HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Brixton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Brixton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Brixton property's condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Brixton Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a coast house. What consequences will the timber frame have on repairs?

A property's age can sometimes be an issue. Property built using traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. .

Construction materials, such as period brick or roof tiles, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of Brixton's conservation areas. If you have doubts, speak to your RICS surveyor for further advice.

Substandard guttering

In the HomeBuyer Report what are common Condition rating 3 defects for 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

They are visually inspected. Buyers should be aware that although drainage is reported on in this section, other aspects of the water system are referred to elsewhere possible defects such as blockages in sewer pipes. Downspouts discharging onto the roof is one example. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. As buyers in Brixton are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. 'Red' defects may also need further investigation by a qualified specialist before a full assessment can be made.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What warnings would a Brixton surveyor give for a home with rat-trap bond walls? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-walled buildings in Brixton can be affected by a range of defects. For example, sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat and may require immediate attention.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. R B Brickwork at 24 Crichton Av, Wallington, SM6 8HL on 07852 349933.

E.g. rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.
