HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Dorking and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Dorking property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Dorking property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

I would like to acquire a detached property in Dorking (RH5). The asking price is £512, 974. What things will a Dorking qualified surveyor evaluate during a Home Survey ?

Any number of issues that can impact on the price of property from the legality of extensions to the home having hard to change bad taste parts. One method is to look at house values recorded in Dorking for comparable properties.

The average house price paid in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £518, 774, which is £5, 800 more than the asking price (£445, 987 was the blended house/flat average). Blythe Barn, Walliswood, Dorking, Mole Valley, Surrey, RH5 5PL a detached property sold for £116, 500 .

The only way for you to get a formal house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a professional valuation as a core component.

The RICS surveyor will visit the property in addition to considering the countless area items that can impact on the value of property.

Conservation area

Will there be any factors we would need to look into when intending to buy an extended house in Dorking inside a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by local councils. Dorking surveyors are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local factors and any effect they have with the property. The value of homes tends to be higher than non conservation area equivalents as a result of conservation areas resisting change. However many conservation areas have fallen into disrepair for example - the excessive amount of traffic management signs

RICS surveyors can be expected to inform you whether the location looks to be is so classified and Section I of the Dorking Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are conducted by your solicitor. Unconsented developments to the property will also be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for the solicitor. David Cowan are based in 114 South Street, Mole Valley, Surrey, RH4 2EW will be prepared to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01306 886622
