Home Buyers Survey in Durrington

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Durrington and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Durrington property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Durrington property's state of repair as well as advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have learnt that Durrington property built on clay soil can experience problems. Will a Durrington Home Buyers Survey look into this, and what defects will be reported on?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a property. Specific problems include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Drought, for instance, can have a measurable contracting effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. Signs like warped window frames in the kitchen can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Durrington, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

House Prices

I want to acquire a detached property in SP4. The asking price is £212, 715. What different issues will your Durrington RICS chartered surveyor consider during a survey ?

Any number of issues which could have a bearing on property values from proximity to road noise to the condition of shared common parts. It often helps to compare with house values recorded in the same area for comparable properties.

The means house prices registered at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £190, 815, which is £21, 900 less than the price you are intending to pay. The average for houses and flats was £189, 031. 34, Primrose Place, Durrington, Salisbury, Wiltshire, Wiltshire, SP4 8FE a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £209, 950 .

The most accurate way for you to get an independent property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a formal valuation as an inclusive part. Your chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

Damage resulting from flooding

When buying in Durrington, should we be concerned about a flood risk, and will the home buyers survey look for any flood damage, or whether flooding has affected nearby homes?

Overflowing rivers, rain and insufficient drainage can cause water damage caused by flooding, and house buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. In addition, the house survey may advise on urgent repairs.An awareness of characteristics of the Durrington area likely to affect the Durrington home also enables the chartered surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood risk alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

The areas in Upavon, Haxton, Haxton Bridge, Netheravon, Milston, Durrington and Bulford in close proximity to the River Avon, near Durrington, was given an updated status on 6/12/08, by the Environment Agency.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will an infestation affect the purchase price of a property. Should we get a property surveyor?

Purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to report on an infestation.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. The chartered surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Substandard guttering

For the Durrington HomeBuyer Report, what effect will a green light rating have on rainwater pipes and gutters?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. A rating of 1 is the highest, meaning that this aspect of the house or flat being surveyed does not need urgent attention. However, frequent maintenance could still be needed. Quite a common example is where roof drains are not located at the roof's lowest points. The rainwater goods are inspected by eye, where access is possible. E3 does not cover internal parts of the water system, such as suspected issues relating to a combined heating and water system.
