HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Pimlico and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Pimlico property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Pimlico property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a maisonette near to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. inert refuse disposal. Nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include complex organic chemicals. Health concerns like downs syndrome have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Pimlico will flag up structural issues linked to the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark databases as well as Westminster Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

External walls

In a Pimlico HomeBuyer Report what are common defects Condition rating 2 impacting 'E4 - Main walls' ?

A fairly common example may be an improperly end bearing lintel. Foundations and possible defects within the walls will not be investigated. Damp proofing, including the DPC, is also included here. Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however.

House Prices

I want to buy a Terraced property in SW1V for £1, 610, 663. What different issues will your surveyor consider in the process of a valuation ?

There are a huge number of issues that might affect property values ranging from living on flood plain to the property's proximity to a conservation area. It may help to set against values achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties.

This means house prices recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £1, 619, 463, which is £8, 800 more than the amount you are paying and the flat/house average was £799, 421. 20, Flat 1-2, Churton Street, London, City Of Westminster, Greater London, SW1V 2LL a Terraced home sold for £210, 000 .

In order for home buyers to get an accurate and professional house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as a core component. Your surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

A professional RICS chartered surveyor will always attend the house in addition to considering the countless issues that have a bearing on property prices.
