HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Upper Tooting and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Upper Tooting property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Upper Tooting property's state of repair along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when purchasing a building next to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. commercial refuse. Nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health problems for example congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Upper Tooting will flag up structural problems resulting from the site. Your solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database and Wandsworth Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the period property we are meaning to buy we noticed that there were damaged electrical sockets; will the surveyor advise the wiring and fusebox?

During a Home Buyers Survey in Upper Tooting a RICS surveyor will typically mention the electrical system if it is apparent that the electrics are in a hazardous state of repair. A Home surveyor should also report on things like inspecting the state of any fitted appliances like storage heaters or whether there is an on-peak/off-peak mains supply. A check for the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey in Upper Tooting.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how does the surveyor work it out?

Homebuyer Reports include a professional valuation and a cost of reinstatement as part of the report. To estimate the valuation the surveyor will relate to local property market knowledge as well as other factors about the property e.g. style of architecture The valuer will also consider construction methods and make certain other assumptions, for example the ground is not land filled. Surveyors disregard certain things like sales incentives.

Additional local area assumptions, like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like busy roads, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
