Motspur Park is a suburb in south-west London, located just south-east of New Malden. The railway station here has six trains an hour to London Waterloo making it an ideal choice for commuters, who can collect their shopping from the small parade of shops right next to the station. The athletics stadium at Motspur Park achieved fame when the world mile record was set there in 1938 and famously featured in the film Chariots of Fire in 1981, it was sold to Fulham Football Club as their training ground in 1999.
If you are considering buying a property in Motspur Park you may have been advised by your surveyor or lender to obtain a damp or timber survey, or both. A potential problem may have been found such as damp walls, springy floor or evidence of wood boring insects (woodworm). The first thing you should do is to check whether any previous damp or timber treatment carried out and, if so, is there a current, valid guarantee to cover what was done? It is important to ensure that the property is free from any damp and timber defects and, remember, that even if such defects were to be found it may be possible to negotiate a reduction to cover the costs.
