HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Gerrards Cross and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Gerrards Cross property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Gerrards Cross property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice get a Gerrards Cross Home Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Gas flame

Will the chartered surveyor look into the safety of the gas appliances?

A chartered surveyor will locate and visually survey any accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect whether the meter is in an escape route for example, as well as gas affiliated appliances or installations such as chimney linings. However, the Gerrards Cross surveyor won't remove any external fittings or housings and surveyors are not qualified to conduct any tests whatsoever on the gas system. You should never attempt to fix gas fittings your self as it is potentially hazardous, should there be any worries about gas of any type, call a gas engineer immediately.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we check gutters?

I find it odd that the impact rainfall can have on Gerrards Cross property is not given the attention it deserves by purchasers. For instance, mildew or damp in the roof strongly suggest that the rainwater goods are at risk.

Fortunately, guttering issues are quite easy to resolve for a reasonable cost, unless they are left untreated. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

House Prices

There is a potentially interesting investment flat close to SL9 on with a local agent for £496, 233. What things will a Gerrards Cross RICS chartered surveyor take into account when valuing house prices in Gerrards Cross ?

There is a near endless list of things that can add to or subtract from the price of property like the likelihood of getting planning permission to extend or whether the garden is overlooked. It is useful to set against prices recorded in the same area for comparable properties. The mean flat price registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £468, 333, which is £27, 900 less than the asking price. The average for houses and flats was £1, 006, 895. 2C, Station Road, Gerrards Cross, South Bucks, Buckinghamshire, SL9 8EL sold for £290, 000 .

The only way to get a formal home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as an integral component. A local surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

The qualified surveyor will always attend the home as well as allowing for the myriad of location related influences that can impact on house prices.
