HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Southwark and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Southwark property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you select a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Southwark property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are buying in Southwark. What will we need to investigate when buying a building constructed in 1760? What consequences will the residence's slate roof have on maintenance?

The age of a structure can often be problematic. Homes built with traditional methods can be a drain to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Construction materials, such as matching tiles, may also need to be sourced. If you plan to make alterations to a period residence, discuss options with your building surveyor for more information.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Southwark, what advice would a Southwark surveyor give for properties with brick chimney?

Brick-constructed property demonstrate several benefits. However, they can also show signs of distinct issues, including crypto-florescence and badly applied render. Where relevant, these will be discussed in the survey report, with advice on the consequences were they to go untreated.

A defect often found is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. Harley Construction ltd should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at Great Russell Head Farm/Canvey Road, Canvey Island, SS8 0QR or 07854 422995.

Brick-build property are used in properties built throughout the ages, leading to a great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rainfall an issue in Southwark? And could it affect the property value?

Both in Southwark, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact rain can have on property in Southwark is often overlooked. One indication that drainage systems are worth a closer look is spalling masonry. This could then result in collapsed drains or overflowing septic tank.

Whether buying in Southwark or elsewhere, difficult drainage systems do not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve.However, the damage caused, where untreated or poorly maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.
