HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Havering and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Havering property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Havering property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we need to verify when intending to buy a flat in Havering in a conservation area, particularly in relation to house prices?

There are many thousands of conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by the local authority. Your surveyor need to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local factors and the connection may have on the property. The value of homes will likely be greater owing to them being largely unspoilt

Surveyors are expected tell you if the home is possibly is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are raised during the legal process. Unauthorised changes to the property should be advised but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Havering surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as site clearance) and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report contains a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the survey. In order to determine an accurate value estimate your chartered surveyor will pair local property market knowledge and other factors about the property for instance: size Surveyors also reflect on construction methods and will draw upon other assumptions like no damaging building techniques have been used.

A Building survey won't 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.

Additional local Havering area conjectures, like service connections, are made in addition to any Havering environmental issues like pig farms, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Building Surveys on flats 1

We are investing in a un-loved Victorian flat property - is it necessary to upgrade to a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed as the Building Survey. It is the best property survey when purchasing an altered home like a neglected flat in Havering. This non prescribed format of report can give comprehensive and often crucial information on the flats standard of construction and repair in conjunction with any needs for future maintenance, following a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building. Additionally flats often add complexity. - so the surveyor can only check the flat itself, though the surveyor may also outline information about other sections of the property such as evidence of movement to the building.
