    Rebuild cost figures.

    Does anyone have current rough figures used to estimate rebuild costs in London? Detached listed house about 300sqm over four floors including semi-basement and loft (based on footprint, rather than floorspace).

    Assume I know nothing.

    You could try the calculator on https://abi.bcis.co.uk/ but the only accurate way would be to use a professional surveyor.

      Thanks. From past experience I don't think the calc works for listed buildings. Not after the accurate figure - that will come later. Looking for guide figures used in the industry to make quick judgements and for comparing build costs year on year.

        Apologies, I'm afraid I do not know of any calculators or guides that work for listed buildings. I guess the nature of the fact they are listed means they are not standard and therefore there is no rule of thumb or guideline for their rebuild cost meaning a surveyor is the only way to get an idea.

        If you have had a recent survey, you could refer to https://www.rics.org/uk/products/dat...ng-cost-index/ which provides index linking figures to give an idea of how the sum insured would change year on year.

          Thanks. That's a helpful chart. Unfortunately it is much longer ago that I had an actual valuation . I've booked in a valuation.

            Has your valuation for rebuild cost exceeded £500 per sq ft ? Its very tricky in Central London area where each floor can sell for £1 Mil or more.

            • Leak to downstairs flat
              by CenturionX
              Hi there.

              I was recently notified by my agent that the downstairs flat had contacted my tenants that there was a leak from my flat so a plumber was sent the same day to investigate, this was on the 4th June and they repaired the leak temporarily while awaiting parts. A few days later the...

              Of course, you could perhaps argue that they didn't take adequate action to mitigate the damage or you could claim off the buildings insurance but to be honest for £750 tax deductible I would write it off as business expense ...

              Not really, but what can you do?

              This happens to me all the time having ground floor flats. Tenants never report anything until the dripping starts to damage their own things.

              You may be able to claim back the the upstairs flat contribution to annual insurance ( paid in advance by you ) through the sale completion statement . But you should discuss with your conveyancing soicitor first.

              I am a freeholder of a converted house. I am selling my flat and retaining half the freehold and i am also sorting out the insurance for the building. The renewal is next week but the new owners do not move in until the end of the month.

              If I pay for the insurance upfront for the year and...

              It is a bloody mess! I am keeping a share of the freehold because, as you say my share is being transferred to the new owners. However, as I have the entire freehold and the leasee in the basement doesn't want to purchase a share of the freehold or extend. therefore, I will still have a share.

              Simple, you wont own the flat on the1st July, therefore you must get from the new owner pre payment for the cost of insurance. all this should have been known and accounted for ages ago.
              And why when you have sold are you keeping half the freehold. Your frreehold portion should be assigned ( for

              Many thanks. there are two flats but one is a one bed basement and the other is a two bedroom over two floors and in the original lease for the basement, it states that the basement pays one third and the upstairs pays two thirds.

              Until now, we as the freeholder and owner of the top floor...

              How many flats are there ? -- 3 ?
              Each flat in that case pays one third. ( or one quarter - if 4 flats etc.)
              Leaseholders re imburse the freeholder, so why was the money not collected previously.
              You set the expences 1 year in advance for all out goings, and that includes the insurance.

              Dear Forum

              Last year I had 2 tenants from hell, who used my property as a place to sell drugs from and basically wanted to remove all the other tenants from the licensed HMO.

              They did this by a combination of violence and by constantly causing malcious damage to the property,...
