HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Welling and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Welling property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give a thorough analysis of the Welling property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Monk bond maintenance advice for the Tudor property we're buying?

Brick-constructed flats do benefit from many advantages. However, they can also indicate diverse problems, from moisture damage to badly applied render.

A defect often found is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. Contact Preston Precision Brickwork for a repairs estimate at 07547 534446 or 9 Woodfield, Bamber Bridge, Preston, PR5 8EB.

As an example, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the thirties house I am hoping to acquire I noticed that there was some evidence of an overload of the fuses; will a Homebuyer Report in Welling report on electrical defects?

When conducting a Welling Home Survey a qualified surveyor should usually comment on the condition of the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory condition. He or she is required to focus on concerns such as examining the condition of fixed appliances like storage radiators or the condition residual circuit breakers (RCD). Verifying the location of the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey.

House Prices

We have found a property in DA16 on with a local agent for £231, 000. What will the qualified surveyor evaluate when valuing house prices in Welling ?

Any number of issues which could positively or negatively affect property values for example the total square meterage of the home or the status of the central heating. It may help to weigh up prices against prices achieved in Welling at the same time for similar properties.

The means house prices registered at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £240, 500, which is £9, 500 more than the amount you are paying. The combined house/flat average was £231, 469. 9, Peters Close, Welling, Bexley, Greater London, DA16 3LL a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £430, 000 .

An impartial way to get a formal property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service. A local surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

A surveyor should attend the house in addition to factoring in the long list of location factors that can impact on house prices.
