HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Cudham and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Cudham property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Cudham property's general condition as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a property in TN16 in Cudham priced at £179, 675. What things does a Cudham surveyor consider when valuing house prices in Cudham ?

There is a vast array of things which could have a bearing on property values for example any number of structural defects or the architectural style of the property. It is useful to set against flat prices achieved in Cudham at the same time for similar flats. The mean flat price registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £164, 375, which is £15, 300 less than the selling price. The average factoring in houses and flats was £271, 793. Douglas Court, Flat 22, Main Road, Biggin Hill, Westerham, Bromley, Greater London, TN16 3LQ a leasehold flat sold for £175, 000 .

An impartial way for home buyers to get an impartial house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR)

by default. Your surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

The local surveyor should actually visit the house in addition to factoring in all other things that can affect the value of property.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the house surveyor check for signs of water damage?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record, and the value of a property in an at-risk area may be impacted.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. properly constructed drainage. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a property survey if the surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property is at risk.

No recent Cudham flood warnings have been made (source: Environment Agency).

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a concern of asbestos boilers present in property. What is asbestos and is there a danger?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous structured mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials such as roof tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic including tensile strength properties, it may be found in roof gutters. Technically all forms including white are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken not to disturb the asbestos and professional advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos during a Cudham building survey. They will mention suspected asbestos and will inform you of the options.
