HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Soho and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Soho property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Soho property's state of repair and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Soho, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the loft - Should we get a RICS surveyor?

Purchasers should know that is not a requirement that a seller report on an infestation. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Remedies to pests can include traps or removal of infected furniture. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing an old converted barn. Will the age of the building be a concern?

For houses in Soho built before the 20th Century, age can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Buildings built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to maintain. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for Soho listed buildings, Construction materials, such as stone quarried in the Soho area, may be required.

House Prices

I want to acquire a house in Soho (WC2H). The vendor is asking £4, 003, 400. What things does the Soho qualified RICS surveyor evaluate when carrying out a professional valuation ?

There are a great number of factors that can affect property values ranging from the legality of extensions to whether the property is listed. It often helps to consider house values recorded in the same area for similar properties.

The average house price paid between July and October in 2012 was £4, 000, 000, which is £3, 400 less than the amount being asked. The combined house/flat average was £1, 047, 726. 17, Meard Street, London, City Of Westminster, Greater London, W1F 0EU a Terraced property sold for £4, 000, 000 .

The most accurate way to get a formal property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default. A RICS chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme.

A RICS chartered surveyor should attend the home in addition to allowing for the countless area variables affecting the value of property.
