HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Barkingside and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Barkingside property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension on the Barkingside property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Barkingside property's general condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Flemish bond repair advice - can a surveyor in Barkingside assist?

Brick-walled Barkingside apartments can suffer from several common problems, such as lack of a damp proof course. An especially severe issue is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. Stevens John may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 104 Fairwood Rd, Cardiff, CF5 3QL or 029 2056 5195.

Buyers in Barkingside should consider that a range of courses arrangements and colours are used in properties built throughout the ages. This being the case, upkeep may not always be straightforward. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I get a full structural survey prior to buying a derelict eighties purpose built flat in Barkingside?

The Full Structural Survey is now known as a Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if buying a 60 year old or less Barkingside property made out of standard building materials. The Building Survey is certainly the most appropriate survey to opt for in relation to the flat described. Shortly after an exhaustive inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a written report is posted and emailed to you detailing in depth and significant advice in relation to the condition of the flat. There are certain provisos with the survey to be aware of as a RICS surveyor will not be able to (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the Barkingside flat e.g. lifting up fitted carpets. Also flats frequently add complexity as the surveyor can only look into the area within identifiable boundary of the flat, the surveyor may exist other sections of the property e.g. the roof.

House Prices

I am planning to purchase a detached property in IG6. The vendor is asking £316, 424. What things does the Barkingside RICS surveyor allow for on a home buyers survey ?

There are a huge number of issues which could positively or negatively affect the price of property from national factors such as interest rates to the size of the garden. As an indicator, one can try to analyse house values achieved in the nearby area for similar houses.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £299, 024, which is £17, 400 less than £316, 424 - the amount you buying for. The average for houses and flats was £272, 673. 16, Hazel Lane, Ilford, Redbridge, Greater London, IG6 2AG a detached property sold for £670, 000 .

The most accurate way to get a professional property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report by default.

A professional surveyor will always go to the property in addition to factoring in the multiple variables that can affect the value of property.
