HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Camberwell and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Camberwell property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works on the property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Camberwell property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any things we need to look out for when buying a converted flat in Camberwell in the vicinity of a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are many thousands official conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by local councils.

A Building Surveyors must have local knowledge of relevant local area factors and the connection may have on the building. The value of homes tends to be higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to the areas being in good order. However many have been neglected and are in a poor state e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Surveyors are expected advise if the home might be is designated and Section I of your Camberwell Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by your conveyancer. Out of keeping modifications that do not have Local Authority approval should be noted in the survey but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer. Meaby and Co are based in 2 Camberwell Church Street, Southwark, London, SE5 8QY might be able to give you some pointers. Tel: 020 7703 5034

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Camberwell. What input does a Camberwell surveyor give?

Brick-constructed structures do benefit from many advantages. However, they can also be affected by a range of defects. An especially severe issue is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. Down & Randall Building Co should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01392 202356 or 96 Chantry Meadow, Exeter, EX2 8FR.

For example, shiner bond or header bond may be used in the construction of structures in Camberwell.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do I need to look into rainwater goods, and does our RICS surveyor mention it?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which heavy rain has on a house is not given enough thought by house purchasers. If you have only seen the house you are buying on a dry day, issues may have been hidden. Signs that rainwater goods are damaged include spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts. If you have suspicions, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

In most cases, issues with rainwater goods are quite easy to resolve for a reasonable cost, unless they are not cleared out regularly. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
