HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Norwood Green and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Norwood Green property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Norwood Green property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our surveyor check for indications of flooding?

The lives of many property owners in Norwood Green and across the UK have suffered as a result of floods, and owning a property in Norwood Green in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

The Environment Agency confirm that no warnings have been for Norwood Green.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Norwood Green surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as professional fees) and how is it calculated?

Homebuyer Reports include an independent valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. When calculating the property's value your surveyor should use in depth understanding of the Norwood Green market and other considerations about the property for instance: accommodation Surveyors also examine construction methods and make certain key assumptions such as it is connected to mains services. Surveyors will ignore things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Further area assumptions, like issues with access, are made as well as any significant local environmental concerns like flightpaths, which are also considered as part of the valuation. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Conservation area

Are there any problems I would be advised to look out for if purchasing an extended house in Norwood Green inside a conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Norwood Green need to have knowledge of relevant local issues and the effect they have on the home and its value. Values tends to be inflated because of them retaining their original character. However many conservation areas are falling into a poor state for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors are expected advise you if the planned purchase is or might be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Norwood Green Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are carried out by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unauthorised adjustments to the property may also be advised but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative.
