Home Buyers Survey in Sandringham

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Sandringham and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Sandringham property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Sandringham property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A neighbour said subsidence is a problem affecting the flat. What can be done to fix subsidence if subsidence is found during the Home Buyers Survey?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a structure which compromises its structural integrity. Most structures experience some minor cracking. The builder will likely return to a new structure after some months in order to repair settlement damage.

Many properties develop superficial cracks in a doorway, due to settlement. In serious conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. This is not usually a concern in England and Wales however.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, to remedy both the causes of the subsidence and the resulting damage to the property itself.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 19th Century coast house. Will the property's age be a concern?

Some purchasers would be interested in owning a old, characterful home one day. For traditionally-built Sandringham property, age, however, can create issues for homeowners. Structures built with traditional methods can be expensive to upkeep. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. Contact your Sandringham surveyor for further advice.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact may wet weather have on a Sandringham property, and does our Sandringham building survey mention it? Could it affect the property value?

As a frequent surveyor of houses in the area, I find it strange that the effect which wet conditions has on Sandringham buildings is not given the attention it deserves by buyers. If you have only seen the property you intend to purchase on a clear day, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that gutters are blocked include rotten roofing elements. This could then result in a damp or flooded cellar.

Whether buying in Sandringham or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, if caught early. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

House Prices

I want to buy a detached property in Sandringham (PE32) for an asking price of £207, 245. What considerations will a Sandringham qualified RICS surveyor allow for during a RICS survey ?

There are a huge number of issues that can add to or subtract from property values from the tenure to general regional pricing. You can try to weigh up prices against house values achieved in the area for similar properties.

This means house prices registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £179, 045, which is £28, 200 less than £207, 245. 79, Eastfields, Narborough, Kings Lynn, Breckland, Norfolk, PE32 1ST a detached house sold for £145, 000 .

The only way for home buyers to get a formal property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report as a core component. A local surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme.
