HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Belvedere and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Belvedere property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Belvedere property's state of repair and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when purchasing a house in the region a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. domestic rubbish. Of course nobody wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns might include chemicals like dioxins. Health problems for example birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Belvedere will notice structural issues resulting from the site. Your conveyancer will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological database in addition to Bexley Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Belvedere property built in the mid 70s, but it has clay foundations. Does a Home Survey discuss soil composition the report?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding, with subsidence being a common example. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a building, such as minor wall cracks in the living room. Steps like monitoring the moisture content of the soil around the foundations, and taking steps to keep the level reasonably stable can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Belvedere surveyor investigate flood damage?

It is estimated that over two million properties are exposed to flooding, and owning a Belvedere house in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. correctly installed window and door frames. The surveyor may ask the agent if the house in Belvedere has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

According to the Environment Agency, no recent flood warnings were found for Belvedere.
