Which Home Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Waltham Abbey

    The Homebuyer Report is the right choice when buying a home built from standard materials i.e. brick and tile, not dilapidated and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Waltham Abbey

    The RICS Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Waltham Abbey) is also conducted by a MRICS/FRICS qualified surveyor and is more comprehensive. Choose this when buying a non standard property such as timber wall or older buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Waltham Abbey

    This is an impartial valuation of the property. It is usually chosen by mortgage free buyers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Waltham Abbey and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Waltham Abbey property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Waltham Abbey property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

I intend to acquire a detached house in EN9, being marketed for £326, 111. What will the Waltham Abbey surveyor take into account when carrying out a professional valuation ?

There are a huge number of issues that might affect house prices ranging from whether it is freehold, leasehold or share of freehold to the architectural style of the property. It can help to put side by side house values achieved in the area for similar properties.

This means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £313, 611, which is £12, 500 less than the amount you are intending to pay and the flat/house average was £274, 066. 30, Pecks Hill, Nazeing, Waltham Abbey, Epping Forest, Essex, EN9 2NY a detached property sold for £180, 000 .

The only way for home buyers to get an impartial house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as part of the service.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a home in Waltham Abbey, does the house surveyor search for flood damage?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: ITN), and house purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. An awareness of characteristics of the Waltham Abbey area likely to affect the property also enables the house surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The house surveyor may ask the occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
