HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Vauxhall and which is cheaper?

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

If the Vauxhall property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give a thorough analysis of the Vauxhall property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should we upgrade to a full structural survey when looking into a modified period cottage in Vauxhall instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Regularly still referred to as the Structural Survey by some, it is no longer offered and this most technical survey has been superseded by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report is appropriate if buying a 60 year old or less unmodified house made out of normal building materials. The Building Survey is definitely the correct survey to opt for the house described. Usually within 2 to 3 days after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the house, a formal written report will be sent to the prospective purchaser giving any critical insight on the materials used for the construction of the house. There will be one or two provisos with any residential survey to consider as a surveyor wont

be able to (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the Vauxhall building e.g. removing the contents of cupboards. This page for more info property surveys.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when buying a property proximate to a landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: non-hazardous waste material. Of course nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks include complex organic chemicals. Health concerns such as abdominal wall problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Vauxhall surveyors will flag up any structural defects connected with the site. Your solicitor will conduct conveyancing searches of the Landmark database as well as Lambeth Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

House Prices

Is £322, 518 the right sort of amount to pay for a flat close to SE11 for and What things will a surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Vauxhall ?

There are a huge number of issues which could positively or negatively affect property values for instance the property's kerb appeal or the internal layout. You can try to compare with flat prices achieved in the area for similar flats. The average flat price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £303, 318, which is £19, 200 less than the selling price and the flat/house average was £322, 964. Spring Gardens Court, 79, Flat 12, Vauxhall Walk, London, Lambeth, Greater London, SE11 5HX a leasehold maisonette sold for £420, 000 .

An impartial way for home buyers to get an accurate home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default. A local surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.
