HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Kilburn Park and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Kilburn Park property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer comprehensive details of the Kilburn Park property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am buying an older warehouse conversion in Kilburn Park. Will the property's age be a concern?

Many buyers in Kilburn Park have looked at purchasing a unique or characterful property. A building's age, however, can sometimes be an issue, and Kilburn Park homes built using traditional methods can be expensive to upkeep. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. Mention this to the surveyor for more detail.

House Prices

We are planning to be investing in a semi detached house in Kilburn Park (NW6) which is being marketed for £1, 130, 981. What things does a qualified RICS surveyor consider when valuing house prices in Kilburn Park ?

There are many factors that can affect property values for example whether there are any restrictive covenants or if there is any evidence of fungal decay. It often helps to look at prices achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties.

This means house prices paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £1, 120, 681, which is £10, 300 less than the price you are intending to pay. The average factoring in houses and flats was £503, 986. 52, Flat, Salusbury Road, London, Brent, Greater London, NW6 6NN a semi detached property sold for £400, 000 .

The only way to get an accurate and professional property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report by default. Your RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

The RICS surveyor should go to the property as well as allowing for the long list of location factors that can affect values.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can a Home Buyers Survey investigate this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a house's foundations can create difficulties. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including severe changes in the water table level. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. Visible results may be anything from small cracks in the bedroom wall to a difficult-to-open bedroom window. There is a real benefit in booking a Kilburn Park surveyor to carry out your HomeBuyer Report, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand.
