HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Carshalton Beeches and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Carshalton Beeches property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Carshalton Beeches property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any factors we would be advised to be conscious of when purchasing a house in Carshalton Beeches in a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have knowledge of local area factors and the bearing they have with the home and its value. Prices is, more often than not, greater which is down to the areas being largely unspoilt

Surveyors will tell you if the property might be in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Carshalton Beeches Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are raised during the conveyancing process. Unauthorised adjustments to the property may be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The next-door neighbour mentioned that the had been issues with loose tiles, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What should we look for?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors in Carshalton Beeches. A large number of properties will suffer roof maintenance problems. From tie beams to sheathing, all aspects of the roof will be considered, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Roof maintenance can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal. Call Absolute of 167 Welbeck Road, Carshalton, SM5 1TG on 020 8644 2948 for an estimate.

In the HomeBuyer Report what are common Condition rating 3 defects for 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

Buyers should be aware that although drainage is reported on in this section, other aspects of the water system are referred to elsewhere possible defects such as blockages in sewer pipes. Leaking downspouts is one example. Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. In some cases, such a rating may indicate further expert opinion is needed before an accurate statement can be given. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Red, amber and green ratings give property purchasers indicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.
