HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in West Wimbledon and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the West Wimbledon property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you comprehensive details of the West Wimbledon property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered Victorian home in West Wimbledon.

Stucco is in fact smooth type of render. Usually stucco is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth and even finish. The finish is highly attractive and is often found on Regency buildings. Stucco is often prone to defect and West Wimbledon surveyors sometimes focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. water trapped behind paint

Another example of problems associated with stucco can possibly result be when moisture below DPCs which results in large areas of detachment. Re-covering problems with stucco can be dear as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can my Home Survey investigate this, and what defects will be reported on?

Clay soil can create a number of issues for property owners. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including uneven soil compaction. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. For example, separation of the skirting board from the floor may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Conservation area

Are there any problems we should be conscious of when planning to buy a house in West Wimbledon inside a conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors need to possess local knowledge of relevant local considerations and the connection they have on the property and its value. Property values will likely be more than prices outside the area which is down to the areas being in their original state. However many areas have been neglected and are in a state of neglect for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors are expected note if the home could be within a conservation area and Section I of a West Wimbledon Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are carried out by your conveyancer. Unconsented extensions to the property will also be commented on but these are really more a concern for your legal representative.
