HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Thamesmead and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Thamesmead property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Thamesmead property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to get a full structural survey when acquiring a neglected sixties home in Thamesmead over a HomeBuyer Report?

They are often called the Structural Survey by many, this survey is no longer offered and has been given a new title by RICS and the right name is now the Building Survey. If buying an altered Thamesmead home e.g. an extended house - it is now the most appropriate RICS survey. Subsequent to a thorough survey of any accessible parts of the house a written report (digital and written copy) will be sent to the buyer specifying any crucial professional advice about the state of repair of the building. There are certain limitations with any survey insofar as a local surveyor is not in a position to (unless owners consent provided) open up the fabric of the of the Thamesmead property such as removing roof space contents.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Thamesmead chartered surveyor check for flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected nearby homes?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Thamesmead house is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and the value of a house in an at-risk area may be impacted. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The home surveyor will usually recommend that the buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

The Environment Agency have updated the status for the River Thames including areas in the boroughs of Bexley and Greenwich, near Thamesmead, to 'No warnings' at 19:35 on 5/12/08.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the period property I am hoping to move into, it looked like there is an unsafe electrical system - does a the surveyor write anything on the electrics?

When preparing a Home Survey in Thamesmead the RICS surveyor will remark on the state of the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory condition. A Home surveyor will also give detail on things like ascertaining the condition of fitted appliances, for example water heaters or checking the condition of any visible wiring. Looking at any evidence of the most recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey.
