HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in New Eltham and which one is cheaper?

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

If the New Eltham property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the New Eltham property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as professional fees e.g legal fees) and what does it include?

New Eltham Homebuyer Reports a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To ascertain an accurate value estimate the surveyor will relate to experience of property in New Eltham and other things about the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also evaluate construction methods and use key assumptions e.g. the property is connected to mains services such as water. Surveyors don't value things like sales incentives.

Additional local area conjectures, for example connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like flood plains, also being considered.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns I should check out if intending to buy a building in New Eltham in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by local authorities. New Eltham surveyors need to have local knowledge of local factors and the relation may have on the building and its value. The value of homes is, more often than not, higher than non conservation area equivalents because of them being in their original state. However many have fallen into a state e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

RICS surveyors can be expected to note whether the location is/might be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the New Eltham Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are carried out by your solicitor. Unapproved extensions to the building will also be noted but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there might be painted over asbestos ceilings being found in house. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. Some types may be in building materials for example acoustic ceilings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good fire retarding properties, it may be found in patching compounds. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken never to break asbestos and professional advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Your New Eltham surveyor should note suspected asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.
