HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Keston property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer comprehensive details of the Keston property's condition as well as including advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a maisonette next to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites take many forms for example: domestic waste material. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane .

Keston RICS surveyors will examine structural problems connected with the site. Your lawyer will commission conveyancing searches of the Landmark databases as well as Bromley Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will your Property Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) regency home in Keston.

Stucco is in fact just a specific type of solid render. Usually stucco is applied to brick that dries to a smooth stone like surface. The coating is highly grand in appearance and is was often applied to Regency homes. It is very similar to plaster. Stucco is often problematic and Keston Homebuyer Reports can focus on any number of problems such as when it is exposed to driving rain which gets saturated and thus prone to frost damage

Another example of problems associated with stucco may result from the burden of heavy load above such as cracking under the roof joists. Remedying problems can be costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a barn conversion. Will the property's age be a problem?

Many buyers in Keston hope to own property with real personality. Use of traditional methods, however, can sometimes be an issue. Structures showcasing traditional methods can be costly to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Construction materials, such as matching stone or wood, , which could mean long-term upkeep.If the property you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact your surveyor for further advice.
