HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in East Dulwich and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the East Dulwich property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap, however it does give comprehensive details of the East Dulwich property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be insects at the East Dulwich house we're buying, but we are not certain. Is a Property Survey advisable?

Homes will often be free of major pests. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include destruction of tainted materials. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
