Home Buyers Survey in Oundle

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Oundle and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Oundle property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Oundle property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I would like to purchase a flat in Oundle, PE8 for £124, 000. What will the Oundle qualified surveyor take into account on a valuation ?

There are a great number of factors that might affect property values from the tenure i.e. freehold or leasehold to whether it is near the coast or has a coastal view. It often helps to look at flat prices recorded in Oundle for comparable properties. The mean flat price recorded at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £120, 000, which is £4, 000 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £377, 163. Derwent House, 8, Flat 13, Station Road, Oundle, Peterborough, East Northamptonshire, Northamptonshire, PE8 4DE a leasehold apartment recently sold for £120, 000 .

An impartial way to get a formal property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a professional valuation as standard. Your qualified RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A Oundle builder said subsidence could be a problem affecting the flat. Is this a urgent concern, and what subsidence information does the Oundle Home Buyers Survey include?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a structure, but some degree of movement will always occur. New properties, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the building. Additionally, most homes in Oundle are constructed from a range of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high sand content, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks. In extreme environmental conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. This is not usually a concern in England and Wales however.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Unfortunately, even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can in rare cases take months. A Oundle surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.
