About Us

Home Buyers Survey in East Riding Villages

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in East Riding Villages and which one is cheaper?

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

If the East Riding Villages property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the East Riding Villages property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can property in East Riding Villages built with stone cause problems for a new owner? Which factors should we consider?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of properties in East Riding Villages, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in East Riding Villages should be able to supply local stone.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits to upgrade to a full structural survey in East Riding Villages instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Full Structural Surveys don't actually exist now Building Survey is the new more technical home survey. When buying an unconventional home, for example a neglected East Riding Villages house, this is the most suitable survey to choose to get a surveyor to do. Subsequent to a thorough survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a formal report will be emailed and posted to the client outlining any relevant professional advice about the standard of construction and repair of the building.

There will be a few limitations with a Building Survey insofar as RICS chartered surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the East Riding Villages house e.g. removing secured hatches.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a 19th Century converted cow-house in East Riding Villages. What effect will the building's age have on maintenance?

The age of a structure can worry purchasers. East Riding Villages property constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be difficult to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. This can result in higher ongoing expenses. If you plan to make alterations to a period building, discuss options with your chartered surveyor for more information.

House Prices

There is a flat in East Riding Villages (HU5) with an asking price of £57, 871. What different issues will your East Riding Villages chartered surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in East Riding Villages ?

Any number of issues which could affect the price of property like any number of structural defects or the likelihood of development occurring nearby. It may help to look at prices achieved in the area for comparable properties. The average flat price recorded in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £48, 071, which is £9, 800 less than the price being asked.
