About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Earlsfield

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Earlsfield and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Earlsfield property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Earlsfield property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould has created issues for us in the old property. What will our building surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

This often causes anxiety for home buyers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Houses across Earlsfield can often hide roofing woes. From fascias to valley gutters, the roof structure as a whole will be considered. Your house surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

High quotes for roofing jobs (such as insulating the attic) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable Earlsfield roofing contractor.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns I would need to consider if buying a property in Earlsfield in a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas in the UK which are designated by local authorities. Surveyors in Earlsfield must possess local knowledge of local area issues and the connection may have on the building and its value. Values tends to be enhanced owing to them retaining original features. However many are falling into poor condition e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Surveyors are expected note if the home looks to be is so classified and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Unapproved modifications that do not have Local Authority approval should be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by the lawyer. Makka Solicitors Ltd are based in 44 Upper Tooting Road, Wandsworth, London, SW17 7PD and may be happy help you with further information. Tel: 0208 767 9090

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What subsidence-related matters will the Surveyor reveal?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. New properties, for example, will need to settle beneath the building's own weight. Less common than subsidence, heave describes the movement of earth upwards.

Subsidence can be caused by a range of factors. One such issue is that soil on sloping ground is not as stable as that flat ground. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer could then become unsteady and slip down the incline. Inside the property, keep an eye out for doors and windows which stick.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home, with no underpinning required. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.
