HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Albany Park and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Albany Park property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Albany Park property's general condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

I am going to acquire a house in Albany Park. What factors will surveyor evaluate when carrying out a valuation ?

Any number of issues that can affect property values from living on flood plain to whether there are any conservation area infringements. .

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

A professional surveyor will attend the house in addition to considering any other issues that can impact on values.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a property surveyor investigate indications of water damage?

It is estimated that over two million properties are exposed to flooding damage, and owning a house in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. In addition, the Home Buyers Survey may offer suggestions for better flood defences.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. properly constructed drainage. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

According to the Environment Agency, no flood alerts were found for Albany Park.

Damaged Render

What will the Albany Park Surveyor be focused on, on a smooth stucco coated regency home in Albany Park that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact a kind of render. Commonly stucco is applied to brick hardens to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. Stucco is highly aesthetic and is was often applied to Georgian buildings. it can be prone to defect and Albany Park Homebuyer Reports sometimes reveal issues for example, damp trapped behind paint. Other potential problems may be when moisture gets in under flashings that results in large areas of detachment. Resolving problems may be costly as the skills are getting rarer.
