House Prices

I would like to buy a flat in SP6. It is on the market for £141, 950. What will a Fordingbridge RICS chartered surveyor take into account in the process of a RICS survey ?

An impartial way for home buyers to get an accurate house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as a core component. A local surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect can heavy rain have on our new building in Fordingbridge? Where there are issues, what should we do?

Both in Fordingbridge, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the effect which heavy rainfall has on your home is rarely considered properly by buyers. Signs that gutters are blocked include leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage. This could then result in rotten roof timbers.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy. Where this is not maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it the right choice to get a full structural survey before purchasing a neglected forties house in Fordingbridge?

Full Structural Surveys are now known as Building Surveys. If you are contemplating the buying of an unusual Fordingbridge property, for example a dilapidated house, this is now the correct choice of home survey. This survey spells out crucial information in relation to the houses construction as well as any important technical details, following a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building. External buildings (if permanent) will, in addition, be checked out as part of the survey.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Fordingbridge. Is there any Scottish bond upkeep guidance we should be aware of??

Brick-built Fordingbridge apartments do benefit from many advantages compared to other types of construction. Unfortunately, they also be affected by diverse problems. For instance, wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall and should be taken very seriously. FLB Brickwork should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 33 Cowdray Av, Colchester, CO1 1US or 01206 769664.

Buyers in Fordingbridge should consider that a range of courses arrangements and colours have been used across the country for centuries. This being the case, upkeep may not always be straightforward. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.
