Home Buyers Survey in Mapperley

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Mapperley and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Mapperley property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Mapperley property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a local surveyor inspect the state of repair of the gas mains supply?

Your chartered surveyor will visually survey the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include whether the meter is in an escape route at the home, as well as gas connected installations, for instance chimney breasts. A Mapperley local surveyor won't remove external fittings or housings nor will the surveyor carry out any tests on the gas system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially hazardous, should there be any worries about gas or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, call a gas engineer immediately.

The 1998 Gas Safety Regulations legally require landlords to commission appliance and installation inspections every 12 months. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to consider when buying a building constructed in 1720? What consequences will the cladding have on upkeep?

Older construction methods and materials can create difficulties for an owner. Properties built using traditional methods can be a chore to repair. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for , for example, a Grade II listed house, Materials suitable for the work may be required. If you have doubts, speak to the Mapperley surveyor for more detail.

House Prices

We are planning to be acquiring a buy to let detached property in Mapperley, DE7 for around the £162, 216 mark. What will a qualified surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in Mapperley ?

There is a vast array of things which could positively or negatively affect the price of property from the general economy to the amount of accommodation it offers. It often helps to consider prices registered at the Land Registry for similar houses.

This means house prices registered at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £155, 416, which is £6, 800 less than the asking price. 4, Wakefield Croft, Ilkeston, Erewash, Derbyshire, DE7 9LG a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £173, 000 .

In order for home buyers to get a formal home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as part of the service. Your chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

A professional qualified RICS surveyor should attend home in addition to allowing for all other variables that have a bearing on property values.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a home surveyor investigate flooding?

Flooding in Mapperley can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. It is strongly recommended that the property is protected, before flooding begins. Flood water can enter a Mapperley home through several routes, including loose patio doors. Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.
