HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Bermondsey and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Bermondsey property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Bermondsey property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are planning to buy a house in Bermondsey, does the building survey investigate flooding?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Independent), and the value of a home in an at-risk area may be impacted. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the home in question is in danger, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the Bermondsey home or on adjacent sites, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

The Environment Agency have updated the status for the River Thames riverside from the Thames Barrier to Putney Bridge, near Bermondsey, to 'No warnings' on 18/12/12.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the thirties house we are interested to purchase it appeared that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses; will a Homebuyer Report in Bermondsey go into detail on electrical defects?

During a Homebuyer Report in Bermondsey a surveyor should report on the overall electrical system if it is clear that the electrics are in a poor condition. A Surveyor should also report back on issues like verifying the external installations like out houses with a power supply or any external power sockets. .

Examining the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician should be part of the survey. Inspecting the documentation from the most recent PIR handled by an electrician will be part of the survey.

The IEE advocate that a Periodic Inspection Report need be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).

Deteriorated timber

On the HomeBuyer Report, what are common Condition Rating 1 defects for joinery and finishes?

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for buyers in Bermondsey deciding whether or not to purchase a Bermondsey home. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1, but regular upkeep may still be required. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. If a residence does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

Problems impacting the roof are checked here. These are inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate Importantly, the possible use of asbestos components will be covered. Delamination of hardboard or plywood is one example.
