Home Buyers Survey in Esher

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Esher and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Esher property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications on the property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give comprehensive details of the Esher property's general condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a potentially interesting investment flat in KT10 priced at £365, 706. What considerations will a Esher chartered surveyor take into account when calculating house prices in Esher ?

There are many factors that might affect property values e.g. the likelihood of getting planning permission to extend or whether it is near the coast or has a coastal view. You can try to compare with flat values recorded in Esher for comparable properties. The mean flat price recorded in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £377, 806, which is £12, 100 more than the price being asked. The combined house/flat average was £920, 162. 33, Flat 1 & 3-7, New Road, Esher, Elmbridge, Surrey, KT10 9PG sold for £170, 000 .

The most reliable way for you to get a professional property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as part of the service. Your RICS surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

A qualified surveyor should actually visit the site as well as considering the wealth of area issues affecting the value of property.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is high levels of rainfall an issue in Esher? Where there are issues, what should we do?

Regular rainfall is common in Esher and across the country, but the impact rain can have on a structure is often overlooked. If you have only been to the residence in the Summer, issues may have been hidden. Signs that drainage systems are damaged include spalling masonry. This can lead to fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

The good news is that issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously.
