  1. Hello all, I'm new to property investment and have recently been looking at property auctions. One of the stumbling blocks I have come across is that I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking at when it comes to any defects and potential problems which may cost me in the long run. I don't want to invest blind so have been looking at getting homebuyer reports done on each of the properties I'm interested in. However, these are going to cost me in the region of £400 per property, so in the end will cost me in the region of £2000 without any guarantee I will win the property come auction
  2. Hi All, What guidance do hubbers have on pre purchase surveys for a conversion mill leasehold flat? I've not purchased leasehold before. The 1 bed flat is a ground floor unit converted around 15 years ago in a Grade II listed building. Presumably a structural survey would be limited to the unit, rather than the building? What should I expect from the seller's solicitor / management agent? Thank you for any advice

  5. Hi All, New to this forum and starting out my property investing journey - Interested in professional B2Ls in Birmingham going with a BRRR strategy as well as looking at small ground up developments in London and SE for bespoke (think standalone garages, small plots of land with planning potential which I flip at auction once planning granted or develop myself). Keen to experience an auction so will get myself down to one after lockdown! Quick question about those who have purchased properties at auction - I note the benefit of having a survey done however the cost being potentially
  6. Hello, First time posting - hoping somebody can please help We've just had the searches back on a terraced property we're buying, and the environmental searches have come back with moderate Groundwater flooding risk and significant surface water flooding risk... See attached map showing the site in the red box. The risk of flooding seems to be in the back garden. My husband and I are unsure of whether to take the leap or not - is this something we walk away from? Any tips on what we should consider or who to consult for further advice? Thank you!

  11. Hello I realise I should introduce myself rather than jumping straight in with questions, but I really only have one question to ask I've just put an offer in to buy a Grade II listed property. I'm using the equity from the sale of another property and won't be getting a mortgage, so I'm just questioning the £800 quote from the surveyors that the estate agent recommended. My understanding is that the surveyors don't actually 'test' anything (I've only ever bought one property before and am admittedly naive). It seems like a lot of money for someone to just '
  12. HI, I was hoping to get some advice. I am very close the exchange of contracts and my surveyor has picked up a discrepancy on the flat versus the plans. Basically the the Victorian home was converted into 3 flats about 10 years ago. there is building control approval for this however the plans for the approval show that 2 chimneys have been retained whilst the surveyor has pointed out they are in fact removed. The current owner says he has not done anything to the flat since he bought it just after they were converted into flats. My question is this, 1.
  13. Is it necessary to get a survey on a flat to be purchased. The building is the responsibility of the owner - assume leasehold
  14. Hello. I am an MSc Real Estate student. I’m trying to get people to partake in my dissertation research into Neighbourhood Planning on the urban fringe. I would be very grateful if anyone could spare a few minutes to complete my short survey. Any participation is greatly appreciated. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/3YWCXWN Many thanks
  15. Hello, I am currently conducting research on the topic of energy efficiency in the domestic private rented sector. If you own and rent out a property in London or Liverpool, could I please ask you to take part in this short survey? It is completely anonymous, which ensures your confidentiality is protected. https://annatsvetkova.typeform.com/to/rJhjno I will be happy to send you a copy of the finished study, as you might find the results useful to you. I would really appreciate it. Thank you Anna
  16. Hi everyone, newbie here. My tenant has recently reported signs of damp and patches of black mould. It's not too bad yet, and seems to just be due to poor building ventilation. I've been quoted £810 (including VAT) to have the mould patches treated with NVirol mould treatment system (basically just a specialised set of cleaning/repatching stuff) and have a continuous running extract fan installed. This seems a bit steep - having found the cost of the materials on the web, they total about $250, so it's about £550 for labour. Am I being ripped off? I'm also dubious about whether
  17. I'm in the process of purchasing a 1960's three bedroom semi. My surveyor has reported some cracks in an upstairs wall and suspects this may be due to part of a chimney breast being removed in the kitchen below. However without lifting floorboards he is unable to say whether any additional support has been put in place. Before proceeding I would like this issue explored further. Can anybody advise how best to approach this with the agent and/or vendor? Is it reasonable of me to expect them to provide this information or is it down to me to instruct and pay for a structural engineer to check
  18. Hello, I'm in the process of buying my first BTL and the searches have just come back. 1 - A medium risk of river flooding and a significant risk of surface water (pluvial) flooding within 25m of my property. 2 - The site is located in an area where some properties may be affected by natural ground subsidence. The property is a 1st floor 2 bed in a ten year old development and I seriously doubt the small stream/river is a major risk... but does anyone have any experience with this? Should I pay for further surveys? Check with insurance companies to see if this is an issue? Ch
  19. Hi All, We have just had an offer accepted on a 3 bed victorian terrace in Brighton, and would like to get it surveyed independently of the bank. Can anyone recommend a company that would do a thorough job (not too thorough - i don't need to asses the structural integrity)? Many thanks, Charlie
