HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Rayners Lane and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Rayners Lane property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, 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 an extension on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does give you comprehensive details of the Rayners Lane property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any problems I would need to check on when planning to buy a property in Rayners Lane inside a conservation area ?

There are thousands of conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local authority. Rayners Lane surveyors are required by RICS to have local knowledge of relevant local considerations and the connection may have on the building and its value. House prices will be greater as a result of them being preserved. However many are falling into a state for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Property surveyors will advise whether the location could be so designated and Section I of the Rayners Lane Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are raised by your legal adviser. Unsympathetic adjustments to the property should be reported in the Rayners Lane survey, however these should

be investigated by your lawyer. Ravi Solicitors are a local firm situated at 457b Alexandra Avenue, Harrow, London, HA2 9RY and may be able to help. Tel: 0208 426 1178

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a surveyor valuation and will also include a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the report. To properly appraise the property's value your RICS valuer will refer to in depth understanding of the Rayners Lane market and other factors relating to the property for instance: general condition.

Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and draw upon key assumptions such as there are no damaging materials. Surveyors don't value things like sales incentives.

Additional local Rayners Lane area conjectures, such as stairway access to a maisonette or the property being insurable, are made in addition to any environmental problems like intrusive noises or smells, 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 small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing an older barn conversion in Rayners Lane. What consequences will the residence's rafter roof have on repairs?

Some buyers have considered buying a house with personality, like a coach house or converted stable. A building's age, however, can concern buyers. Buildings built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property. Mention this to your surveyor for further advice.
