HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Fetcham and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Fetcham property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Fetcham property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about if buying a home near to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. hazardous waste disposal. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Concerns include chemicals like dioxins. Health concerns for example downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveys in Fetcham will examine structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological databases in addition to Mole Valley Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Conservation area

Are there any things we would be advised to check out if buying a building in Fetcham near a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local authority. Fetcham surveyors must have local knowledge of relevant local area factors and any bearing they have with the building. The price of property is, more often than not, higher than non conservation area equivalents as a result of them retaining original features.

Surveyors are trained to note if the house is or might be is so classified and Section I of the Fetcham Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are carried out by your legal adviser. Unauthorised modifications to the property should be commented on, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.

Damaged Render

What will a Property Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco coated Victorian home in Fetcham that I wish to buy.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is in fact a specific type of render. Usually stucco is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. It is highly aesthetic and is common on some Victorian and Georgian homes for example. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Fetcham can detail issues for instance when movement of the underlying wall results in cracks. Other issues could result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads above such as cracking under the eaves. Re-covering problems may be difficult as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting harder to find.
