HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Leyton and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Leyton property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Leyton property's condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I would like to buy a house in E10, being marketed for £296, 976. What things does a surveyor consider when carrying out a RICS valuation ?

There are a huge number of issues which could affect house prices from the legality of extensions to the number and size of bedrooms at the home. It may help to put side by side house prices registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties.

The average house price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £270, 476, which is £26, 500 less than the amount you are paying. The house/flat average was £236, 701. 8, Matlock Road, London, Waltham Forest, Greater London, E10 6BW a semi detached property sold for £317, 000 .

The most accurate way for home buyers to get an independent house valued is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as a core component.

Building Surveys on houses

Do we need to commission the full structural survey when looking into a neglected period property in Leyton as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Commonly referred to as a Full Structural Survey by some, it is no longer available and has been reclassified by RICS(Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the right term is now the Building Survey. A Building Survey is now the best choice of home survey when buying an altered property e.g. a neglected house in Leyton. It spells out in depth and often critical details in relation to the property's construction and uses as well as any technical details, following a thorough visual inspection of the accessible areas. .

Other external areas of the property

On a Leyton HomeBuyer Report, what does a Condition rating 2 mean for factors covered in Section E?

Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat. The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Your surveyor can provide more details if required. Rot and insect damage to a porch or conservatory's structure is one defect applicable to this section.
