HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Lee and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Lee property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Lee property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the building I am interested to lease, it appeared that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses; does Lee Homebuyer Report give details on on electrical defects?

When carrying out a Lee Homebuyer Report your RICS surveyor will usually make a note on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in a hazardous state of repair.

This should include a non invasive look-over of any uncovered sections of the wiring or fusebox on top of things like ascertaining the condition of any fitted electrical appliances like heaters or checking the condition of a sample of light fittings.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey in Lee.

The IEE strongly advise that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be conducted every ten years (or every 5 if renting out).

House Prices

What is the right ball park amount to buy a property in for. What will a Lee qualified surveyor allow for in the process of a RICS valuation ?

There are many factors which could positively or negatively affect the price of property such as the structural condition of the building or the condition of shared common parts. .

An impartial way for you to get an accurate property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as an inclusive part. A qualified surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

A professional qualified RICS surveyor will always attend the property as well as considering the countless location related influences that might affect house prices.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Lee. What will we need to look out for when purchasing a house built in around 1730? What consequences will the property's cruck frame have on regular maintenance?

Many buyers in Lee hope to own a home with character. Vernacular architecture, however, can be problematic. Lee structures showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be challenging to maintain. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Construction materials, such as matching tiles, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Lee listed buildings. This may mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller. Contact the surveyor for more detail.
