HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Walham Green and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Walham Green property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Walham Green property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a property and the agent has informed us that it has been partially constructed with stone. Are there any major related issues that we should be aware of?

Purchasers in Walham Green should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Defects affecting stone-built property in Walham Green can vary, spalling brick being relatively common.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more

damage. If you are planning to renovate, consider that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

To request additional information, speak to a Walham Green specialist. For example, Stone Age Ltd, Parsons Green La, London, SW6 4HH (Tel: 020 7384 9090) may help.

House Prices

There is a property in SW6 priced at £1, 371, 161. What will the Walham Green surveyor allow for when valuing house prices in Walham Green on a property valuation report ?

There are a great number of factors which could affect the price of property such as the existence of any restrictions over use of the property or the number of bathrooms. One method is to set against house prices achieved in the area for similar properties.

The means house prices paid in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £1, 345, 261, which is £25, 900 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £834, 786. 122A, Cheyne Walk, London, Kensington And Chelsea, Greater London, SW10 0ES a detached home sold for £2, 370, 000 .

The only way to get an accurate and professional property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default. Your qualified surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme.

A professional surveyor will always actually visit the property as well as allowing for the large variety of area items that can affect the value of property.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to investigate when buying older property? Will upkeep costs be higher?

Vernacular architecture can create issues for homeowners, and Walham Green houses showcasing traditional methods can be a chore to repair. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of , for example, a Grade II listed house.
