About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Geddington

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Geddington and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Geddington property's condition and it includes information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled property. What should we look in to, and what will the survey reveal?

From Cromwell Sandstone to Mountcharles Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like delamination will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Geddington buildings, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for the framing of windows or doors. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

Damage resulting from flooding

When purchasing in Geddington, should we be concerned about a flood risk, and will the HomeBuyer Report search for flood damage?

The lives of many owners in Geddington and across the UK have been impacted by flooding damage, and purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, offer suggestions for better flood defences.Less expensive preventative measures include air brick covers. The residential surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor check the safety of the gas appliances?

Your local surveyor will visually examine the easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) for instance, as well as gas associated appliances or installations for example - chimney linings. The gas fittings won't actually be taken off. The gas system won't be tested at all. Needless to say, gas is potentially deadly, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

House Prices

I am going to buy a house in Geddington (NN14) for around £299, 823. What will the surveyor allow for when carrying out a home buyers survey ?

Any number of issues which could affect property values from existence of building regulations for modifications to the quality of the bathroom and fittings. It can help to analyse house values recorded in Geddington for comparable properties.

The average house price completed in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £279, 423, which is £20, 400 less than the amount being asked. Rectory Farmhouse, 15, School Lane, Islip, Kettering, East Northamptonshire, Northamptonshire, NN14 3LQ a detached property sold for £400, 000 .

An impartial way for home buyers to get a formal house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part. Your RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

The local surveyor will always attend home in addition to factoring in the countless issues affecting values.
