Home Buyers Survey in Southwark

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Southwark and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Southwark property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you select a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Southwark property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Southwark which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is actually just a form of render. Commonly stucco render is applied to brick that sets to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. It is highly appealing and is found on Regency buildings. It is similar to plaster or mortar. It can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to help stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Southwark Building Surveys can focus on any number of problems e.g. trapped moisture leading to problems with damp needing repair. Other potential problems might include when the application is taken down to ground level bypassing the DPC. Fixing problems may be difficult as the skills are getting rarer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Southwark surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a retaining wall)

Southwark Homebuyer Reports a surveyor valuation and a rebuilding cost. To estimate the market value your independent surveyor will take into account local Southwark market factors and other things relating to the property e.g. square metres The surveyor will also consider construction type and will make certain other assumptions e.g. no significant problems.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local Southwark area conjectures, such as use of parking or water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to local environmental issues like local mining issues, which will also be factored in.
