HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Kingsland and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Kingsland property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Kingsland property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls we would be advised to on guard for when planning to buy a property in Kingsland in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are thousands of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by local councils. Kingsland surveyors must have local knowledge of relevant local factors and the effect they have on the building. The price of property will probably be higher because of them retaining their original character. However a growing number have been neglected and are in a state of neglect for example - the removal front garden walls

Surveyors will inform you if the home could be in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Kingsland Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are conducted during the legal process. Unconsented changes to the building may also be noted but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Kingsland building will include a valuation and a "reinstatement cost" as standard. To ascertain the market value your chartered surveyor should use knowledge of Kingsland and other things relating to the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also reflect on certain fixtures and fittings and use other assumptions such as there being no major problems. Surveyors ignore certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets. It will also be assumed that there is an absence of any major legal issues e.g. building regulations having been complied. Advice should be sought from your solicitor.

Further Kingsland assumptions like issues with access, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like the area being prone to flooding, also being considered.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Traditionally built property

What should we look out for when buying a building constructed in 1790 in Kingsland? Will regular maintenance costs be higher?

A building's age can worry purchasers. Kingsland houses employing traditional methods can be costly to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed buildings. This may make the final cost hard to predict. If you are uncertain, speak to your surveyor for further advice.
