Home Buyers Survey in Parson Cross

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Parson Cross property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension on the Parson Cross property, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Parson Cross property's condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is a risk of blue asbestos fire doors present in house. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous substance formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials for example boilers. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in boiler cupboard. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to disturb asbestos. Professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos during the survey. However, surveyors will mention potential asbestos and should advise accordingly.

House Prices

There is a detached property in S5 for £108, 153. What things does a qualified RICS surveyor evaluate when estimating house prices in Parson Cross ?

There is a near endless list of things that can impact on the price of property e.g. the amount of ground rent or the over all desirability of the street. It may help to benchmark prices the prices of house registered at the Land Registry for similar houses.

The means house prices paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £81, 353, which is £26, 800 less than the asking price. The average factoring in houses and flats was £79, 665. 7, Granby Road, Sheffield, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S5 6WD a detached house sold for £115, 000 .

The most accurate way to get an impartial property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default. Your RICS chartered surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

The chartered surveyor should visit the building as well as allowing for the myriad of variables that have a bearing on house prices.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My wife spotted signs of an infestation in the bedroom. What can we do?

Parson Cross purchasers should know that is not a requirement that a seller to disclose a vermin problem.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. An affected building may not always be easy to identify. As an example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies to an infestation can include traps.RICS guidelines on the issue of pest problems are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your Parson Cross surveyor.
