HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Walworth and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Walworth property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Walworth property's state of repair along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should we get a full structural survey when looking into a defective regency property in Walworth instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Regularly referred to as the Structural Survey by many, this survey is now defunct and has actually been renamed by RICS(Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the proper name is now the Building Survey. If purchasing a modified Walworth property like an unloved house - it is now the most suitable choice of home survey. A Building Survey outlines crucial information concerning the buildings state of repair along with any needs for future maintenance, following a thorough inspection of any accessible parts.

There are several limitations with any residential survey as a RICS surveyor is not in a position to force

or open up the fabric of the Walworth house, an example being lifting up floor coverings. Outside buildings will typically be assessed as part of the survey.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Diagonal bond walls on this Tudor house needs work - what should we do?

Brick-built structures feature several advantages, but they will also be subject to a number of issues, such as weathering. An especially severe issue is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. For more information, contact a local builder, D W A Builders of 204 Hall La, London, E4 8EY on 020 8523 9550.

For example, common bond or shiner bond are both used in Walworth structures.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the mid-century home I am planning to acquire, the agent said that there is old wiring. Will a Homebuyer Report in Walworth report on the general state of the electrical system?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Walworth a RICS surveyor will typically make a note on the electrical system if it looks like the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair. Your surveyor is expected to possible problems relating to things like verifying the state of fixed appliances like storage radiators or the whereabouts of the fuse board . Inspecting the documentation from the most recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey in Walworth.
