HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Putney and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Putney property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Putney property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I intend to acquire a house in SW15. The vendor is asking £1, 113, 381. What factors will Putney qualified surveyor take into account in the process of a RICS survey ?

There are a great number of factors which could affect property values ranging from whether correct consents are in place to whether there are any conservation area infringements. You can try to compare with prices recorded in the same area for comparable properties.

The average house price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £1, 117, 781, which is £4, 400 more than the asking price. The average for houses and flats was £577, 700. 15, Genoa Avenue, London, Wandsworth, Greater London, SW15 6DY a detached property sold for £3, 000, 000 .

The only way to get an accurate property valued is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as standard.

Conservation area

Are there any problems we should consider if planning to buy a building in Putney near a conservation area, particularly in relation to property values?

There are 9, 300 of conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by local councils.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of local issues and the connection may have with the building and its value. The value of homes will be higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to them retaining their original character.

Surveyors are expected inform you whether the location looks like it may be within a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Putney Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are carried out by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unconsented developments to the building should be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by the solicitor.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Surveyor take into account on a stucco coated regency house in Putney.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is really just a form of solid render. Typically stucco render is applied to brick to form a smooth flat finish. The coating is very attractive and is common on some Victorian and Georgian properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and Putney Building Surveys sometimes detail potentially expensive to remedy problems such as horizontal pattern like cracking that follows the underlying mortar joints. Other potential problems can possibly result be when dampness gets in below DPCs that results in large areas of detachment. Re-coating problems can be difficult and costly as skilled tradesmen are getting more difficult to find.
