HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Crayford and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Crayford property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Crayford property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to go for a full structural survey when investing in a abandoned Edwardian property in Crayford rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Regularly and incorrectly referred to as a Structural Survey by agents and buyers alike, it is no longer offered and has been superseded by RICS and the proper name is actually now the Building Survey. If purchasing a modified Crayford house e.g. a period house, it is now the most appropriate choice of home survey. The report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) should outline thorough and salient details concerning the property's construction in addition to any maintenance needs after a thorough inspection of the accessible areas.

. External buildings will typically be assessed.

House Prices

We are intend to be buying a semi detached property near DA1. The asking price is £207, 908. What considerations will a local surveyor consider when valuing house prices in Crayford ?

There are a great number of factors that can add to or subtract from house prices such as the existence of any restrictions over use of the property or whether the home is landlocked. One method is to benchmark selling prices recorded in Crayford for comparable properties.

The average house price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £200, 908, which is £7, 000 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £182, 547. 4, Ambrose Close, Crayford, Dartford, Bexley, Greater London, DA1 4TS a semi detached property sold for £305, 000 .

The most reliable way to get an independent home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as a core component. Your RICS chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme.

A chartered surveyor will always attend the property as well as factoring in the multiple variables that have a bearing on the value of property.

Chimney stacks

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Crayford house or flat, can you give some examples of Condition rating 2 defects for chimney stacks?

Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2. In contrast to more serious, 'red' rated, defects, these issues do not require immediate attention. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Crayford house or flat being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed. Section E elements are reviewed visually from ground level if the roof is difficult to access. A sloping chimney cap is an example of a Section E defect.
