HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Hurlingham and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Hurlingham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Hurlingham property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any issues we should consider if planning to buy a home in Hurlingham in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by local councils.

Your surveyor must have local knowledge of local considerations and any relation they have with the building and its value. The price of property is generally greater owing to them resisting change. However a large number have been neglected and are in a state e.g. the addition of PVC windows and doors

RICS surveyors are expected inform you if the house looks like it may be within a conservation area and Section I of your Hurlingham Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are carried out by your legal representation. Unconsented changes to the property may be advised, however these should be concern for the solicitor. Gibson Young are based in 60 St. John's Road, Wandsworth, London, SW11 2QS will be prepared to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 0207 924 2919

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the house I expect to move into, it appeared that there could be corrosion of the wiring; will the surveyor report on electrical defects?

When carrying out a Building Survey in Hurlingham a surveyor will usually report on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in a hazardous state.

This will include a general check of the superficial parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as things like confirming the condition of the fixed electrical appliances, for example water heaters. Inspecting the documentation from any recent PIR conducted by an electrician should be part of the survey. Reporting on any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey in Hurlingham .

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Hurlingham. Can a residential surveyor check for any flooding?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m houses and flats are at a high risk of flooding damage, and owning a property in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes.

Flood water can enter a house in Hurlingham through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Less expensive preventative measures include air brick covers. The house surveyor will usually recommend that the purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Fortunately, no recent Hurlingham flood alerts have been announced (source: Environment Agency).
