HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Charlton and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Charlton property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Charlton property's condition along with advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a property surveyor look for indications of flood damage?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m properties are at risk of floods. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. Flood water can enter a property through several routes, including window frames.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. the use of lime-based plaster on walls. The property surveyor will usually recommend that the house purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

The Environment Agency have updated the status for the River Thames riverside from the Thames Barrier to Putney Bridge, near Charlton, to 'No warnings'.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A next-door neighbour warned us about insects on the street. Do we need a house surveyor?

Pests like ants may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Charlton. An affected property may not always be easy to identify, for example, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Remedies to insect infestation can include use of insecticides and destruction of tainted materials. If you believe ants, or any pest, may be present, request that your Charlton surveyor pay close attention during the survey.
