HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Upper Tooting and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Upper Tooting property's state of repair along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Shall I upgrade to a full structural survey when looking into a converted thirties home near Upper Tooting as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Recurrently referred to as a Full Structural Survey by house buyers, this survey is no longer available has actually been given a new title by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the right name is now the RICS Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report is enough if buying a mid century or later Upper Tooting house of conventional construction materials and methods. If you are intending to buy a modified home like a dilapidated house in Upper Tooting, this is the most suitable choice to have carried out. Following a thorough visual inspection of all accessible areas a written report (pdf and written copy) will be dispatched to the purchaser going through any critical information concerning the materials used for the construction of the house.

There are certain limitations with a Building Survey to consider because a surveyor is not in a position to open up the fabric of the of the Upper Tooting house e.g. removing secured panels.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled homes cause issues for a new owner? Which major related issues should we consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Brown Woodkirk Sandstone to Totternhoe Limestone. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to property, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decorative elements. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Repair advice often includes use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Conservation area

Are there any factors I would be advised to check out if purchasing a flat in Upper Tooting in a conservation area?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by the local council. Your surveyor need to possess knowledge of local area issues and the connection may have on the property. Prices is typically enhanced owing to the areas being in their original state. However a large number have been neglected and are in disrepair e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

RICS surveyors will note whether the location looks to be within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are conducted during the conveyancing process. Unconsented changes to the property may also be reported, however these should be concern for your lawyer.
