About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Raynes Park

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Raynes Park and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Raynes Park property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Raynes Park property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance brings up bad memories for us. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does a building surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

Residential property in Raynes Park in good condition can be hiding serious damp, among a range of other roofing issues. Every element should be checked, e.g. sheathing. Your property surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Raynes Park, but it is a health and safety necessity. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a builder in Raynes Park for the job itself.

House Prices

What considerations will a Raynes Park RICS chartered surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in Raynes Park ?

Any number of issues that can add to or subtract from house prices, for example the amount of ground rent payable or if there is any evidence of fungal decay. .

The best way to get a professional property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report in Raynes Park which includes a professional valuation as standard. Your qualified RICS surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

The RICS chartered surveyor will always visit the building as well as considering the multiple items that might affect the value of property.

Gas flame

Does a qualified RICS surveyor check out the condition of the gas flues?

A surveyor will visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the location of the meter where relevant, as well as gas associated gas installations in the house, for instance chimney breasts. However, the Raynes Park qualified RICS surveyor won't remove any external fittings nor will they do any tests whatsoever on the appliances or system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially dangerous, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer without delay.
