HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Putney Heath and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Putney Heath property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Putney Heath property's state of repair along with information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when buying a building proximate to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including domestic waste material disposal. No one wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries include structurally instability. Health concerns like gut problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Putney Heath RICS surveyors will examine any structural issues linked to the site. Your lawyer will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark databases in addition to Merton Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Deteriorated timber

On the HomeBuyer Report, what are common Condition Rating 1 defects for joinery and finishes?

A 'green' condition rating of 1 confirms that no repairs are required, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration.

An example of this is discoloured metal or vinyl sidings. They are visually inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Any timber or PVC cladding fixed to the main walling will be investigated.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact should rain have on a Putney Heath property? If there is damage, will they be troublesome to fix?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However rainfall and the effect it can have on a property are overlooked by buyers. If you have investigated the house on a clear day, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that drainage are worth a closer look include corroded downspouts. This can lead to penetrating damp.

Fortunately, these defects are quite easy to fix if dealt with quickly.However, the damage caused, where not unblocked on a regular basis, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.
