About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Wallington

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Wallington and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Wallington property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer comprehensive details of the Wallington property's condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are buying in Wallington. What will we need to pay attention to when buying an old building? Will the age of the house be an issue?

Some purchasers would like to own a old, characterful home one day. Use of traditional methods, however, can sometimes be an issue. Houses built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect can high levels of rainfall have on our new Wallington home?

Both in Wallington, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately this issue is ignored by house purchasers. If you have only visited the house in on a sunny day, defects may not have been obvious. In most cases, this is usually easy to remedy. However, if the drains are not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls we would need to on guard for when buying a property in Wallington near a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Wallington must have sufficient knowledge of local area issues and any effect they have with the building. Values is usually enhanced as a result of them being largely unspoilt However many areas have been neglected and are in disrepair for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors are trained to note whether the location is/might be so designated and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are raised by your solicitor. Unsympathetic modifications to the building may be advised but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.
