HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Tooting and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Tooting property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Tooting property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it calculated?

Homebuyer Reports include an independent valuation and a cost of reinstatement. To estimate the property's value your independent surveyor will use local property market knowledge and other considerations relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. Surveyors also reflect on construction type and will draw upon key assumptions such as no damaging building techniques have been employed.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there is an absence of any impossible to

rectify legal problems such as Rights of access and egress over all communal areas. Advice should be sought from your solicitor or licensed conveyancer. during the legal process.

Further Tooting assumptions, such as stairway access to a flat or connection to sewers, are made in addition to local environmental issues like local industry, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a property but are worried about bugs. What can we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. An affected building may not always be easy to identify.

For example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. As some vermin can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential.RICS guidelines on the issue of vermin are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your chartered surveyor.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect will high levels of rainfall have on our new home in Tooting? Will the RICS surveyor report on this? Where there is work that needs to be done, what should we do?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the impact heavy rainfall can have on homes in Tooting is not given the attention it deserves by property buyers. For instance, mildew or damp in the roof will likely suggest that the downspouts are under performing. Blocked rainwater goods can result in penetrating damp.

Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are usually easy to remedy.
