HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Harmondsworth and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Harmondsworth property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Harmondsworth property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a property in UB7 on with a local agent for £138, 400. What different issues will your surveyor consider when valuing house prices in Harmondsworth on a RICS valuation ?

There is a vast array of things that can add to or subtract from the price of property for instance the homes proximity to contaminated land or if it is near a potential development. One method is to put side by side flat prices achieved in the nearby area for similar flats. The mean flat price completed between July and October in 2012 was £135, 000, which is £3, 400 less than the amount you are intending to pay (£213, 667 was the blended house/flat average). Kings Court, 575, Flat 1, Bath Road, West Drayton, Hillingdon, Greater London, UB7 0EH a leasehold flat sold for £135, 000 .

An impartial way for home buyers to get an independent home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as standard.

A local surveyor will always actually visit the property in addition to allowing for the multiple area variables affecting property prices.

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor examine the condition of the gas mains supply?

Yes. A RICS chartered surveyor will visually check the accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at gas (and oil heaters) for example, as well as gas associated fittings e.g. flue/chimney maintenance. However, the Harmondsworth RICS surveyor will not remove any gas fittings and he or she won't do any tests on the appliances or system. Of course, gas is potentially deadly and if there are any concerns about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Concerns include structurally instability. Health issues for example congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Harmondsworth will find structural defects linked to the site. Your lawyer will commission environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as Hillingdon Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
