Home Buyers Survey in Sherborne

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Sherborne and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Sherborne property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the property, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Sherborne property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing an old barn conversion. What effect will the structure's unusual construction have on upkeep?

For houses in Sherborne built before the 20th Century, age can create difficulties for an owner, and Homes showcasing traditional methods can be a chore to repair. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of Sherborne's conservation areas. As an example of Medieval building, Hall House, Newland in Sherborne was constructed in around 1299.

House Prices

I am going to acquire a property in DT9. It is on the market for £140, 771. What things does a Sherborne qualified surveyor evaluate when carrying out a property valuation report ?

There are many factors that can impact on house prices ranging from whether it is freehold, leasehold or share of freehold to the standard of the bathroom/s. It is useful to look at flat prices achieved in Sherborne at the same time for comparable properties. The average flat price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £123, 071, which is £17, 700 less than the asking price (£247, 013 was the blended house/flat average). 5, Lyster Gardens, Ilchester, Yeovil, South Somerset, Somerset, BA22 8LQ a leasehold flat recently sold for £87, 500 .

The most accurate way for home buyers to get an accurate house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as a core component.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will a Property Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco coated Victorian home in Sherborne which we wish to buy.

Stucco is actually just a type of render. Normally stucco is layered over red brick to form a very smooth surface. The effect is very attractive and was often applied to Victorian houses. It is similar to plaster and mortar. It used to have lime in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to help prevent cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors can report defects such as when it is faced with on-going weathering and rain which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost. Other issues could result from the difficulty in discovering damp underneath. Resolving Stucco problems may be costly as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
