Home Buyers Survey in City Of London

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in City Of London and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the City Of London property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the City Of London property's condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a maisonette proximate to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. hazardous waste disposal. Nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include methane gas generation. Potential health concerns such as downs syndrome have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveys in City Of London will find any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark database and City of London Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the home I intend to move into I saw that there is old wiring; does the surveyor go into detail on the general state of the electrical system?

When carrying out a City Of London Home Buyers Survey the RICS surveyor will usually make a note on the condition of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in a less than satisfactory condition. This should include an overview (i.e. without undoing fittings) inspection view of the accessible parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other issues like the location of the meter and fuse board . Reporting on any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician should usually be part of the survey in City Of London. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the Homebuyer report in City Of London .

The IEE advise that a Periodic Inspection Report should be carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which City Of London Surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a boundary wall)

A Homebuyer Report on a City Of London property will contain an impartial valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To be able to determine the valuation your RICS valuer will combine in depth understanding of the City Of London market and other things relating to the property e.g. state of repair.

The surveyor will also consider materials used and use key assumptions like it is connected to mains services.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area assumptions, for example the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like flightpaths, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
