HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Sutton property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Sutton Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Conservatory

On a Sutton HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of Condition rating 3 defects impacting 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

One example would be settlement or other movement in a conservatory. Section E7 defects include those affect any porch or conservatory attached to the home. Safety hazards, including floor-level glass and blocked escape routes from upper storey windows will also be mentioned in the report. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of how concerning each aspect of the report is. A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our agent mentioned that the had been issues with loose slates, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What does a surveyor in Sutton pay attention to during the survey?

This is frequently addressed by chartered surveyors. A large number of properties will suffer damage to the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. eaves. The chartered surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Re-flashing and re-tiling, among other aspects of roof repair, can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable roofing specialist. Contact Series A Roofing of 197 Albion Rd, Sutton, SM2 5TD on 020 8643 5776 for a quote.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems I would need to consider when purchasing a property in Sutton in the vicinity of a conservation area?

A Building Surveyors must possess knowledge of relevant local area factors and any bearing they have with the building and its value. House prices will likely be enhanced due to them being in good order. However many of them are falling into have fallen into poor condition e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

RICS surveyors are trained to report if the planned purchase might be is designated and Section I of a Sutton Homebuyer Report will recommend additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted as part of the legal process. Unconsented developments to the property should be reported in the Sutton survey but these are really more a concern for your legal representative.
