HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Bromley and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Bromley property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Bromley property's condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when purchasing a property near to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including commercial waste material. Nobody would want to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries include structurally instability. Health issues for example abdominal wall problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Bromley RICS surveyors will notice structural issues connected with the site. Your solicitor will commission conveyancing searches of the British Geological database as well as Bromley Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

House Prices

Is £231, 094 in the right area amount to buy a property in Bromley in BR1 for and what will a Bromley RICS chartered surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Bromley ?

There is a near endless list of things that can add to or subtract from property values like the length of lease (and unexpired lease term) or the likelihood of development occurring nearby. One method is to look at values achieved in the area for comparable properties. The average flat price recorded at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £209, 994, which is £21, 100 less than the price you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £297, 596. 117, Flat 2, Widmore Road, Bromley, Bromley, Greater London, BR1 3AH sold for £185, 000 .

In order for home buyers to get an independent property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as standard.

Chimney stacks

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Bromley what could a Condition rating 3 mean for 'E1 - Chimney stacks' ?

Quite a common example is loose, missing or deteriorated mortar. Chimney stacks will be checked thoroughly where appropriate. An apartment may not need such an inspection.

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give home buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of how concerning each aspect of the report is. A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. They can include defects which compromise the structural integrity of a house or flat. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.
