HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Nine Elms and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Nine Elms property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will give a thorough analysis of the Nine Elms property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will an infestation affect the purchase price of a home in Nine Elms. Will the HomeBuyer Report investigate this?

Pests like woodworm may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Nine Elms.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Treatment for vermin may include use of insecticides and removal of infected furniture.

Conservation area

Are there any issues I would be advised to check out when planning to buy a house in Nine Elms in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are thousands of conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with the local authority.

Your surveyor must have local knowledge of local issues and any effect may have with the property and its value. The value of homes is, more often than not, greater which is down to the areas being preserved. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in poor condition e.g. ugly satellite dishes

Property surveyors will inform you if the property could be classified as such and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are conducted by your conveyancer. Unapproved developments that do not have Local Authority approval should be commented on, however these should be concern for the lawyer.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Nine Elms. What will we need to look out for when purchasing a building constructed in 1710? Will the property's age be a concern?

Some buyers in Nine Elms hope to own a home with character, such as a Medieval cottage. The age of a structure, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts, and Houses built with traditional methods can be costly to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of Nine Elms's conservation areas. This may mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller. If you are uncertain, speak to the Nine Elms surveyor for more detail.
