HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Tower Hill and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Tower Hill property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give comprehensive details of the Tower Hill property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on flats 1

I am acquiring a shabby Edwardian flat property in Tower Hill, should I spend a bit more on a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey is now reclassified as a Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report will suffice for a post 1950s Tower Hill property of typical construction materials. A Building Survey is the most relevant type of survey in relation to the flat mentioned. Once a thorough site survey of the inside and outside of the flat a written report (digital and written copy) will be sent to the buyer summarising thorough and critical professional advice in relation to the construction of the building. There are a few limitations with a property survey as a surveyor will not be able to (unless owners consent provided) open up the fabric of the of the Tower Hill property such as removing secured panels. Additionally flats often mean access to the building can be prevented and the surveyor can only look into the area

within identifiable boundary of the flat,, he may advise on shared parts like e.g. the roof. For more information and a comparison of the differences between surveys please read Survey comparison table.

Conservation area

Are there any issues we need to be wary of if intending to buy a converted house in Tower Hill in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by the local council. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of relevant local area factors and the connection they have with the building and its value. The value of homes tends to be significantly higher owing to the areas retaining their original character. However many have fallen into a state of neglect for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors are expected inform you if the home looks like it may be classified as such and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are conducted during the legal process. Unapproved adjustments to the building may also be advised, however these should be concern for your legal adviser. Serenity Law Llp are a local firm situated at 150 Minories, City of London, London, EC3N 1LS should be happy to advise further. Tel: 0800 019 7773

External walls
