HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Merton Park and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Merton Park property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Merton Park property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I am planning to buy a property in SW19 for an asking price of £1, 005, 258. What different issues will your Merton Park surveyor consider during a Home Survey ?

There is a vast array of things which could affect property values from national factors such as interest rates to its proximity to other factors sought after amenities. One method is to look at house values achieved in the area for comparable properties.

The means house prices registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £982, 358, which is £22, 900 less than the amount you are intending to pay and the flat/house average was £709,

461. The Coach House, 31, Camp Road, London, Merton, Greater London, SW19 4UW a detached house sold for £800, 000 .

The only way for home buyers to get an independent home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 16th Century cottage. Will upkeep costs be higher?

Some purchasers have considered buying a house with personality, like a coach house or converted stable. For traditionally-built Merton Park property, age, however, can sometimes be an issue. Houses employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to repair. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. This can mean that it is all the more vital that you get a building survey prior to exchanging. Contact your surveyor for more information.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a property in Merton Park but are worried about insects - Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Property purchasers in Merton Park should know that is not a requirement that a seller to disclose a vermin problem. Regrettably, vermin can impact a home's worth and affect the health of residents. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. As some vermin can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential.
