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 .

Defective door frame

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Raynes Park what might a green light rating mean for 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

An example defect for this is a damaged door frame. External doors are checked, assuming keys are available. Generally, the thresholds of doorways are also surveyed, checking that access is level, water is excluded from leaking into the property, etc. Condition rating one indicates that no repairs are necessary. Elements of Section E marked as condition rating 1 may however still require regular maintenance. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show how concerning each aspect of the report is.

House Prices

What considerations will a Raynes Park RICS chartered surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in Raynes Park ?

Any number of issues that can add to or subtract from house prices, for example the amount of ground rent payable or if there is any evidence of fungal decay. .

The best way to get a professional property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report in Raynes Park which includes a professional valuation as standard. Your qualified RICS surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

The RICS chartered surveyor will always visit the building as well as considering the multiple items that might affect the value of property.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have learnt that Raynes Park residential property built on clay soil can experience problems. Will the Home Buyers Survey consider this?

A common source of queries that surveyors face from home buyers is subsidence, particularly in areas where the soil is rich in clay, with compression of layers of the sub-soil and swelling of the soil being relatively common. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs, such as separation of the skirting board from the floor. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Raynes Park, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.
