Home Buyers Survey in Enfield

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Enfield and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Enfield property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Enfield property's condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when purchasing a home proximate to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: non-hazardous waste material disposal. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks might include heavy metals. Health issues like congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Enfield will examine structural problems resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as Enfield Local Authority and advise you .

Conservation area

Will there be any problems I should look into when planning to buy a converted flat in Enfield in a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by local authorities. Surveyors in Enfield are required by RICS to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local area issues and any effect may have on the property and its value. The value of homes is usually greater which is down to the areas being largely unspoilt However a large number have been neglected and are in disrepair e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors will report whether the property is possibly within a conservation area and Section I of the Enfield Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out as part of the legal process. Unsympathetic adjustments to the building may be reported, however these should be investigated by the solicitor.

Building Surveys on apartments

We are buying a derelict Edwardian apartment property in Enfield, should I opt for a full structural survey?

Structural surveys are now known Building Surveys. We recommend that you commission a Building Survey for the apartment you are planning to buy. A HomeBuyer Report is appropriate if investigating a mid century or later Enfield property of conventional construction materials and methods. You should be aware of certain restrictions exist with any survey as RICS chartered surveyor cannot force or open up the fabric of the building of investigate the internal state of any flues.

House Prices

We are would like to buying a house in EN2 which is being marketed for £376, 721. What things does a surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Enfield ?

There are many factors which could affect property values e.g. the square footage or whether there is any subsidence. You can try to put side by side prices achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties.

This means house prices paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £349, 121, which is £27, 600 less than the price you are intending to pay (£299, 363 was the blended house/flat average). 7, Cooks Hole Road, Enfield, Enfield, Greater London, EN2 0UD a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £235, 000 .

The only way for you to get a formal home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part. A chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact should wet weather have on our new house?

Both in Enfield, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately rainfall and the effect it can have on Enfield property are not considered by house purchasers. If you have only seen the house on a sunny day, issues may have been hidden. Signs that rainwater goods are under performing include leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage. If you are concerned, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy. Where this is not unblocked on a regular basis, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.
