HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in East Sheen and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the East Sheen property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the East Sheen property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all East Sheen surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing a garage) and how does the surveyor work it out?

The Homebuyer Report contains a property valuation in addition to a "reinstatement cost" as an integral part of the report. In order to determine an accurate value estimate your surveyor will call upon awareness of the East Sheen property market and other things about the property e.g. general condition Surveyors also evaluate construction type and draw upon other assumptions such as there are no dangerous materials. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local East Sheen area conjectures, like service connections, are made as well as any significant local environmental problems like mining activity, which will also be factored in.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

House Prices

I am planning to purchase a property in SW14 for an asking price of £314, 036. What factors will East Sheen qualified surveyor take into account when carrying out a survey ?

There are many factors that can add to or subtract from house prices ranging from noise from flight paths to the over all desirability of the street. It often helps to benchmark prices values achieved in the area for similar properties. The average flat price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £341, 136, which is £27, 100 more than the amount the vendor is asking for. The average for houses and flats was £645, 406. Lincoln Lodge, 4, 11, Wadham Mews, London, Richmond Upon Thames, Greater London, SW14 7DA was purchased for £370, 000 .

An impartial way for you to get a professional house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as a core component.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we would need to be conscious of when buying a property in East Sheen inside a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas in the UK which are governed by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors need to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local considerations and any connection they have on the home and its value. House prices is, more often than not, higher than non conservation area equivalents because of the areas being preserved. However a large number have fallen into poor condition e.g. ugly satellite dishes

RICS surveyors can be expected to inform you whether the building might be is designated and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are conducted by your conveyancer. Out of keeping changes that do not have Local Authority approval should be noted in the survey but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor. A S Croxson are based in 216 Sheen Lane, Richmond upon Thames, London, SW14 8LB will be happy to give you some pointers. Tel: 0208 998 3097
