HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Hadley Wood and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Hadley Wood property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Hadley Wood property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am buying an old converted cow-house. Will maintenance costs be higher?

For houses in Hadley Wood built before the 20th Century, age can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Property featuring traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Hadley Wood listed buildings. This may mean long-term upkeep. Discuss this with the surveyor for more detail.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report includes an independent valuation in addition to a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To properly appraise the correct valuation the valuer will factor in knowledge of Hadley Wood and other things about the property e.g. style of architecture The valuer will also consider materials used and will draw upon key assumptions like the property is connected to mains services such as water. Surveyors don't value things like sales incentives.

Further Hadley Wood conjectures, for example issues with access, are made as well as any significant Hadley Wood environmental issues like flood plains, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this home is located by a brook. Is there a major flood risk? Would our Hadley Wood surveyor investigate any water damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of home owners in Hadley Wood and across the country, and home purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the residence or on adjacent sites. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

No recent Hadley Wood flood alerts have been given (source: Environment Agency).
