Home Buyers Survey in Horfield

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Horfield and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Horfield property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Horfield property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns I would be advised to look out for when buying an extended house in Horfield in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local councils. Surveyors in Horfield must have knowledge of relevant local area factors and any effect they have with the home and its value. Values will be greater as a result of the areas being largely unspoilt However many conservation areas are falling into a poor state for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors will inform you if the property is possibly is designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by your legal representation. Unsympathetic adjustments to the property will also be reported but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor.

House Prices

There is a detached house in BS7 with an asking price of £179, 149. What different issues will your Horfield surveyor take into account when valuing house prices in Horfield ?

Any number of issues which could positively or negatively affect the price of property for instance the existence of any restrictions over use of the property or whether the property is on an adopted road. One method is to look at prices recorded in Horfield for similar properties.

The average house price completed in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £174, 149, which is £5, 000 less than £179, 149 - the amount you buying for. The house/flat average was £163, 124. 3, Ardagh Court, Bristol, City Of Bristol, City Of Bristol, BS7 0HX a detached house sold for £182, 500 .

The only way for you to get an impartial house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as a core component.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Horfield structure with a loft conversion - What should we investigate during the survey?

This is a common concern for home buyers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Homes throughout Horfield could feature roof maintenance problems, such as poor insulation. Every element should be checked, e.g. rafters, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like wholesale replacement, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable local contractor.
