HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Norbiton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Norbiton property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Norbiton property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when purchasing a home next to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including domestic refuse. No one ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health problems for example downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Norbiton will notice structural problems resulting from the site. Your legal representative will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark databases in addition to Kingston upon Thames Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Building Surveys on houses

Should we commission a full structural survey if buying a shabby thirties cottage near Norbiton over a HomeBuyer Report?

Commonly referred to as the Full Structural Survey by many home buyers, this survey is now defunct and has actually been replaced by RICS and the correct name is actually now the Building Survey. When looking into purchasing an unconventional Norbiton house - such as a property in poor condition house - this is the right property survey. The written report should outline in depth and far-reaching advice about the buildings construction in conjunction with any defects after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building.

There will be a few limitations with a Building Survey to bear in mind as RICS chartered surveyor will not be able to (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the Norbiton house, an example being undoing electrical fittings.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about vermin. What should we do?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Norbiton home may not be raised during the conveyancing. When purchasing a home, this matter should be borne in mind. An affected home may not always be easy to identify.

For example, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Remedies to pests can include professional cleaning.
