HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Knebworth and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Knebworth property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give a thorough analysis of the Knebworth property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact does rainfall have on a Knebworth house? Where there is necessary work, what should we do?

As a frequent surveyor of houses in the area, I find it strange that this issue is usually overlooked by property buyers. One indication that drainage systems are blocked is a waterlogged garden.

Whether buying in Knebworth or elsewhere, difficult drainage systems do not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, if caught early. However, if the drains are disregarded, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

House Prices

There is a detached property in SG2 in Knebworth on with a local agent for £381, 714. What different issues will your local surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Knebworth ?

There is a vast array of things that can impact on the price of property like any number of structural defects or whether the property is on an adopted road. It can help to consider prices achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties.

The means house prices completed in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £369, 314, which is £12, 400 less than the asking price (£327, 526 was the blended house/flat average). Manor House, Park Lane, Old Knebworth, Knebworth, North Hertfordshire, Hertfordshire, SG3 6QD a detached property sold for £3, 960, 000 .

An impartial way for you to get a professional property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as a core component.

Building Surveys on houses

Should I order a full structural survey before acquiring an extended sixties house in Knebworth?

Structural surveys are now called the Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a post 1950s Knebworth house assembled from normal building materials. The Building Survey is certainly the most advisable survey to choose for the house described. After a thorough survey of any accessible parts of the house, a report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) is dispatched to the prospective buyer summarising in depth and critical advice on the standard of construction and repair of the building. There are one or two limitations with any survey insofar as RICS chartered surveyor will not be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the fabric of the Knebworth house, an example being lifting up fitted carpets.
