HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Palmers Green property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Palmers Green property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Palmers Green Surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees)

A Homebuyer Report on a Palmers Green property will contain a property valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To fully consider the valuation your independent surveyor will take into account area knowledge and other factors about the property e.g. number of bedrooms Surveyors also evaluate materials used and make certain other assumptions such as there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected.

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. The valuation also assumes that there aren't any major legal issues for example there being no outstanding claims. These will be investigated by your solicitor.

Further area assumptions, like problematic roads and access, are made in addition to local environmental concerns like the property being underneath a flight path, also being considered.

Defective door frame

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Palmers Green what might a green light rating mean for 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

All doors leading outside are checked, but will not force open any without keys. Broadly speaking, draughts and damp penetration around the frames will be included. Lintels which are sagging or missing above doors is one example. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate how concerning each aspect of the report is. A 'green' condition rating of 1 confirms that no repairs are required. Nevertheless, the surveyor may still recommend that regular upkeep is carried out. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the house. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls I would need to be wary of if planning to buy an extended house in Palmers Green in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by local councils.

A Building Surveyors must have knowledge of relevant local issues and any connection they have on the home and its value. The price of property tends to be more than prices outside the area owing to them being largely unspoilt However many areas have been neglected and are in a state of neglect for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors are expected inform you whether the building looks like it may be so designated and Section I of a Palmers Green Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are conducted by your legal representation. Unauthorised changes to the building may be advised but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer.
