HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in South Kensington and which is the cheapest?

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

If the South Kensington property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the South Kensington property's condition as well as advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Are wet conditions an issue in South Kensington?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet wet weather and the effect it can have on houses are usually overlooked. If you have only seen the house you are buying on a sunny day, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that downspouts are worth a closer look include rotten roofing elements. Blocked rainwater goods can result in fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

In most cases, issues with rainwater goods are usually easy to remedy.However, the damage caused, where not unblocked on a regular basis, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof caused problems in the old property, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Which issues relating to the loft will be reported on?

Local property in otherwise fine condition can often hide roofing woes. From trusses to collar ties, every part of the roof must be reviewed. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in South Kensington, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the property surveyors will look for a range of signs, including amateur repairs.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like repairing a bowing truss, 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. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a local contractor a quote for any suggested work.
