HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Norwood property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give you comprehensive details of the Norwood property's general condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Norwood Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of if buying a flat close to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including hazardous rubbish disposal. Nobody would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns might include hazardous chemicals. Potential health concerns such as congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Norwood surveyors will find structural problems linked to the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as Croydon Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

House Prices

I intend to acquire a property in Norwood (HG3) for an asking price of £282, 767. What considerations will a Norwood qualified surveyor evaluate on a Home Survey ?

Any number of issues which could affect house prices from anti social neighbours to the number and size of bedrooms at the home. It is useful to analyse flat prices achieved in the area for comparable properties. The mean flat price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £261, 667, which is £21, 100 less than the asking price. The average for houses and flats was £255, 227. 7, Garden Mews, Pateley Bridge, Harrogate, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG3 5JU a leasehold apartment recently sold for £125, 000 .

The best way for you to get a formal property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report in Norwood which includes a formal valuation as standard. Your RICS chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme.

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor check out the serviceability of the gas flues?

Yes. Your chartered surveyor will locate and visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at the mains gas installation as part of the survey, in addition to gas affiliated gas installations in the house like balanced flues. Any external fittings or housings will not be undone. Of course, gas is potentially fatal and if there are any worries about gas, call a gas engineer.
