HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Lingfield and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Lingfield property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Lingfield property's condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My wife spotted signs of vermin in the study. What can we do?

Properties in Lingfield are not usually impacted by serious cases of pests, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. Evidence may not be easy to find, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Treatment for an infestation may include use of poison. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we look into downspouts? And could it affect the property value?

I find it odd that heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on property are ignored. If you have only seen the property in on a dry day, issues may have been hidden. Luckily, issues with rainwater goods are quite easy to resolve for a reasonable cost, unless they are not unblocked on a regular basis. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Conservation area

Are there any considerations I would be advised to verify if buying a flat in Lingfield in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local authority. Lingfield surveyors must possess local knowledge of relevant local area factors and the effect they have with the property and its value. House prices are typically higher than non conservation area equivalents due to them being in their original state. However a large number have been neglected and are in poor condition for example - the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors will report whether the building might be is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Lingfield Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are raised by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unauthorised changes to the property may also be noted but these are really more a concern for the lawyer. Kate Limbert Solicitors are based in 6 Godstone Road, Tandridge, Surrey, RH7 6BW will be happy to advise further. Tel: 01342 837765
