About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Kibworth

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Kibworth and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Kibworth property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Kibworth property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Kibworth. Is there any brick wall advice we should be aware of?? Is age a factor?

Brick flats in Kibworth will experience various issues and defects, ranging from badly applied render to efflorescence.

A defect often found is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. J P M Pointing & Brickwork should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 68 Fairway Av, West Drayton, UB7 7AW or 01895 811018.

A number of styles of brick building are found in many homes built in this country. E.g. Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one.

If the Kibworth surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Asbestos roof tiles

A Kibworth builder commented that there is a danger of blue asbestos Artex present in house. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including soil vent pipes. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in rain water goods. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to disturb the asbestos and professional advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will note suspected asbestos and will advise accordingly.

House Prices

I intend to purchase a flat in LE8. The vendor is asking £141, 400. What things does the surveyor evaluate when conducting a RICS survey ?

There are a huge number of issues that might affect property values from anti social neighbours to the home having hard to change bad taste parts. One method is to benchmark prices the prices of flat registered at the Land Registry for similar flats. The average flat price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £124, 500, which is £16, 900 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £190, 498. Gala House, 3, Orchard Street, Fleckney, Leicester, Harborough, Leicestershire, LE8 8DS sold for £84, 000 .

The most reliable way for you to get an accurate and professional home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a professional valuation as part of the service. A qualified surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).
