HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Sundridge Park and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Sundridge Park property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension on the property, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Sundridge Park property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Sundridge Park what does 'E9' include?

This category is used for external elements that require reporting that do not fit elsewhere in Section E. Your surveyor can provide more details if required. Insect damage or rot to a conservatory roof, for example, would be reported here.

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike some more complex survey reports. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what will it include?

The Homebuyer Report includes an independent valuation as well as a cost of reinstatement included in the cost of the survey. To work out the market value the surveyor will call upon area knowledge and other factors relating to the property e.g. general condition. The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will use key assumptions such as the building connected to mains services such as electricity.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there is an absence of any problematic legal issues for example the property being sold with vacant possession. Advice should be sought from your conveyancer.

Further Sundridge Park conjectures like problematic roads and access, are made in addition to any environmental problems like industrial buildings, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

House Prices

Is £158, 100 a good price to pay for a property located in BR1 in Sundridge Park for and what things does a surveyor consider in the process of a property valuation report ?

There is a near endless list of things that might affect house prices e.g. the existence of double glazing or the size of bedrooms (single/double).

The average for houses and flats was £228, 947. 237, Flat F, Downham Way, Bromley, Lewisham, Greater London, BR1 5EL sold for £175, 000 .

An impartial way for home buyers to get a formal property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as part of the service. Your local surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

The qualified RICS surveyor will visit the building in addition to allowing for the large variety of area variables that have a bearing on values.
