About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Streatham Hill

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Streatham Hill and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Streatham Hill property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Streatham Hill property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it to consider downspouts? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Regular rainfall is common in Streatham Hill and across the country, but the effect which rainfall has on your property is ignored. Signs that drainage systems are damaged include spalling on walls around drainage, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. The good news is that this is generally easy to fix if dealt with quickly. If not cleared out regularly, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Building Surveys on houses

Shall I order a full structural survey when considering a shabby period townhouse in Streatham Hill over a HomeBuyer Report?

Now often (incorrectly) called a Full Structural Survey by agents and buyers alike, it is now defunct and and has been reclassified by RICS and the right name is now the Building Survey. When buying an unusual Streatham Hill property, for example a property in poor condition house - the Building Survey is now the most appropriate choice. A Building Survey will provide notable professional advice in relation to the property's construction materials in addition to any defects a thorough visual inspection of the accessible parts.

There are certain restrictions with any residential survey because a RICS surveyor wont be able to (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the Streatham Hill house e.g. moving heavy furniture. Outside buildings should be assessed.
