Home Buyers Survey in Guildford

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Guildford and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Guildford property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Guildford property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can Darley Dale stone-built properties be difficult to repair. Are there specific matters to consider?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like algae will vary with the particular type of stone. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

House Prices

We are going to be buying a property in GU4 for £224, 037. What things will a qualified RICS surveyor consider when valuing house prices in Guildford ?

There are many factors that might affect the price of property like the state of the roof or if it is near a potential development. It can help to set against flat values achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties. The mean flat price registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £250, 137, which is £26, 100 more than the price being asked (£472, 109 was the blended house/flat average). 45, Uplands Road, Guildford, Guildford, Surrey, GU1 2RW a new build leasehold flat recently sold for £200, 000 .

In order to get a formal home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report by default.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the building we are planning to lease, the agent said that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses; will the Guildford surveyor advise the wiring and electrical system?

When carrying out a Home Survey in Guildford your RICS surveyor should usually make a note on the electrics if it is suspected that they are in a poor condition. This should include a general check of open or exposed sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other possible problems relating to things like checking the condition of fixed electrical appliances like storage heaters or whether there is an on-peak/off-peak mains supply. Inspecting the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed will usually be part of the survey in Guildford.
