HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Bromley By Bow and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Bromley By Bow property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Bromley By Bow property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it that we investigate guttering? And could it affect the property value?

Both in Bromley By Bow, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately this issue is not given the attention it deserves by buyers. For example, rotten wooden gutters can often mean that the gutters are blocked. Blocked rainwater goods can result in hazardous mould.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to

resolve, if caught early, unless they are not cared for. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

House Prices

I intend to buy a property in Bromley By Bow. What will the Bromley By Bow qualified RICS surveyor allow for when conducting a RICS valuation ?

There are many factors which could positively or negatively affect house prices from the general economy to the property's proximity to a conservation area. .

An impartial way for home buyers to get an accurate and professional home valued is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as part of the service. Your qualified RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

What should I be fearful of when buying a house close to a rubbish tip
