HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Southall property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you book a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Southall property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

English Heritage

We are intending to purchase a home near Windmill Bridge , will this affect the property's value?

Deteriorated timber

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Southall property what effect will a Condition rating 2 have on 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' ?

Problems impacting the roof are checked here. These are inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Both bargeboards, and general verge details, will be covered. Metal sidings which are not earthed correctly is an example. Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. 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.

House Prices

I am planning to acquire a house in UB2 for an asking price of £301, 270. What will a Southall chartered surveyor consider on a survey ?

There are a great number of factors which could affect property values ranging from the amount of service charges payable to whether there are any conservation area infringements. As an indicator, one can try to compare with house prices achieved in the area for similar houses.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £291, 670, which is £9, 600 less than the amount you are intending to pay and the flat/house average was £262, 750. 14A, Tensing Road, Southall, Ealing, Greater London, UB2 4PY a semi detached property sold for £235, 000 .

The most reliable way to get a professional property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as a core component. Your qualified surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.
