Home Buyers Survey in Mortlake

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Mortlake and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Mortlake property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Mortlake property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the building I am interested to buy it appeared that there was no RCD on the fuse board , does a the surveyor report on the general state of the electrical system?

When carrying out a Mortlake Home Survey the surveyor will typically report on the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in an unsafe condition. This will include a general check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of any uncovered parts of the wiring and other possible problems relating to things like confirming the category of the electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. .

Examining the evidence of the most recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey.

House Prices

We are hoping to be buying a property in SW14. The vendor is asking £400, 499. What considerations will a Mortlake surveyor allow for when valuing house prices in Mortlake during a professional valuation ?

There are many factors which could affect property values for instance the amount of ground rent payable or the number of bathrooms. It often helps to compare with the prices of flat achieved in Mortlake at the same time for comparable properties. The mean flat price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £376, 099, which is £24, 400 less than the amount being asked. The house/flat average was £655, 623. 247, Upper Richmond Road West, East Sheen, London, Richmond Upon Thames, Greater London, SW14 8QS a leasehold flat recently sold for £115, 000 .

In order for home buyers to get a formal house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as an integral component. A qualified RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Mortlake property built in the mid 70s, but it has clay foundations. Does a Mortlake Property Survey discuss soil composition the report, and what defects will be reported on?

The content of soil around the foundations of a property will have an impact. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including shrinking of clay soil. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. Visible results may be anything from small cracks in the drawing room wall to a sticking door in the drawing room. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Mortlake, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
