Home Buyers Survey in Nailsea

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Nailsea and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Nailsea property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Nailsea property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I want to acquire a detached house in Nailsea (BS48). It is on the market for £293, 017. What things does the Nailsea local surveyor take into account on a professional valuation ?

Any number of issues that can affect property values from proximity to road noise to defects in the lease. One method is to set against prices achieved in the area for similar properties.

The average house price recorded at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £273, 417, which is £19, 600 less than the price being asked. The average factoring in houses and flats was £267, 667. Leveret House, Nailsea Wall Lane, Nailsea, Bristol, North Somerset, North Somerset, BS48 4DD a detached property sold for £250, 000 .

In order for you to get a professional home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as part of the service. A qualified RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the unmodernised property we are possibly going to lease we think we noticed that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system; does Nailsea Homebuyer Report advise the electrics?

During a Home Survey in Nailsea the surveyor will typically add detail on the condition of the electrics if it appears that they are in a hazardous condition. This should include a general view of any revealed parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. on top of concerns such as where to find the consumer unit or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. A check for the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey. Examining the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE advise an electrical system check is carried out at least every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw evidence of that the bathroom floor dipped in one corner, is this subsidence? What are the risks, and what subsidence information does the Nailsea Building Survey include?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes may suffer some degree of superficial cracks. Where the home is of very recent construction, the builder will usually return to a new home after six months so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Merely superficial cracks not caused by subsidence can be filled and repainted. Signs of potential subsidence include new, suddenly visible cracks in brick or render.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an older property in Nailsea. Will repairs costs be higher?

Many purchasers would be interested in owning a house with personality, like a period conversion. Vernacular architecture, however, can worry purchasers. Structures built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to repair. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work, which could increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey.
