Home Buyers Survey in Thurmaston

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Thurmaston and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Thurmaston property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Thurmaston property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the RICS surveyor check the condition of the gas supply?

The RICS surveyor will locate and visually check the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the routing of any gas pipes at the home, as well as gas related appliances, for instance chimney breasts or flues. The Thurmaston qualified RICS surveyor will not remove the fittings and will not do any tests whatsoever on the gas system. Most people are aware that gas can be unsafe and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer immediately.

House Prices

There is a potentially interesting investment property in LE4 in Thurmaston on with a local agent for £163, 383. What will the surveyor take into account when valuing house prices in Thurmaston during a professional valuation ?

There is a vast array of things that might affect the price of property for example the existence of any restrictions over use of the property or whether there are any conservation area infringements. It often helps to weigh up prices against flat prices recorded in the same area for comparable properties. The mean flat price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £140, 983, which is £22, 400 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The average factoring in houses and flats was £159, 688. 32, Warren View, Leicester, Leicester, Leicester, LE4 9WZ sold for £38, 000 .

An impartial way to get an accurate house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as standard. Your surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme.

A RICS surveyor will visit the site in addition to considering the multiple influences that can affect property values.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a home and the seller has told us that it has been constructed with Slate. Are there specific problems to consider?

From Cromwell Sandstone to Portland Cap Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Maintenance tips include. If you are planning to renovate, consider that the British Geological Survey's GeoReport includes a stone matching service. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.
