Home Buyers Survey in Norton

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Norton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Norton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Norton property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Norton surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and what will it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains an impartial valuation as well as a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the report. To ascertain an accurate value estimate your RICS valuer will call upon local Norton market factors and other things about the property e.g. desirability of the location. The valuer will also consider construction methods and will make certain key assumptions e.g. no damaging building techniques have been used.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local Norton area conjectures, for example services, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like pig farms, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

House Prices

Is £177, 426 a good amount to be buying a detached house close to good transport links in YO17 for and what will a qualified surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Norton ?

There are a great number of factors which could positively or negatively affect property values including existence of building regulations for modifications or the direction the house faces. It is useful to set against house prices recorded in Norton for comparable properties.

The means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £165, 326, which is £12, 100 less than the asking price and the flat/house average was £164, 267. 9, Manor View, Rillington, Malton, Ryedale, North Yorkshire, YO17 8JY a detached home sold for £69, 950 .

The most cost effective way for you to get a professional house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as an inclusive part.

A professional qualified RICS surveyor will actually visit the property in addition to allowing for the countless area issues that might affect values.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect said there is a possibility of a white asbestos toilet cistern at the property. Why would there be asbestos and can it be handled easily?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous structured mineral of several naturally occurring materials. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials e.g. wall panelling. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in toilet cistern. It is mainly found in the US. Technically all forms are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. In fact inhaling a one fibre is not fatal.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to damage it and expert advice must be taken as soon as possible. Getting rid of asbestos is costly but absolutely must be conducted by trained experts. Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos during a Norton building survey. However, surveyors will mention possible asbestos during the survey and will suggest further investigation.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a maisonette proximate to a landfill site

Landfill Sites take many forms including industrial waste material disposal. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks include methane gas generation. Potential health problems such as congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Norton will find structural defects connected with the site. Your legal representative will commission conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency databases in addition to Tewkesbury Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
