HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Tadworth and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Tadworth property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the Tadworth property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Tadworth property's general condition in addition to information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be insects at the building we're buying, but we are not certain - Should we get a RICS surveyor?

Buyers should know that is not a requirement that a seller report on an infestation. This danger should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include use of insecticides and removal or excision of affected timber. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled property in Tadworth create issues for a new owner? Are there specific defects to consider?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Problems which impact stone-built properties can vary greatly, with issues like weathered stone being quote common. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to properties, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used around doors and window frames. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Tadworth should be able to supply local stone.

House Prices

I intend to acquire a house in Tadworth (KT20) for £406, 824. What things will a Tadworth surveyor consider when carrying out a RICS valuation ?
