HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Lower Clapton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Lower Clapton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations on the Lower Clapton property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Lower Clapton property's state of repair in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a property in Lower Clapton but are worried about insects - What advice should we get?

Scare stories about house pest problems are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as wasps as minor annoyances. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Signs may not be obvious, for example, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Treatment for a serious infestation may include professional cleaning or removal or excision of affected timber. If you believe wasps, or any pest, may be present, request that your chartered surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

House Prices

There is a Terraced house in E5 on with a local agent for £566, 300. What different issues will your qualified surveyor evaluate when valuing house prices in Lower Clapton ?

There is a vast array of things which could positively or negatively affect property values for example the quality of nearby schools or the status of the central heating. It can help to weigh up prices against house prices registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties.

The average house price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £541, 300, which is £25, 000 less than the asking price (£374, 350 was the blended house/flat average). 44, Chailey Street, London, Hackney, Greater London, E5 0RX a Terraced property went for £670, 000 .

In order for home buyers to get an accurate home valued is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default.

A professional qualified RICS surveyor will visit the home as well as factoring in the countless location variables that can impact on property prices.

Conservation area

Are there any issues we should be conscious of if planning to buy a building in Lower Clapton in a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Your surveyor need to have relevant knowledge of relevant local factors and any relation they have on the building and its value. Property Prices will likely be more than prices outside the area because of them being preserved. However many of them are falling into have fallen into a state e.g. out of keeping extensions

Property surveyors will tell you whether the property is/might be in a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are raised during the legal process. Unauthorised modifications to the building will also be advised in your survey, however these should be concern for the solicitor.
