HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Shoreditch and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Shoreditch property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Shoreditch property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a flat located in N1 in Shoreditch on with a local agent for £393, 274. What will the RICS surveyor evaluate when valuing house prices in Shoreditch on a RICS valuation ?

There are a huge number of issues that can add to or subtract from the price of property for example the likelihood of getting planning permission to extend or the local crime statistics. As an indicator, one can try to analyse flat prices registered at the Land Registry for similar flats. The mean flat price paid in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £386, 774, which is £6, 500 less than the amount you are paying. Enfield Cloisters, Flat 77, Fanshaw Street, London, Hackney, Greater London, N1 6LD a leasehold apartment recently sold for £237, 500 .

The most cost effective way for you to get an independent property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report by default.

A professional local surveyor will always attend the property as well as allowing for the variety of things that can affect the value of property.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a structure with a converted attic in Shoreditch. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What should we keep an eye out for during the investigation?

Local property in otherwise fine condition could feature damage to the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. clay tiles. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Shoreditch, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the building surveyors will look for a range of signs, including literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

The expense of felting a flat roof, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the thirties house I am intending to move into I saw that there were damaged electrical sockets, does a Homebuyer Report in Shoreditch advise electrical defects?

When performing a Shoreditch Home Survey your RICS surveyor will typically make a note on the overall electrical system if it appears that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state of repair. He or she should also provide detail on things like checking the condition of visible wiring. Inspecting the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property should form part of the Homebuyer report in Shoreditch. A check for the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by an electrician should form part of the survey in Shoreditch .

The Institute of Electrical Engineers recommend that a Periodic Inspection Report should be carried out every ten years (5 if letting).
