HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in New Addington and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the New Addington property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the New Addington property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get a New Addington Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local council.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a maisonette in New Addington, does the house surveyor check water damage, or if other houses on the street have been affected?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m properties are at risk of flood damage, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for properties in flood-risk areas. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a home, such as via landscaping or paved areas sloping towards the property. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The building surveyor will usually recommend that the buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there may be a danger of asbestos insulation situated in the flat. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous mineral of several naturally occurring materials. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials for example gutters.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic sound absorption properties, it may be found in eaves.

All forms are ultimately hazardous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will report on suspected asbestos risks and should recommend professional testing.
