HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in West London and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the West London property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the West London property's state of repair as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a property in the region a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste e.g. domestic waste disposal. Of course nobody wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks include methane gas generation. Potential health problems such as abdominal wall problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will notice any structural problems linked to the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as Hammersmith and Fulham Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in West London, and will the residential surveyor inquire into any flooding damage?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: The Guardian). Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the West London house in question is in danger.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a home, such as via door frames. The survey report will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

House Prices

We are would like to purchasing a detached property in West London, W5 for around the £853, 283 mark. What will a West London chartered surveyor consider when estimating house prices in West London on a RICS valuation ?

There are a great number of factors that might affect house prices from the tenure i.e. freehold or leasehold to whether there is a flying freehold. As an indicator, one can try to analyse house values registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £841, 583, which is £11, 700 less than the price being asked. The average factoring in houses and flats was £497, 596. 36, Elm Grove Road, London, Ealing, Greater London, W5 3JJ a detached property was purchased for £340, 000 .

In order for home buyers to get a professional property valuation, one way is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report by default. Your qualified RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.
