HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Hoxton and which is cheaper?

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

If the Hoxton property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations on the property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Hoxton property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the house I am intending to acquire it appeared that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox - will a surveyor report on electrical system condition?

During a Hoxton Home Buyers Survey your RICS surveyor should usually comment on the overall electrical system if it is obvious that they are in a poor state. A Surveyor should also report back on possible problems relating to things like verifying the nature of any electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the condition of a sample of switch gear. Inspecting any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey in Hoxton.

The IEE advise a Periodic Inspection should be carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).

Stone block wall damage

Can homes partially constructed with stone cause issues for the owner? What related issues should we be aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Buyers of a stone-walled listed building should consider that 'sympathetic' maintenance may be required. These restrictions are often rigorously enforced. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include delaminated or cracked paintwork. Stone quarried in the area is common to local property in Hoxton, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

House Prices

What is the right amount to buy a property in for and what different issues will your Hoxton chartered surveyor evaluate when calculating house prices in Hoxton ?

There is a near endless list of things which could affect property values for instance proximity to road noise or issues with drainage. .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get an independent home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a formal valuation as standard. Your qualified RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.
