Home Buyers Survey in Edgwarebury

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Edgwarebury and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Edgwarebury property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications on the Edgwarebury property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Edgwarebury property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do we need to consider guttering? Will the Edgwarebury building survey report on this? Can damaged guttering decrease our property's value?

Both in Edgwarebury, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the effect which high levels of rainfall has on a structure is not considered. One indication that drainage systems are worth a closer look is "gushing" gutters, and may lead to rising damp. Fortunately, drainage problems are usually easy to remedy. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when purchasing a flat in the region a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. commercial waste. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health issues such as downs syndrome have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveys in Edgwarebury will consider structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the British Geological database as well as Harrow Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Edgwarebury property will contain a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a rebuilding cost as part of the report. To properly appraise the property's value your chartered surveyor will call upon in depth understanding of the Edgwarebury market as well as other factors about the property e.g. square metres.

Surveyors also examine style of architecture and will draw upon other assumptions like the property is connected to mains services such as gas.

A Building Survey does not 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. RICS valuations assume that there is an absence of any expensive legal issues for example the tenure being as indicated (e.g commonhold). Such concerns will be unravelled by your solicitor.

Additional local Edgwarebury area assumptions, like service connections, are made as well as any significant local environmental concerns like railways, which will also be factored in.
