HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Belsize Park and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Belsize Park property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Belsize Park property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Belsize Park Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rainfall an issue in Belsize Park? Could damaged downspouts lower the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, heavy rain and the effect it can have on property in Belsize Park are ignored by house purchasers. If you have only been to the residence on a clear day, obvious defects may be harder to find. Signs that drainage are under performing include rusted iron elements. If you are concerned, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to fix. Where this is poorly maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Stone block wall damage

Will a conversion with stone walls create issues? What should we be particularly aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Issues including spalling brick affect many stone-walled houses. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as replacing missing or badly worn stones.

House Prices

There is a detached property in NW3 - Belsize Park with an asking price of £2, 054, 168. What things does the local surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Belsize Park ?

Any number of issues that can impact on house prices like the structural condition of the building or whether the property is sold under probate. It may help to set against house values recorded in Belsize Park for comparable properties.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £2, 029, 768, which is £24, 400 less than the asking price. The average factoring in houses and flats was £916, 021. Nutley Cottage, Nutley Terrace, London, Camden, Greater London, NW3 5BX a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £965, 000 .

The most accurate way to get a formal house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default.

The surveyor will always actually visit the property in addition to factoring in the myriad of issues that can affect property prices.
