Home Buyers Survey in Ironbridge

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Ironbridge and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Ironbridge property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Ironbridge property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will a Ironbridge Surveyor look out for on a smooth stucco coated house in Ironbridge which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really a kind of render. Normally stucco is applied to underlying red brick that sets to a smooth stone like surface. The effect is highly aesthetic and is common on some Georgian houses. it can be problematic and Ironbridge Home Buyers Suveys commonly discover any number of problems e.g. lateral cracking that follows the underlying mortar joints. Other issues could be when dampness gets in under sills which causes detachment. Fixing problems with stucco may be surprisingly expensive as renderers are getting rarer.

House Prices

I intend to acquire a property in Ironbridge (TF8) for an asking price of £233, 225. What things will a surveyor evaluate in the process of a Home Survey ?

There are a great number of factors which could have a bearing on the price of property from the amount of service charges payable to the size of bedrooms (single/double). As an indicator, one can try to look at values registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties.

The average house price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £210, 125, which is £23, 100 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. 1, Lawtons Lane, Coalbrookdale, Telford, Wrekin, Wrekin, TF8 7EJ a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £130, 500 .

The only way for you to get a professional house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a formal valuation as part of the service. A RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

A chartered surveyor will actually visit the site in addition to allowing for the large variety of influences that might affect the value of property.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact could heavy rain have on our new home, and does our Ironbridge home buyers survey mention it? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which damp weather has on a home is not considered. If you have only been to the home in good weather, issues may have been hidden. If you have suspicions, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are quite easy to resolve.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have been told that clay soil can be the source of maintenance problems for structures in Ironbridge. Will my House Survey look into this?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Ironbridge home. Issues range from sub-soil shrinkage to soil movement, both of which can put a home's foundations under great strain. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a building. Visible results may be anything from cracks along the kitchen ceiling to a hard-to-open kitchen door. A Ironbridge surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
