Home Buyers Survey in Thamesmead

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Thamesmead and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Thamesmead property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Thamesmead property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a garage) and how does the surveyor work it out?

A Homebuyer Report on a Thamesmead property will include an independent valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To work out the property's value the valuer will take into account experience of property in Thamesmead and other factors about the property e.g. accommodation The RICS surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will use other assumptions e.g. the ground is not land filled. Surveyors don't value certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there are no costly legal problems like the tenure being as indicated (e.g freehold). Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Further Thamesmead conjectures, such as stairway access to a maisonette or issues with access, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like busy roads, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

House Prices

There is a flat in SE2 on with a local agent for £129, 550. What will the surveyor take into account when calculating house prices in Thamesmead ?

There are many factors which could positively or negatively affect property values for instance whether any associated planning permissions come with the property or the number of bathrooms. It often helps to look at prices achieved in the nearby area for similar properties. The average flat price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £103, 250, which is £26, 300 less than the price you are intending to pay. The average factoring in houses and flats was £141, 412. 93, Redbourne Drive, London, Bexley, Greater London, SE28 8SQ was purchased for £113, 000 .

The best way for you to get a formal house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service.

The local surveyor will attend the site as well as allowing for the long list of factors that have a bearing on the value of property.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic has created issues for us in the old property, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What aspects of the attic will be checked?

Thamesmead property in otherwise fine condition can still be subject to roofing woes, like mould. From tie beams to dormers, every element of the roof will be considered. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

Replacement of tiles and other roof repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.
