Homebuyers Survey for London Properties
Is your new property of interest the perfect family home or a building that’s hiding costly problems? Instead of leaving the future of your finances and family’s comfort to chance, let our chartered surveyors provide a RICS HomeBuyer Report, which highlights urgent problems in the property that could end up being your family home for years.
Qualified chartered surveyors frequently find construction issues, utility faults and potential legal disputes when surveying London homes, yet only one in five buyers obtain a RICS HomeBuyer Report before purchasing a property.
At Harding Chartered Surveyors, we can uncover the truth about your potential home’s condition to help you decide whether or not your property of interest is a safe investment. Obtain a free quote or call us to discuss your requirements with a chartered surveyor directly.
How much is a HomeBuyers Survey for London areas cost?
A Homebuyers Survey for London properties varies depending on the size of the property, but the present starting price is £400. The Report details structural issues, such as subsidence and damp, in addition to other severe problems inside and outside of the property. You can also request an additional valuation to see if the home’s asking price reflects its value. Nowadays, most homebuyers rely on a lender’s mortgage valuation to determine whether or not a property is suitable for their family and if its value is accurate. However, mortgage valuations are far from thorough, and they’re primarily purposed to satisfy the lender rather than the buyer.
RICS HomeBuyer Reports use a traffic light rating system to highlight the most serious property defects and safety issues.
