Home Buyers Survey in Wymondham

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Wymondham and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Wymondham property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations on the property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Wymondham property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Wymondham house with a loft conversion, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. Which issues relating to the attic will be checked during the survey?

This often causes anxiety for purchasers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Houses across Wymondham could feature roof maintenance problems. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ceiling joists to fascias, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

The expense of loft insulation, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable builder from the area.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented - saying there may be asbestos cement sheets in existence at the property. Is this a major concern?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials including ceilings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic sound absorption properties, it may be found in ceiling material.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken never to move the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought without delay. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will note the risk of asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.

House Prices

I would like to acquire a detached property in Wymondham, NR9 for an asking price of £251, 605. What factors will Wymondham RICS surveyor take into account during a professional valuation ?

There are a huge number of issues that can impact on property values ranging from location of nearby transport links to the quality of the bathroom and fittings. One method is to put side by side prices achieved in the area for comparable properties.

This means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £248, 105, which is £3, 500 less than the price being asked. The average factoring in houses and flats was £248, 051. 2, Royal Oak Mews, Hingham, Norwich, South Norfolk, Norfolk, NR9 4JF a detached home sold for £86, 750 .

The only way to get a professional house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as part of the service. Your chartered surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to think about when purchasing an older property? Will repairs costs be higher?

For houses in Wymondham built before the 20th Century, age can worry purchasers. Properties built using traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Construction materials, such as matching tiles, , which could mean long-term upkeep.If you plan to make alterations to a period house, discuss options with your chartered surveyor for more information.
