Home Buyers Survey in Tetbury

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Tetbury and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Tetbury property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Tetbury property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get English Garden Wall bond maintenance tips for the Victorian terrace we are purchasing? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick-built Tetbury apartments demonstrate several benefits over buildings using regular cut stone. Unfortunately, they also show signs of several common problems, such as horizontal cracking. For example, rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues and may require immediate attention. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Wheeler N, 60 Kitwell La, Birmingham, B32 4AL on 0121-501 1973 for a quote for repair work.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one, to the rare, such Scottish bond features five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a property in Tetbury. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What aspects of the loft will be reported on when the survey is performed?

This is a common concern for purchasers. Many properties can be hiding serious damage to the roof. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from parapet walls to rafters, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Roof repairs need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a contractor for the job itself. Speak to Boswell of 129 White Lion Pk, Malmesbury, SN16 0QR on 01666 822076 for details.

House Prices

My partner and I are intend to be acquiring a property in GL8 which is being marketed for £296, 860. What will a qualified surveyor take into account when valuing house prices in Tetbury on a home buyers survey ?

There are a great number of factors which could have a bearing on house prices such as the quality of nearby schools or whether the property is sold under probate. It is useful to analyse the prices of house achieved in the nearby area for similar houses.

The means house prices recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £280, 660 - £16, 200 less than £296, 860. The average for houses and flats was £264, 595. Grange Cottage, Saddlewood, Leighterton, Tetbury, Cotswold, Gloucestershire, GL8 8UQ a detached property sold for £400, 000 .

In order to get an accurate property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part. A RICS chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

The chartered surveyor should attend the house as well as considering any other area influences that might affect the value of property.
