Top tips for a Berrylands Home Buyers Survey


The majority of houses in the Berrylands area were built in the 1930s and have features that are similarly found in housing types of the inter-war period.

Although most of the houses are semi-detached, there are also many detached properties and a small number of flats. On the end of Grand Avenue and Elmbridge Avenue, there is a cluster of Modernist Art Deco houses which were built as part of the Parkside estate in 1934.

The neighbourhood is primarily residential. It houses a large commuter population which enjoys the great transport links you normally find in most London boroughs.

Properties within the Berrylands area have been at risk of naturally occurring ground stability issues. 

This is made clear when reviewing the regulated property searches, however a HomeBuyer Report will be able to identify suspicions about whether this is an ongoing issue specifically for your property located in the locale.
Berrylands railway station is 10 miles 78 south-west of London Waterloo and is situated between New Malden and Surbiton. This is identified in the searches and should perhaps be in mind when purchasing a property in the area as it gives commuters a link to London Waterloo. 

 A Crossrail 2 line is also in development which should be noted, allowing even further links to areas for this borough of Kingston. It would be worth looking into if your property is located very close to the planned construction area regarding disruption to the enjoyment of your dwelling, however the other side of it is that eventually you will enjoy better public transport links and you can normally expect an uplift in your property value as a result.
Properties in the Berrylands area have generally been constructed since the 1930s. Most are of standard construction and not of great scale and, if you're looking to buy one, a RICS HomeBuyer Report should provide highly important information about any defects your property might have. 

Should your property be of larger scale or is considerably older or is not of standard construction, it is better suited to the RICS Building Survey as its scope of work is better suited to these types of property.

LondonGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Berrylands and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you buy a home with a mortgage your Mortgage Lender requires you to get a mortgage valuation to assess how much your property is actually worth. You have to pay for this survey and often you may think this is also a structural assessment to identify defects.

Sadly the mortgage valuation is just for the mortgage lender which means you need to get your own independent survey of the property that you'd like to buy in Berrylands to make sure there aren't any defects.

There is some confusion as the mortgage valuation is often referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Berrylands that you arrange your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property.

The two types of HomeBuyers Survey to choose from are the HomeBuyers Report or the Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. The costs of underpinning a property due to subsidence run into the £10,000s so it is important to get a survey to check for this type of defect. Buy your HomeBuyers Survey - call 0207 112 5388.
