dudley and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Dudley property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Dudley property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

House Prices

I intend to purchase a property in DY3 for around £134, 922. What considerations will a Dudley RICS surveyor consider during a Home Survey ?

There are a huge number of issues which could positively or negatively affect house prices from the tenure to its proximity to other factors sought after amenities. One method is to put side by side prices recorded in the same area for similar properties.

This means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £123, 422 - £11, 500 less than £134, 922 and the flat/house average was £120, 349. 3, Haslingden Crescent, Dudley, Dudley, West Midlands, DY3 2FE a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £209, 000 .

The most reliable way to get an impartial property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default. Your qualified RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Will your Dudley HomeBuyer Report look into this?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a structure, such as sticking window frames. A Dudley surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Parcels of wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a converted stable. Will repairs costs be higher?

The age of a structure can concern buyers. Property built with traditional methods can be costly to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Especially for a home in one of Dudley's conservation areas, Materials suitable for the work may be required. Built in the 17th century, Manor Farm, Barn in Dudley is a fine example of a Post Medieval-period barn.
