HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Deptford and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Deptford property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Deptford property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Chimney stacks

For the Deptford HomeBuyer Report can you give examples of an amber light rating defects affecting 'E1 - Chimney stacks' ?

For a Deptford house, one example could be a chimney cap which is obstructed, loose or missing (or even an incorrect type for the flue). They are visually inspected from the ground as necessary. An 'amber' condition rating of 2 implies that some repair work is needed to arrest further decay. In contrast to more serious, 'red' rated, defects, these issues do not require immediate attention. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed

to be user-friendly. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate to what extent each defect requires attention.

Damaged Render

What will your RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco Victorian home in Deptford which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact dense render. Normally stucco is layered over brick hardens to a smooth flat finish. The coating is very attractive and is often found on Regency properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors can focus on issues for example, damp trapped beneath paint (assuming painted)

Another example of problems associated with stucco might be when moisture under windows that results in detachment. Re-applying problems can be dear as craftsmen are getting more difficult to find.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Can we expect the Home Survey to mention this, and what defects will be reported on?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Deptford house will have an impact. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including uneven soil compaction. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly, such as separation of the skirting board from the floor. There is a real benefit in booking a Deptford surveyor to carry out your HomeBuyer Report, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
