Home Buyers Survey in Winterbourne

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Winterbourne and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Winterbourne property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Winterbourne property's state of repair as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact can damp weather have on a building in Winterbourne? Will the Winterbourne property surveyor report on this?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the impact wet weather can have on a home is ignored by buyers. One indication that downspouts are under performing is mildew in the attic, and may lead to damage to foundations. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy, unless they are disregarded. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the house I am planning to acquire it appeared that there is an unsafe electrical system, does a Homebuyer Report in Winterbourne write anything on the electrics?

When performing a Winterbourne Home Survey the surveyor will typically make a note on the state of the electrics if it looks like they are in a less than satisfactory condition. The RICS surveyor is trained to things like whether there are residual circuit breakers or checking the state of a sample of switch gear. Inspecting any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will be part of the Homebuyer report in Winterbourne. Looking at any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by an electrician on the building will form part of the survey in Winterbourne .

The IEE advise that a periodic test is carried out at least every 10 years (5 if letting out).

House Prices

There is a property in BS36 on with a local agent for £66, 925. What things will a local surveyor evaluate when valuing house prices in Winterbourne ?

There are a huge number of issues which could affect property values for instance the total square meterage of the home or whether there is a flying freehold. It often helps to compare with prices recorded in Winterbourne for comparable properties. The average flat price registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £92, 125, which is £25, 200 more than the price you are intending to pay and the flat/house average was £231, 069. 19, First Floor Flat, Dragon Road, Winterbourne, Bristol, Northavon, Avon, BS36 1BQ a leasehold flat sold for £48, 000 .

The only way for home buyers to get an independent house valued is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as standard. Your local surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

The RICS surveyor should attend the site in addition to allowing for the myriad of location factors that have a bearing on property prices.
