HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Anerley and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Anerley property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Anerley property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for site clearance) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report will contain an independent valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost as standard. In order to determine an accurate value estimate your chartered surveyor will pair awareness of the Anerley property market and other considerations relating to the property for instance: state of repair The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will use key assumptions e.g. the property isn't on a land fill site. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings.

Additional local Anerley area assumptions like the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant local environmental concerns like local Anerley industrial considerations, also being considered.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Anerley. Is there any Scottish bond advice we should be aware of?? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick Anerley property will be affected by considerable issues. This could be anything from vertical cracking to lack of a damp proof course. Any such issues ought to be reported on, with solutions or likely results if they are not resolved. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. For more information, contact a local builder, G J M Building Services of 47 Marmion Close, London, E4 8EN on 020 8531 1872.

A number of styles of brick building are used in properties built throughout the ages. For example, Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a 1971-built home in Anerley and saw that there is a 29mm crack above the windows in the living room. Is this a urgent risk, and what subsidence-related defects will my home survey look into?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a house and its foundations. Subsidence is sometimes referred to as settlement, but this is incorrect. Settlement will occur in newly constructed houses, and is rarely a cause for concern. The structure's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, which will cease after a matter of months. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed water accumulates in soil. This causes the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

Non-structural cracks not caused by subsidence can be filled and repainted. In extreme weather, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Unfortunately, even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can in rare cases take months. A Anerley surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.
