HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in New Malden and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the New Malden property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the New Malden property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying an old converted barn. Will maintenance costs be higher?

Many buyers would like to own a home with character, such as a farmstead. For traditionally-built New Malden property, age, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Buildings featuring traditional methods can be expensive to repair. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of property in a conservation area. This may mean that it is all the more vital that you

get a building survey prior to exchanging. Discuss this with the building surveyor for more detail.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the New Malden home we plan to buy - Is a Full Structural Survey advisable?

New Malden home buyers should know that is not a requirement that the vendor to mention a pest issue. An affected building may not always be easy to identify. As an example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include insecticides. If you strongly suspect an issue with moths, or any pest, speak to your surveyor

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Property Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) regency home in New Malden that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually just a form of render. Usually it is layered over brick to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The finish is very attractive and was often found on Victorian and Regency houses. it can be prone to defect and New Malden Homebuyer Reports frequently highlight any number of problems such as horizontal visible cracking that follows the underlying mortar joints. Other issues could be when dampness beneath windows which results in detachment requiring raking back and reapplying. Re-covering Stucco problems may be costly as the skills are getting harder to find.
