HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Waltham Cross and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Waltham Cross property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Waltham Cross property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What directions can a Waltham Cross surveyor offer for a 70s residence constructed with Sussex bond brick?

Brick-built Waltham Cross homes do benefit from many advantages. Unfortunately, they also be affected by numerous defects, ranging from sulphate attack to lack of a damp proof course. The property surveyor would usually include these, with advice on the consequences were they to go untreated.

A defect often found is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. Dee Colin at 5 Sanderson St, Coxhoe, Durham, DH6 4DG should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 0191-377 9562.

One example is running, or stretcher, bond. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should I check rainwater goods? Could damaged rainwater goods lower the property value?

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that heavy rain and the effect it can have on your home are not given the attention it deserves. For instance, mildew in the attic strongly suggest that the drainage are a cause for concern, and may lead to water damage. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. If poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

House Prices

There is a property close to EN3 on with a local agent for £162, 500. What factors will Waltham Cross RICS chartered surveyor evaluate when calculating house prices in Waltham Cross ?

A myriad of factors exist that can affect the price of property like plumbing problems or the number and size of bedrooms at the home. It can help to analyse the prices of flat recorded in Waltham Cross for comparable properties. The mean flat price completed between July and October in 2012 was £143, 600, which is £18, 900 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The average for houses and flats was £200, 389. 5 Plumridge Court, 6, Dairy Close, Enfield, Enfield, Greater London, EN3 6PS a new build leasehold flat recently sold for £165, 000 .

The only way for you to get a formal home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as an integral component.
