HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Molesey and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

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

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Molesey property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations create issues? I am buying a home in Molesey. Can we expect the Molesey House Survey to mention this?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Drought, for instance, can have a shrinking effect on clay soil, squeezing the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable cracked plaster, to complete structural failure.

Taking precautions, such as after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Molesey surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as professional fees) and how is it worked out

Molesey Homebuyer Reports an independent valuation in addition to a Reinstatement Cost. In order to determine an accurate value estimate your chartered surveyor will call upon experience of property in Molesey and other factors about the property e.g. accommodation Surveyors also examine construction type and will use other assumptions, for example the building connected to mains services such as electricity.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Molesey conjectures, for example problematic roads and access, are made as well as any significant local environmental problems like industrial buildings, also being considered.

What should we be worried about when buying a house near to a rubbish tip

Surveyors in Molesey will flag up structural issues connected with the landfill. Your lawyer will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark database as well as Elmbridge Local Authority and advise you .
