HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Hyde Park and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Hyde Park property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension on the Hyde Park property, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give a thorough analysis of the Hyde Park property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

Is £3, 936, 689 in the right ball park price to pay for a property in SW7 for and what will a qualified surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Hyde Park ?

A myriad of factors exist which could have a bearing on house prices like proximity to road noise or the status of the central heating. It can help to benchmark selling prices achieved in Hyde Park at the same time for comparable properties.

This means house prices paid in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £3, 916, 289, which is £20, 400 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The average factoring in houses and flats was £3, 522, 274. 8, Montpelier Terrace, London, City Of Westminster, Greater London, SW7 1JP a Terraced house sold for £1, 575, 000 .

The only way for you to get an accurate and professional house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a professional valuation as a core component. A RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

Damaged Render

What will the Hyde Park Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) regency house in Hyde Park.

Stucco is just a kind of smooth solid render. Normally it is applied to underlying brick to form a smooth stone like appearance. Stucco is very grand in appearance and is often found on Victorian houses. Stucco is often problematic and Hyde Park Building Surveys frequently discover issues e.g. moisture trapped beneath paint. Other issues could be when dampness enters under sills that causes large areas of detachment. Re-applying Stucco problems may be surprisingly expensive as craftsmen are getting harder to find.

Conservation area

Are there any things we would need to be aware of if buying a home in Hyde Park near a conservation area, particularly in relation to house prices?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas in the UK which are governed by the local authority. Your surveyor must possess local knowledge of relevant local issues and the effect may have with the property. House prices tends to be significantly higher as a result of them being preserved.

Surveyors can be expected to report if the home is or might be within a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are raised by your legal adviser. Out of keeping changes to the building will also be noted, however these should be concern for the lawyer.
