HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Norbiton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Norbiton property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Norbiton property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

We are going to be investing in a buy to let detached house in Norbiton (KT1) which is being marketed for £978, 880. What will a Norbiton RICS chartered surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in Norbiton on a survey ?

There are many factors that can add to or subtract from property values e.g. the amount of ground rent or the local crime statistics. It can help to look at house values achieved in the area for similar houses.

The average house price recorded in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £953, 580, which is £25, 300 less than the selling price. The house/flat average was £701, 975. 54, Cobham Road, Kingston Upon Thames, Kingston Upon Thames, Greater London, KT1 3AF a detached property sold for £560, 000 .

In order for home buyers to get a formal house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as part of the service. Your qualified surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

A professional qualified RICS surveyor should go to the property in addition to considering the large variety of area factors affecting house prices.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost. To properly appraise an accurate estimate of the value of the building your independent surveyor will combine experience of property in Norbiton and other considerations about the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also reflect on construction methods and will make certain other assumptions e.g. the property is connected to mains services such as water.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor also assumes that there is an absence of any significant legal problems for example the tenure being as indicated (e.g commonhold). Advice should be sought from your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Further Norbiton assumptions, such as stairway access to a maisonette or connection to sewers, are made in addition to local environmental issues like flood plains, also being considered.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have read that clay soil can create issues for buildings in Norbiton. Can we expect the Home Buyers Survey to mention this?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects, with subsidence being a common example. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a house's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. A Norbiton surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
