Top tips for a Tooting Home Buyers Survey


Tooting’s buildings mainly hale from the late Victorian period – there are many Victorian terraced houses around - and then much building also occurred in the 1920s/30s such as you find in the streets around Gassiot Road.

There are, however, rare examples of early Georgian development on Upper Tooting Road, and groups of beautifui Arts and Crafts-style homes on Nightingale Lane.

The areas in the vicinity of the River Wandle, including Park Road and Acre Road, on the western and southern borders of Tooting, are subject to flood warnings.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some buildings in an area around the southern end of Trinity Road up to where Tooting Bec station is and from this junction moving south-west along Tooting High Street, up to St George's Hospital, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
The build-up of moss on tiles on Tooting rooves, whilst not unduly detrimental to the tiles, the moss tends to impede the flow of water off the tiles. The moss should be carefully scraped off the tiles and the valleys cleaned out to avoid the moss and debris building up in them as this could be detrimental to the property. Jet washing should not be used as it tends to remove the colour from the surface of the tiles.

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 RICS Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage.

The survey is non-intrusive. If you are thinking of buying a property in Tooting, it is highly advisable to book one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report,.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

If your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property.

Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp
and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Tooting which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey.

The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Does a RICS surveyor perform asbestos testing?

The Survey is a visual assessment to help identify any potential issues.

The surveyor will inspect the property and if they have any suspicions of subsidence they will recommend that you get an asbestos specialist into the property.

The asbestos specialist will review of all accessible areas of the property to assess for asbestos and provide details of areas asbestos is potentially affecting along with taking samples and confirming if the material is asbestos.

We have asbestos surveyors covering Tooting and they are all qualified to British Occupational Hygiene Society P402 and some to S301 Standards.

All samples are analysed in a UKAS accredited laboratory.

At the end of the process you will know what level of asbestos is present and what it will cost for you or the vendor to remove it.
