HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Croxley Green and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Croxley Green property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Croxley Green property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What should we pay attention to when buying an older property in Croxley Green? Will repairs costs be higher?

Many purchasers have looked at purchasing a home with character, such as a Victorian home. A property's age, however, can create issues for homeowners. Croxley Green homes employing traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Construction materials, such as stone quarried in the Croxley Green area, , which could result in longer-term maintenance obligations.

Built in the 15th century, Finches Avenue, The Stables in Croxley Green is a fine example of a Medieval-period house, later barn.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there may be powdery white asbestos duct connectors situated in the home. What are the issues with asbestos, are there any risks and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous substance of several naturally occurring materials. Some types are found in the building materials including acoustic ceilings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic fire retarding properties, it may be found in patching compounds. .

All forms are pernicious and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to break it and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Croxley Green Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will report on the risk of asbestos and should offer advice.

House Prices

Is £241, 733 within the right sort of area amount to be buying a property in WD3 in Croxley Green for and what things does the surveyor evaluate when conducting a RICS survey ?

There are many factors that can impact on the price of property e.g. the location of nearby transport links or the amount of light it receives. One method is to consider prices recorded in the same area for similar properties. The average flat price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £239, 433 - £2, 300 less than £241, 733 (£433, 252 was the blended house/flat average). 12, Southam Mews, Croxley Green, Rickmansworth, Three Rivers, Hertfordshire, WD3 3FG sold for £205, 000 .

The most accurate way to get a formal property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as standard. Your local surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).
