HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Hampton Wick and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Hampton Wick property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Hampton Wick property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I would like to purchase a house in Hampton Wick. What will the surveyor take into account when carrying out a valuation ?

There are many factors that can add to or subtract from house prices from location of nearby transport links to whether it has any outdoor space. .

The most reliable way to get a formal house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as standard. Your surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme.

A professional qualified RICS surveyor will attend the building as well as allowing for the long list of area variables that might affect property prices.

Stone block wall damage

Can structures partially constructed with stone cause issues for the owner? What potential issues should we be aware of?

There are several of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. This may also require careful attention. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings. If you are planning to renovate, consider that services to match stone types are available. Contact the British Geological Survey for more detail. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a retaining wall)

The Homebuyer Report contains a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. In order to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building the surveyor will take into account knowledge of Hampton Wick and other factors relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. The valuer will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon key assumptions, for example there being no serious defects.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

It will be assumed that there aren't any costly legal issues such as Rights of access and egress over all communal areas. Such concerns will be unravelled by your solicitor.

Further area assumptions, such as use of parking or connection to sewers, are made in addition to environmental concerns like brine mining activity, which will also be factored in.
