HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Redhill and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Redhill property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Redhill property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there could be some brown asbestos roof tiles affecting the house. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially fatal material formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials such as cement.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent sound absorption qualities and it may be found in ceilings. Technically all forms are hazardous and might lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods. Its existence does not necessarily constitute a risk to health.

If found, care should be taken not to break asbestos and professional advice must be taken urgently. You should never try to disturb it yourself. Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. However they will report on possible asbestos during the Redhill survey and will offer advice.

House Prices

Is £205, 114 the right sort of price to be buying a flat in RH1 in Redhill for. What considerations will a Redhill qualified surveyor evaluate on a survey ?

A myriad of factors exist that can add to or subtract from property values such as the quality of nearby schools or the amount of accommodation it offers. It is useful to consider flat prices achieved in the area for comparable properties. The average flat price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £176, 614, which is £28, 500 less than the amount you are paying. The average factoring in houses and flats was £258, 780. 18, Stychens Close, Bletchingley, Redhill, Tandridge, Surrey, RH1 4NY a leasehold flat recently sold for £163, 000 .

The most reliable way for you to get a formal home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as an inclusive part. Your chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme.

A qualified RICS surveyor should visit the home as well as considering the wealth of area issues that can impact on values.

Chimney stacks

In a Redhill HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E1 - Chimney stacks' refer to?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike some more complex survey reports. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of to what extent each defect requires attention. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the house or flat. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed.

In Redhill, examples include inadequate combustible clearances in the flue. Elements of the property reviewed by Section E are visually inspected if the roof is difficult to access.
