HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Mortlake and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Mortlake property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Mortlake property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Substandard guttering

For the Mortlake HomeBuyer Report, what effect will a green light rating have on rainwater pipes and gutters?

Green, or condition rating 1, indicates that no repair is currently needed. Elements of Section E marked as condition rating 1 may however still require regular maintenance. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention. One example would be poor quality or inefficient downspouts. External areas covered by E3 are inspected visually with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. E3 does not cover internal parts of the water system, such as possible defects such as blockages in sewer pipes.

House Prices

We are hoping to be buying a property in SW14. The vendor is asking £400, 499. What considerations will a Mortlake surveyor allow for when valuing house prices in Mortlake during a professional valuation ?

There are many factors which could affect property values for instance the amount of ground rent payable or the number of bathrooms. It often helps to compare with the prices of flat achieved in Mortlake at the same time for comparable properties. The mean flat price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £376, 099, which is £24, 400 less than the amount being asked. The house/flat average was £655, 623. 247, Upper Richmond Road West, East Sheen, London, Richmond Upon Thames, Greater London, SW14 8QS a leasehold flat recently sold for £115, 000 .

In order for home buyers to get a formal house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as an integral component. A qualified RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The seller said subsidence has been an issue. What solutions are to available to resolve this?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. New properties, for example, will need to settle under the home's own weight. Less common than subsidence, heave describes the movement of earth upwards.

Merely superficial cracks not caused by subsidence can be repaired with filler and repainted. In some cases, the presence of buried organic material, which then rots or breaks down, can also destabilise the structure. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.
