HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Victoria property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension on the Victoria property, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Victoria property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to obtain a full structural survey if purchasing a extended fifties house near Victoria instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

They are often referred to as a Full Structural Survey by many, this survey is no longer available as it has been renamed by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. When looking into purchasing an unusual Victoria property like a neglected house, it is now the best RICS survey. It details comprehensive and important advice about the buildings construction and uses and any maintenance needs, shortly after a thorough inspection of any accessible parts of the house. Permanent outside buildings will typically be checked out.

House Prices

I am going to acquire a Terraced house in SW1V for £4, 186, 267. What things will a Victoria local surveyor allow for in the process of a survey ?

There are a huge number of issues which could have a bearing on property values ranging from existence of building regulations for modifications to whether it has any outdoor space. It can help to consider values registered at the Land Registry for similar properties.

This means house prices recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £4, 166, 667, which is £19, 600 less than the selling price and the flat/house average was £994, 836. 33, Hugh Street, London, City Of Westminster, Greater London, SW1V 1QJ a Terraced house sold for £1, 600, 000 .

In order for home buyers to get a professional home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as standard. A RICS chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

A professional local surveyor will always attend the site as well as factoring in the myriad of location factors that might affect property values.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we check gutters? Will the Victoria chartered surveyor report on this? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the impact heavy rain can have on property is rarely paid due attention. For instance, spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts will likely suggest that the downspouts are damaged. Luckily, issues with rainwater goods are usually easy to resolve. If poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
