HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Raynes Park and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Raynes Park property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Raynes Park property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented that there is some brown asbestos sealant concealed in the house. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials for example fireplace.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in fire doors.

All forms are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered however, not to move it. Professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. Your surveyor will mention potential asbestos during the Raynes Park survey and should recommend relevant tests.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we would be advised to be conscious of when purchasing a building in Raynes Park inside a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by the local council. Your surveyor need to possess relevant knowledge of local factors and any effect may have on the property. Property Prices will be higher due to conservation areas being unspoilt. However many conservation areas have fallen into a state e.g. the removal front garden walls

Surveyors are trained to inform you if the home is/might be is so classified and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will suggest additional due diligence and enquiries are raised by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unconsented adjustments to the property may also be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for your legal representative.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when purchasing a flat near to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. commercial rubbish disposal. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Worries might include complex organic chemicals. Potential health issues such as congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Raynes Park will consider any structural problems resulting from the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out conveyancing searches of the British Geological data sets as well as Merton Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
