HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in New Malden and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the New Malden property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the New Malden property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our New Malden property surveyor check for possible flooding, or whether flooding has affected the garden?

The lives of many homeowners in New Malden and across the UK have been seriously affected by flood damage. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. lime-based plaster. The RICS surveyor will usually recommend that the buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

No New Malden flood alerts have been found (source: Environment Agency).

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we would be advised to look out for if planning to buy a converted flat in New Malden near a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by local councils.

A Building Surveyors must possess local knowledge of local issues and any relation may have on the property. Property Prices is, more often than not, greater due to the areas being unspoilt. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in a poor state e.g. badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

RICS surveyors can be expected to note if the planned purchase looks to be is designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are conducted by your solicitor. Unconsented developments to the building will also be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.

Building Surveys on houses

Do we need to spend a bit more on the full structural survey if purchasing a neglected fifties bungalow in New Malden over a HomeBuyer Report?

Very Often called a Structural Survey by many agents and buyers, it is now defunct and and has been superseded by RICS and the right term is actually now the Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a mid 20th century of later New Malden home made out of conventional construction materials and methods. The Building Survey is certainly the appropriate one to go for the house described. Approximately 3 days after an exhaustive inspection of the accessible parts, a formal written report will be sent to you specifying in depth and serious insight in relation to the materials used for the construction of the house.

Be aware that a few caveats come with any survey - the New Malden based surveyor will not be able to (unless owners consent provided) open up the fabric of the building for example, or survey where hatches are over 3m above ground.
