Home Buyers Survey in Sunbury

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Sunbury and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Sunbury property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does give a thorough analysis of the Sunbury property's condition as well as advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Window frame

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Sunbury property, what will 'E5 - Windows' cover?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The structured format for the HomeBuyer Report is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any house purchasers. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property.

Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. A sash window with badly rusted metal components is an example of this.

House Prices

There is a property in TW16 in Sunbury priced at £463, 818. What factors will surveyor consider when valuing house prices in Sunbury ?

A myriad of factors exist that can impact on property values like the existence of double glazing or the quality of the bathroom and fittings. It is useful to put side by side prices recorded in Sunbury for similar properties.

The means house prices registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £461, 518, which is £2, 300 less than the price you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £434, 243. Sautosha, Beasleys Ait, Sunbury-On-Thames, Elmbridge, Surrey, TW16 6AS a detached home sold for £297, 500 .

An impartial way to get an accurate property valued is to commission a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a formal valuation as standard. A qualified surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

A RICS chartered surveyor will always visit the house in addition to considering the large variety of influences that can affect property values.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the period property I intend to purchase it appeared that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses, does a Homebuyer Report in Sunbury advise on any faults with the electrics?

When performing a Sunbury Home Survey a qualified surveyor will mention the overall electrical system if it is apparent that the electrics are in a poor state of repair. A Home surveyor is expected to report back on possible problems relating to things like checking the state of repair of fitted appliances e.g. water heaters or checking the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. A check for the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician will be part of the survey in Sunbury.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) recommend a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be completed every 10 years (5 if letting).
