HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Wimbledon and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Wimbledon property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give comprehensive details of the Wimbledon property's condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 18th Century property in Wimbledon. What consequences will the structure's cruck frame have on repairs?

Many purchasers would be interested in owning a house with personality, like a Georgian terrace. A building's age, however, can worry purchasers. Buildings built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Construction materials, such as original bricks, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property.

Window frame

On a Wimbledon HomeBuyer Report, what could a a green light rating mean for windows?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike some more complex survey reports. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention. Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1. Elements of Section E marked as condition rating 1 may however still require regular maintenance. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the Wimbledon home. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.

Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. A rotted sash window is an example of this.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there may be powdery white asbestos duct connectors situated in the home. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a pernicious substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials such as fire doors. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in duct connectors. Technically all forms including white are deadly and can lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful never to break the asbestos and expert advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will report on suspected asbestos during the survey and should recommend relevant tests.
