HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Elmers End and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Elmers End property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Elmers End property's condition as well as including information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the RICS surveyor examine the condition or the safety of the gas appliances?

Your surveyor will visually survey any accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the routing of any gas pipes at the home, as well as gas related fixtures, for instance fireplaces. Any external fittings won't actually be taken off. The system will not be tested at all. Needless to say, gas can be unsafe, should there be any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

The regulations stipulate landlords have to conduct appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines .

House Prices

I am going to buy a flat in BR3. It is on the market for £198, 634. What will a surveyor take into account when carrying out a professional valuation ?

There is a vast array of things that might affect house prices from existence of building regulations for modifications to whether it has any outdoor space. One method is to benchmark prices values registered at the Land Registry for similar properties. The mean flat price registered in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £189, 434, which is £9, 200 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The house/flat average was £315, 699. Cotman Court, 9, Flat 3, Sheridan Way, Beckenham, Bromley, Greater London, BR3 4TL a leasehold flat sold for £200, 000 .

In order to get an independent home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as standard.

Traditionally built property

What should we pay attention to when purchasing a house built in around 1730 in Elmers End? Will the age of the house be a problem?

For traditionally-built Elmers End property, age, however, can worry purchasers, and Buildings employing traditional methods can be difficult to upkeep.
