HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Sundridge Park and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Sundridge Park property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension on the property, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Sundridge Park property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 17th Century property. What effect will the property's construction have on maintenance?

For houses in Sundridge Park built before the 20th Century, age can be problematic. Sundridge Park property built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. .

Construction materials, such as period brick or roof tiles, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of , for example, a Grade II listed house. This may mean expensive ongoing repairs. If the building you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact your surveyor for more information.

Building Surveys on houses

Should we do the full structural survey if purchasing a substantially modified regency bungalow near Sundridge Park as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Frequently described as a Full Structural Survey by many agents and buyers, it is now defunct and has actually been renamed by RICS and the proper name is now the RICS Building Survey. Choose a Building Survey if you are contemplating the property referred to. The HomeBuyer Report is enough for a 60 year old or less unmodified house assembled from conventional construction materials and methods. Bear in mind that several survey no go areas exist with any survey because a chartered surveyor cannot force or open up the structure of the Sundridge Park house for example, or inspect where doing so could cause damage to the house.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Sundridge Park, and will the HomeBuyer Report check water damage, or whether flooding has affected the garden?

Overflowing rivers, rain and insufficient drainage could all cause major floods. Both property buyers and home owners in areas at risk of flooding are right to be worried. It is strongly recommended that action is taken, before flood damage occurs.

Flood water can enter a residential property through several routes, including door frames.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. appropriate drainage. The house surveyor will usually recommend that the property buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.
