HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Putney Vale and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Putney Vale property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Putney Vale property's condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor examine on a stipple rendered (stucco) house in Putney Vale.

Stucco is really just a smooth and flat render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick that dries to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is very attractive and is common on some Victorian and Regency houses. Stucco is often problematic and Putney Vale Homebuyer Reports can detail any number of problems such as moisture trapped beneath paint coatings. Other potential problems might be when moisture enters beneath DPCs that results in the render detaching requiring raking back and reapplying. Re-coating Stucco problems may be costly as skilled tradesmen are getting more difficult to find.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a house proximate to a landfill site

Landfill Sites take many forms for example: industrial refuse disposal. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Risks include hazardous chemicals. Health issues such as spina bifida have been associated with landfill sites .

Putney Vale RICS surveyors will examine structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as Merton Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations I should be conscious of when buying a converted house in Putney Vale near a conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are many thousands of conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local authorities. Surveyors in Putney Vale are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of relevant local issues and any bearing they have with the property. House prices are typically higher owing to conservation areas being preserved.

RICS surveyors will report if the planned purchase looks to be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Putney Vale Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are conducted by your conveyancer. Unauthorised developments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be reported, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.
