Home Buyers Survey in Minehead

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Minehead and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Minehead property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Minehead property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

We are in the process of buying a flat in Minehead (TA24) for around £103, 876. What different issues will your Minehead RICS chartered surveyor consider when calculating house prices in Minehead ?

There are many factors that can affect the price of property like the structural condition of the building or whether the home is landlocked. It is useful to weigh up prices against values achieved in the nearby area for similar properties. The mean flat price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £93, 876, which is £10, 000 less than the price you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £218, 784. 6, Friday Street, Minehead, West Somerset, Somerset, TA24 5UA was purchased for £27, 000 .

The most reliable way to get an impartial property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a professional valuation as a core component. A qualified RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

A qualified RICS surveyor will always attend the building as well as considering the variety of area items affecting property values.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the building we intend to buy, the agent said that there was no RCD on the fuse board - does a Homebuyer Report in Minehead go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

When carrying out a Home Survey in Minehead a RICS surveyor will comment on the condition of the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in a dangerous state. This should include a general inspection of open or exposed parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as areas like reporting on the category of electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear.

Confirming the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact should rain have on a Minehead building, and does our Minehead home buyers survey mention it? Where there is necessary work, what should we do?

As a frequent surveyor of homes in the region, I find it strange that this issue is not given the attention it deserves by home buyers. If you have investigated the house in warm weather, issues may have been hidden. Signs that gutters are damaged include mildew in the attic. This could then result in water damage.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to fix if dealt with quickly, unless they are disregarded. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
