About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Camberwell

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Camberwell and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Camberwell property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works on the property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Camberwell property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a house in Camberwell and noticed wall cracks in the sitting room, could this be evidence of subsidence? How could this affect the property, and what subsidence-related defects will my home survey investigate?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a structure, but some degree of movement will always occur. New properties, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the property.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with an above-average concentration of gravel, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Organic material such as peat is usually stable if kept moist by the water level, but if the soil dries, this organic matter will rot. This causes the subsoil to be compacted as its volume is reduced, by the sheer weight and pressure of the building above.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home, with no underpinning required. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
