HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in White City and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the White City property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the White City property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the White City surveyor give details on the state of repair of the gas appliances?

A surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as the location of the meter where relevant, as well as gas associated fixtures such as balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. External fittings or housings won't actually be taken off. Gas is potentially dangerous, should you have any worries about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to get a full structural survey if purchasing a un-loved Edwardian cottage near White City as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes referred to as a Full Structural Survey, this survey is no longer offered and this most technical survey has been given a new moniker by RICS and the correct name is now the Building Survey. If looking into purchasing a modified property e.g. a poor condition house in White City - this is now the best RICS survey to do. Usually within 2 to 3 days after a thorough inspection of the accessible areas of the house, a formal report will be forwarded to the client going through comprehensive and serious advice concerning the state of repair of the house.

There will be several limitations with any residential survey insofar as a local surveyor is not in a position to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the fabric of the White City building e.g. lifting up fitted carpets.

House Prices

Is £894, 100 a good amount to be buying a Terraced house in W12 in White City for. What will the surveyor evaluate when conducting a property valuation report ?

There is a near endless list of things that can affect the price of property for instance the existence of damp or the modernity of the kitchen. It is useful to analyse prices recorded in the same area for similar properties.

The average house price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £893, 000, which is £1, 100 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The average for houses and flats was £491, 417. 41D, Stanlake Road, London, Hammersmith And Fulham, Greater London, W12 7HG a Terraced property sold for £330, 000 .

In order for you to get a formal home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a formal valuation as standard. A surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

A professional qualified surveyor will visit the building as well as allowing for the long list of area issues that might affect house prices.
