About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Yate

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Yate and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Yate property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Yate property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

We have found a property in BS37 in Yate on for £189, 171. What considerations will a Yate surveyor consider when calculating house prices in Yate ?

There are many factors which could have a bearing on house prices, for example the homes proximity to contaminated land or whether the home is landlocked. It may help to consider house values registered at the Land Registry for similar properties.

The average house price recorded at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £180, 471, which is £8, 700 less than the amount being asked. The average factoring in houses and flats was £172, 682. Millfields, Mill Crescent, Westerleigh, Bristol, South Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, BS37 8QS a detached property sold for £156, 000 .

The most accurate way to get a formal home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation by default. A qualified RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the unmodernised property we are interested to purchase we saw that there were damaged electrical sockets, will the surveyor go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

When conducting a Yate Home Survey a qualified surveyor will typically mention the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in a poor state of repair. A professional surveyor is trained to issues like confirming the state of repair of any fitted appliances, e.g. storage radiators. .

Examining the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will form part of the Homebuyer report in Yate. Looking at any documentation from any recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the building should be part of the Homebuyer report in Yate .

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) recommend that a PIR is carried out every ten years (or every 5 if letting).

Conservation area

Will there be any problems I need to verify when intending to buy an extended house in Yate in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by the local council. Your surveyor must have relevant knowledge of relevant local issues and any effect may have on the property and its value. The price of property will likely be enhanced due to them being preserved. However many have fallen into disrepair for example - ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors are trained to advise if the house is possibly in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are raised by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unsympathetic developments to the building may be reported, however these should be concern for the lawyer.
