About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Herne Hill

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Herne Hill and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Herne Hill property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Herne Hill property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco house in Herne Hill which we wish to buy.

Stucco is actually just smooth type of render. Normally stucco render is applied to underlying red brick hardens to form a very smooth surface. It is highly beautiful and was common on some Victorian and Regency homes for example. it can be problematic and Herne Hill Home Buyers Suveys can reveal defects for instance lateral pattern like cracking that follows the underlying mortar joints. Other issues can possibly result be when moisture below DPCs that causes the render detaching. Re-applying problems with stucco may be costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming harder to find.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a property in the region a refuse tip

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. non-hazardous waste disposal. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries might include complex organic chemicals. Health concerns for example spina bifida have been associated with landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Herne Hill will notice structural problems linked to the landfill. Your legal representative will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets as well as Lambeth Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a danger of an asbestos fireplace at the house. What is asbestos and is it dangerous?

Asbestos is a noxious substance. Some types may be in building materials e.g. asbestos packing in stud walls. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good fire retarding properties, it may be found in central heating flues. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to move the asbestos and expert advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will note potential asbestos and will advise accordingly.
