What Survey is the correct choice for my prospective house purchase in Chinatown?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    The RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice when planning to buy a home constructed from standard materials i.e. tile and brick, in reasonable order and built in the last 100 years.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Chinatown and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Chinatown property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the property, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Chinatown property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled home in Chinatown. Are there specific potential issues to bear in mind?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include cracks. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Chinatown buildings, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for elements such as the junctions of external walls. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

House Prices

Is £574, 827 in the right area price to pay for a property in EC2A in Chinatown for and what considerations will a Chinatown qualified RICS surveyor evaluate when carrying out a professional valuation ?

There are many factors that can affect property values e.g. the existence of any restrictions over use of the property or overall area pricing. One method is to set against values registered at the Land Registry for similar properties. The average flat price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £560, 427, which is £14, 400 less than the amount you are intending to pay. 7, Fifth Floor Flat 22, Leonard Street, London, Islington, Greater London, EC2A 4AN sold for £161, 200 .

The most reliable way to get a formal house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part. A qualified surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

Traditionally built property

What should we pay attention to when purchasing an older property in Chinatown? What consequences will the home's design have on upkeep?

Some purchasers hope to own a home with character, such as a Georgian terrace. Use of traditional methods, however, can concern buyers. Buildings featuring traditional methods can be expensive to maintain. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work.
