Conservation area

Will there be any problems I would be advised to check out when purchasing a building in Walton On Thames inside a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by local councils. Your surveyor need to possess sufficient knowledge of local considerations and the relation they have on the property and its value. House prices are usually inflated owing to them being in their original state. However many of them are falling into have fallen into a poor state e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

Property surveyors are trained to note whether the location looks like it may be within a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Walton On Thames Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised during the legal process. Unapproved modifications to the property may be advised but these are really more a concern for your lawyer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees e.g legal fees) and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report includes an independent valuation and also a cost of reinstatement. To be able to determine the property's value the valuer will take into account local Walton On Thames market factors and other factors relating to the property e.g. style of architecture The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will make certain key assumptions such as the ground is not land filled.

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 valuation is also on the basis that there are no costly legal issues for example proper access over pathways. Such concerns will be clarified by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Additional local area conjectures, like service connections, are made in addition to local environmental problems like busy roads, which will also be factored in.
