Home Buyers Survey in Stowmarket

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Stowmarket and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Stowmarket property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Stowmarket property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the period property we are intending to lease, it appeared that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; does a surveyor go into detail on the electrics?

When performing a Home Survey in Stowmarket the RICS surveyor will usually comment on the electrics if it is obvious that they are in a less than satisfactory state.

This will include a by sight check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of the open sections of the wiring and other areas like checking the type of electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or verifying the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. .

Examining the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Stowmarket.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers suggest a Periodic Inspection be completed every ten years (or every 5 if renting out).

House Prices

Is £117, 194 in the right ball park amount to buy a flat in Stowmarket in IP14 for and what things does the Stowmarket chartered surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Stowmarket ?

There are many factors which could have a bearing on the price of property for instance national factors such as interest rates or whether there is any subsidence. You can try to analyse flat values recorded in Stowmarket for comparable properties. The mean flat price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £96, 894, which is £20, 300 less than the asking price. The average for houses and flats was £175, 182. Tavern Court, 6, Tavern Street, Stowmarket, Mid Suffolk, Suffolk, IP14 1PL a new build leasehold flat sold for £54, 354 .

The only way for you to get a formal house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default.
