HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Cheam and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Cheam property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Cheam property's condition along with advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I want to purchase a house in SM3 for around £310, 542. What considerations will a Cheam RICS surveyor consider when carrying out a Home Survey ?

There are a great number of factors that can affect the price of property ranging from whether work needs to be to the property to whether there is a flying freehold. It is useful to weigh up prices against house prices registered at the Land Registry for similar houses.

The average house price registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £331, 542, which is £21, 000 more than the amount being asked. The combined house/flat average was £273, 395. 160, Church Hill Road, Sutton, Sutton, Greater London, SM3 8NF a semi detached property was purchased for £361, 000 .

The best way for you to get a formal property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as standard. A RICS chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a boundary wall) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the survey. To work out an accurate estimate of the value of the building your surveyor will factor in local Cheam market factors as well as other factors about the property for instance: style of architecture The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and will draw upon other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been used. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. It will also be assumed that there are no significant legal problems for example consent for alteration having been given and complied with. Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancing solicitor.

Further Cheam assumptions like services, are made in addition to environmental problems like pig farms, which will also be factored in.

Conservation area

Are there any issues we would be advised to look into if planning to buy a period property in Cheam in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local councils.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and the effect may have on the property and its value. The price of property will probably be significantly higher as a result of the areas being largely unspoilt However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in shoddy condition for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

RICS surveyors are expected advise whether the building looks like it may be classified as such and Section I of your Cheam Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are carried out by your conveyancer. Unconsented extensions to the property may also be advised in your survey, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.
