HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Walton and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Walton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Walton property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect could heavy rainfall have on a home?

Both in Walton, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately this issue is not considered by property buyers. If you have visited the house on a dry day, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that gutters are at risk include damp stains around drainage, and may lead to collapsed drains or overflowing septic tank. Fortunately, these defects are quite easy to repair. If not cared for, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

House Prices

Is £179, 295 a reasonable price to buy a flat in KT12 for and what considerations will a surveyor allow for when valuing house prices in Walton ?

There is a vast array of things that might affect the price of property like noise from flight paths or whether the property is sold under probate. It may help to set against the prices of flat achieved in the area for similar properties. The mean flat price registered between July and October in 2012 was £203, 795, which is £24, 500 more than the selling price (£339, 910 was the blended house/flat average). 51, Sullivans Reach, Walton-On-Thames, Elmbridge, Surrey, KT12 2QB a leasehold flat recently sold for £215, 000 .

The most reliable way for you to get a professional property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation by default. Your local surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

A professional RICS surveyor will always go to the home as well as considering the long list of things that might affect house prices.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a Walton home but are worried about pests. Should we get a house surveyor?

Houses are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. An affected property may not always be easy to identify, for example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Remedies to insect infestation can include use of insecticides or destruction of tainted materials.RICS guidelines on the issue of pest problems are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your home surveyor.
