HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in West Hill and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the West Hill property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the West Hill property's condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in West Hill, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What aspects of the roofing will be reported on?

This often causes anxiety for West Hill home buyers who know how costly roofing work can be. A large number of properties may be exposed to problems like dry rot. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from roof battens to dormer windows, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Repairs to a dilapidated roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a West Hill roofing specialist can provide one.

House Prices

Is £548, 058 in the right ball park price to buy a house in SW19 for and what things does the RICS surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in West Hill ?

There are many factors which could affect property values such as whether correct consents are in place or if it is near a potential development. You can try to look at values achieved in the nearby area for similar properties.

This means house prices registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £576, 858, which is £28, 800 more than the amount the vendor is asking for. The average for houses and flats combined was £301, 127. The Pleasaunce, Inner Park Road, London, Wandsworth, Greater London, SW19 6DZ a detached property was purchased for £804, 700 .

The best way for home buyers to get an impartial property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report in West Hill which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service. A RICS chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a garage)

West Hill Homebuyer Reports a valuation and a "reinstatement cost". To be able to determine the value of the property your surveyor will take into account awareness of the West Hill property market and other factors relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. Surveyors also reflect on certain fixtures and fittings and use key assumptions, for example there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected. Surveyors will ignore certain things like furnishings.

Additional local area conjectures like service connections, are made in addition to local environmental problems like the property being underneath a flight path, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
