HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Longford and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Longford property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, you should you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give a thorough analysis of the Longford property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I am going to acquire a property in GL19 for £73, 183. What things does a Longford surveyor evaluate when conducting a property valuation report ?

There is a vast array of things which could affect house prices ranging from living on flood plain to the number of bedrooms in the property. It may help to compare with the prices of flat recorded in the same area for similar properties. The average flat price recorded between July and October in 2012 was £99, 583, which is £26, 400 more than the amount you are intending to pay. The combined house/flat average was £207, 280. 34, Flat 5, Willowleaze, Gloucester, Gloucester, Gloucestershire, GL2 0QB recently sold for £210, 000 .

In order to get an independent home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report by default. Your qualified surveyor will be part

of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about insects. Is a Full Structural Survey advisable?

Any questions about pests affecting a Longford building may not be asked by the lawyer. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. An affected building may not always be easy to identify. As an example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include destruction of tainted materials. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Conservation area

Are there any issues I would need to look out for when purchasing a converted flat in Longford inside a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local authority. Your surveyor need to have relevant knowledge of local considerations and the connection they have with the home and its value. Values will be more than prices outside the area because of the areas retaining original features. However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in a state e.g. ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors are trained to note whether the property looks like it may be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Longford Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are raised as part of the legal process. Unconsented developments to the building will also be reported, however these should be concern for the solicitor. Francis Mostyn & Co are a local firm situated at 242 High Street, Hillingdon, London, SL3 8LL might be able to give you some pointers. Tel: 01753 545322
