HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in South Norwood and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the South Norwood property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the South Norwood property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

We have found a detached house close to SE25 priced at £248, 644. What considerations will a local surveyor consider when calculating house prices in South Norwood on a home buyers survey ?

There is a near endless list of things that might affect house prices, for example the state of the roof or the number of bedrooms in the property. It often helps to weigh up prices against prices recorded in South Norwood for similar houses.

This means house prices recorded at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £234, 544, which is £14, 100 less than the amount you are paying. The house/flat average was £191, 957. 206, Selhurst Road, London, Croydon, Greater London, SE25 6XU a detached property was purchased for £480, 000 .

In order to get a formal home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service. A RICS chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

The qualified surveyor should attend the home in addition to allowing for the myriad of issues affecting house prices.

Damage resulting from flooding

When buying in South Norwood, should we be concerned about a flood risk, and will the South Norwood surveyor inquire into indications of flood damage?

Flooding in South Norwood can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. The house survey may also, where appropriate, advise appropriate repairs.Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

In the region of South Norwood, the Chaffinch Brook and St James Stream at Elmers End and Upper Elmers End, including South Norwood Country Park, London Boroughs of Bromley and Croydon status on 2/11/11 (source: Environment Agency).

Conservation area

Are there any factors we would be advised to be conscious of if buying a flat in South Norwood inside a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas in the UK which are designated by local authorities. Surveyors in South Norwood must possess relevant knowledge of local factors and any effect may have on the building and its value. Property values will be higher due to conservation areas being largely unspoilt However a growing number have fallen into shoddy condition e.g. unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

RICS surveyors will advise if the property is/might be classified as such and Section I of a South Norwood Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are carried out during the legal process. Unapproved extensions to the property will also be reported in the South Norwood survey but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.
