HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Sidcup and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Sidcup property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our property surveyor check for flooding damage, or if other houses on the street have been affected?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: The Met Office), and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Less expensive preventative measures include air brick covers, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

House Prices

Is £187, 142 a reasonable price to be buying a property in Sidcup in DA14 for and what will the qualified RICS surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Sidcup ?
