HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Hornchurch and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Hornchurch property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give comprehensive details of the Hornchurch property's condition as well as including information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations I should check on when intending to buy a flat in Hornchurch in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are many thousands of conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by local councils. Surveyors in Hornchurch need to possess relevant knowledge of local factors and the effect they have on the home and its value. Property Prices will likely be greater as a result of them being preserved. However many areas are falling into shoddy condition for example - increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Property surveyors can be expected to report if the property looks to be is so classified and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will recommend additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted during the legal

process. Out of keeping modifications that do not have Local Authority approval may be reported in the Hornchurch survey, however these should be investigated by your legal adviser.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when purchasing a property near to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including non-hazardous waste disposal. Of course nobody wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries might include methane gas generation .

Homebuyer reports in Hornchurch will note any structural problems linked to the site. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark data sets and Havering Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

House Prices

My partner and I are would like to buying a detached property in RM12. The asking price is £278, 917. What things does the qualified surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in Hornchurch ?

There are many factors which could have a bearing on the price of property for example local employment opportunities or the amount of light it receives. It is useful to consider values recorded in the same area for similar properties.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £295, 417, which is £16, 500 more than the amount you are paying. The combined house/flat average was £264, 613. 1, Fontwell Park Gardens, Hornchurch, Havering, Greater London, RM12 6DA a detached property sold for £340, 000 .
