HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Worcester Park and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Worcester Park property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Worcester Park property's condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Worcester Park House Survey Quote via our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Conservatory

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Worcester Park house, what are common defects an red light rating impacting conservatory and porches?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give home purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, with a minimum of technical jargon. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green to what extent each defect requires attention. Red, or condition rating three, indicates particularly concerning issues. 'Red' defects may also need further investigation by a qualified specialist before a full assessment can be made. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Worcester Park home being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. If a Worcester Park home does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. The type and condition of

these parts will be considered too. Rot and insect damage to conservatory joists would be reported here, for example.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Worcester Park home built in the mid 60s, but it has clay foundations. Can my House Survey consider this?

Whether a property was built in 17010 or 20010, factors as varied as wood boring insects or mould can create problems for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in several issues. Specific problems include swelling of the soil, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable cracks along the garage wall, to complete structural failure. Steps like swift repair of any collapsed drains can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a house proximate to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill take many forms for example: domestic refuse. No one really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns include methane gas generation. Potential health problems like abdominal wall problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Worcester Park surveyors will find structural issues connected with the site. Your conveyancer will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological database and Merton Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .
