HMO Residential Valuation in Potters Bar, Barnet, London, EN6

This was a valuation of a post war semi detached property of traditional cavity brick construction that was used as a house in multiple occupation (HMO)  We identified a single storey side extension and a first-floor side extension together with a rear conservatory. These required local authority consents for planning permission as well as building regulation approval.  We also noted that internal alterations to provide en-suite facilities  as part of the property conversion to a HMO also required building regulation approval.  We confirmed that a  license had been granted for use as a HMO for 6 tenants. 

RICS Homebuyer Survey Report, Kings Langley, Watford, WD4

A homebuyer survey was chosen by our client, as the property was a 1970’s detached house that had been altered and updated internally. A number of defects and issues were identified: There was moss growth to roofs. Moss can  cause deterioration of the   covering. It can lead to blockages in rainwater goods. Cement mortar fillets to the junctions between some roofs and  adjacent walls showed signs of shrinkage of the bedding  mortar. This will lead to deterioration and water ingress. Some unfinished guttering was also present. The seals to several of the double glazed units had failed causing misting on the glass.The timber door and threshold were weathered, and in need  of redecoration and making good to rot affected sections of framework,There was insufficient bracing  to the roof framework which could allow movement of the  trusses.

A 1980’s cluster house.

No specific issues or significant defects, but maintenance issues identified including window joinery requiring attention, and external boundary wall repairs.

RICS Homebuyer Survey and Report in Cheshunt, Waltham Cross, EN8

A Homebuyer Survey was chosen because this 1970’s extended semi detached house was being purchased under probate. Only minor issues such as upgrading services installations, and some flat roof maintenance issues were identified, providing our client with comfort to proceed. We advised that the cost of the works be established, and the purchase price renegotiated. 

RICS Homebuyer Survey Report, Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire, CM23

A homebuyer survey was chosen by our client, as the property was a 1950’s semi detached house that had been extended. A number of issues were discovered, including a rear valley gutter between two butterfly gabled roofs, with blocked guttering and a defective downpipe hopper. There were also some rusted rainwater goods, and a broken guttering joint. There was evidence that cavity wall insulation has been retrospectively installed.  In some circumstances cavity insulation can cause damp penetration and/or  result in accelerated corrosion of wall ties that will require remedial treatment. We also noted that some boundary walling had fractured, and was in need of attention.

I contacted Webster’s surveyors regarding a property and from the first phone call to the last I found this company... efficient, polite and professional. They are very reasonably priced, they attended the property quickly and the report was also with me quickly. The report was thorough and very easy to understand, and has helped me greatly with the issues found, which will determine if I proceed or not, potentially saving me thousands of pounds.Cannot recommend more

If you are buying a property, Home Surveys are a good way to avoid unexpected costs in the future. Having a trained surveyor look at the property will give you an idea of how much money you might need to spend after you buy it. Often the Surveyor’s advice can be used to negotiate the purchase price down if works are needed or to ask the seller to undertake works before exchange of contracts.

There are three main types of Home Surveys that be done:

1. Level 1 Survey (Condition Report) – This is the entry level survey and describes the condition of the property and highlights any potential risks. There is no advice or remedies for any issues raised within the report. This type of Survey is common for new build properties or properties in good condition

2. Level 2 Survey (HomeBuyer Report) – This is by far the most common report we provide. S. It is adequate for almost all types of properties and is more in depth that the condition report. It will highlight any evident structural issues any other potentially hidden problems. The surveys do not look past the floorboards or walls during their inspection.

3. Level 3 Survey (Building Survey and formerly known as a Structural Survey)– This report is the most in depth and is useful to people buying older or run-down properties as it highlights any potential problems, provides advice on how to deal with the more common problems and states the consequences of not dealing with them.

When buying a property, you want to be sure than your investment is safe, so it is important to have a Home Survey carried out to reduce any potential risks. Our building pathology specialist and Chartered Surveyor has close to 30 years of experience and has helped thousands of clients. If you would like to find out more, speak to our team today.


All of our team have focused their careers on residential Valuation and Surveys. Residential property is at the forefront of our business and as a result we have seen a vast range of properties. We’ve valued and Surveyed everything from studio flats to freeholds of large apartment blocks, from small bungalows to large mansion houses. 

Market Valuations can be for a range of purposes such as –

1) Are you paying the right amount for a property

2) Combined with a Survey, possibly if you’re considering buying at auction

3) To help a tax assessment for Capital Gains tax or Inheritance tax

4) Dividing assets in a failed marriage or other partnership

5) Staircasing to buy additional equity in a Shared ownership or shared equity property including Help to buy loans

6) Reselling a Housing Association Shared ownership property

7) Releasing a restrictive covenant that affects land or property

Many Valuations should comply with the RICS Red Book (Global Standards and the UK National Supplement). Though any RICS Surveyor can provide these, those who have achieved RICS Registered Valuer status which all of our qualified Surveyors have, have satisfied our regulatory body they are competent and experienced. 


The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) is the worlds leading professional body for standards in the built and natural environment. It is the benchmark for professionals in all aspects of property and it regulates the surveying profession ensuring that its members uphold the highest standards.

Websters Surveyors are regulated by the RICS meaning that you can be certain we are a company that acts ethically, professionally and with integrity, always providing a high standard of service. 

Our commitment is demonstrated through our regulation as we choose to uphold the world class professional standards set out by the RICS. Our Chartered Surveyors and RICS Registered Valuers reflect the principles of the institution and that can be seen in all the work we do.
