HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Greenhithe property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Greenhithe property's condition along with advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a warehouse conversion in Greenhithe. Will the age of the building be a problem?

Many buyers in Greenhithe would be interested in owning a old, characterful home one day. A building's age, however, can create difficulties for an owner. Buildings built using traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for Greenhithe listed buildings, Traditional building materials may be required. If you plan to make alterations to a period building, discuss options with your surveyor for further advice.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof has created issues for us at our old property, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What aspects of the loft will be looked into for the survey?

Local property that are otherwise ideal can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer damage to the roof. Any part of the roof or loft, such as ridge flashing, ought to be checked, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like re-covering asphalt, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect may heavy rainfall have on our new building in Greenhithe? Will the RICS surveyor in Greenhithe report on this? If there are problems, will they be inconvenient to fix?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on a residence are ignored by house purchasers. For instance, water pooling below gutters suggest that the rainwater goods are at risk. This could then result in damp and mould.

Whether buying in Greenhithe or elsewhere, difficult rainwater goods does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, unless they are disregarded. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
