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 .

Other external areas of the property

In the HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E9 - Other' include?

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. As buyers in Warlingham are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show how concerning each aspect of the report is. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific house being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.

For a Warlingham house, one issue is cantilevered joist problems. This category is used for external elements that require reporting that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Your surveyor can provide more details if required.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations I would be advised to verify if purchasing a converted house in Warlingham in conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by the local council. Your surveyor must have sufficient knowledge of local considerations and the relation may have with the home. House prices are generally significantly higher owing to them being in their original state. However a growing number have been neglected and are in a state e.g. increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Surveyors are expected report whether the building could be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are carried out by your legal representation. Unapproved modifications to the property may be reported in the Warlingham survey, however these should be concern for the lawyer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect can wet weather have on our new Warlingham house?

Regular rainfall is common in Warlingham and across the country, but the impact heavy rain can have on buildings is ignored. For example, leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage may indicate that the drainage systems are worth a closer look. Blocked rainwater goods can result in lasting damage to the fabric of a home.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy. If left untreated, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
