HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Stanmore and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Stanmore property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Stanmore property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rainfall an issue in Stanmore?

Both in Stanmore, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on Stanmore houses are overlooked. One indication that rainwater goods are a cause for concern is rotten roofing elements. If you are worried, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

The good news is that drainage problems are generally easy to resolve, if caught early. If disregarded, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the unmodernised property we are meaning to purchase, it looked like there were damaged electrical sockets - does a Stanmore Homebuyer Report go into detail on the electrics?

During a Building Survey in Stanmore your surveyor will usually report on the electrical system if it is clear that they are in a less than satisfactory condition. A professional surveyor is trained to report on concerns such as checking the condition of fitted electrical appliances, for example heaters or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of light fittings and switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician on the property being surveyed should form part of the survey in Stanmore.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers recommend that a PIR should be carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

House Prices

There is a detached property in HA7 in Stanmore priced at £569, 612. What considerations will a surveyor consider when valuing house prices in Stanmore on a property valuation report ?

There are a great number of factors which could positively or negatively affect house prices such as plumbing problems or the architectural style of the property. It is useful to compare with the prices of house achieved in the area for similar properties.

The means house prices paid between July and October in 2012 was £542, 412, which is £27, 200 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The average for houses and flats combined was £437, 014. 6, Embry Way, Stanmore, Harrow, Greater London, HA7 3AZ a detached home sold for £690, 000 .

An impartial way for home buyers to get an independent property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as standard. Your qualified surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).
