HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Lewisham and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Lewisham property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Lewisham property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a Lewisham property constructed Wooton stone. Which major matters should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Ham Hill Middle Bed Limestone to Peakmoor Sandstone. Defects affecting stone-built buildings can vary, weathered stone being relatively common. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Repair advice often includes repointing mortar with a suitable material.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

To source a specific stone material, get in touch with a local mason or walling contractor. For example, Wards Antique Fireplaces, 417 Hither Green La, London, SE13 6TR (Phone: 020 8697 6003) may be able to assist.

Conservation area

Will there be any issues we need to look into if planning to buy a converted house in Lewisham in Deptford High Street conservation area ?

Deptford High Street is in a conservation area and has been classified as very bad by English Heritage, with medium vulnerability and improving. For more information visit their website. There are many thousands of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by the local authority. Deptford High Street is handled by London Borough of Lewisham Council at Town Hall, Catford, London, SE6 4RU who can be contacted on. Lewisham surveyors need to have local knowledge of local issues and the connection may have with the home. Property Prices are typically greater which is down to the areas being largely unspoilt

Surveyors can be expected to tell you if the home looks like it may be is designated and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are carried out by your solicitor. Unconsented modifications to the property may be advised but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the house we intend to move into We noticed that there is an old fuse board , does a surveyor write anything on the electrical system?

When preparing a Home Survey in Lewisham the surveyor will typically comment on the state of the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a hazardous state of repair. This should include a general inspection of the accessible sections of the wiring or fusebox on top of potential areas for concern such as examining the nature of the electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or checking the condition of a sample of switch gear. A check for the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the survey.

The IEE advocate that a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) should be carried out every ten years (or every 5 if letting).
