HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in New Cross and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the New Cross property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works on the New Cross property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer comprehensive details of the New Cross property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a New Cross property will contain a professional valuation and a rebuilding cost. To ascertain the market value the surveyor will relate to local New Cross market factors and other things relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location.. Surveyors also reflect on construction type and will use other assumptions like there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected. Surveyors don't factor in certain things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further New Cross conjectures, like services, are made in addition to any environmental issues like the property being underneath a flight path, also being considered.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Will the New Cross Home Buyers Survey consider this?

Factors from rising damp to snow can cause major repair bills for a property-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of a number of issues, with sub-soil shrinkage and soil swelling being relatively common. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. Signs like sticking window frames or widening cracks can be early indications of very serious structural issues.

Taking precautions, such as after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a property in New Cross, does the property surveyor investigate any flooding damage?

Flooding in New Cross can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and the value of a house in New Cross in an at-risk area may be impacted. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the house in New Cross in question is in danger, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

The Environment Agency state that no recent warnings have been for New Cross.
