HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Elmers End and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Elmers End property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Elmers End property's condition as well as including information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

House Prices

I am going to buy a flat in BR3. It is on the market for £198, 634. What will a surveyor take into account when carrying out a professional valuation ?

There is a vast array of things that might affect house prices from existence of building regulations for modifications to whether it has any outdoor space. One method is to benchmark prices values registered at the Land Registry for similar properties. The mean flat price registered in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £189, 434, which is £9, 200 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The house/flat average was £315, 699. Cotman Court, 9, Flat 3, Sheridan Way, Beckenham, Bromley, Greater London, BR3 4TL a leasehold flat sold for £200, 000 .

In order to get an independent home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as standard.

Traditionally built property

What should we pay attention to when purchasing a house built in around 1730 in Elmers End? Will the age of the house be a problem?

Many buyers plan to buy a old, characterful home one day. For traditionally-built Elmers End property, age, however, can worry purchasers, and Buildings employing traditional methods can be difficult to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Especially for a home in one of Elmers End's conservation areas, Materials suitable for the work may be required.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown a property we are interested to move into we saw that there were damaged electrical sockets, will the Elmers End surveyor advise on the electrical system condition?

When performing a Building Survey in Elmers End the surveyor should report on the overall electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in a poor condition. This will include a visual inspection (without removing any fittings) of any uncovered sections of the wiring or fusebox and other possible problems relating to things like verifying the state of the fixed appliances e.g. water heaters or ensuring supplementary bonding is in the usual place. Inspecting the evidence of the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician on the building should form part of the survey in Elmers End.
