Home Buyers Survey in Knightsbridge

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Knightsbridge property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations on the Knightsbridge property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Knightsbridge property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Knightsbridge home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a boundary wall)

The Homebuyer Report includes an impartial valuation and a rebuilding cost as an integral part of the report. To properly appraise the market value your independent surveyor will relate to experience of property in Knightsbridge and other factors about the property for instance: size The valuer will also consider style of architecture and draw upon key assumptions e.g. there are no damaging materials.

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. The valuation also assumes that there is an absence of any expensive legal problems for example the tenure being as indicated (e.g share of freehold). These will be investigated by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Further Knightsbridge assumptions like connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like intrusive noises or smells, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Knightsbridge. Is there any Sussex bond repair advice we should be aware of??

Brick-walled converted property in Knightsbridge can suffer from various issues and defects. An especially severe issue is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. For more information, contact a local builder, Quayline Ltd of 12 Southfield Ave, Paignton, TQ31LJ on 01803 558656.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one, to the rare, such Scottish bond features five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.
