HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Warlingham and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Warlingham property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Warlingham property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My partner spotted signs of an infestation in the kitchen. Should we get a surveyor?

Warlingham home buyers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to report on an infestation. This danger should be taken seriously. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove.

Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include chemical treatment.RICS guidelines on the issue of pests are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your Warlingham surveyor.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a house next to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including commercial waste disposal. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include heavy metals. Health problems for example spina bifida have been associated with landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Warlingham will notice any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark database in addition to Tandridge Local Authority and advise you .

Damage resulting from flooding

We're intending to purchase in Warlingham. Is there a flood risk, and will the property surveyor check indications of flooding?

Flooding in Warlingham can cause severe damage to both contents and property. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a home survey will inform your decision. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Less expensive preventative measures include air brick covers. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.
