About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Denmark Hill

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Denmark Hill and which is cheaper?

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

If the Denmark Hill property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Denmark Hill property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when purchasing a building close to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. industrial refuse. Of course nobody wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks might include tars and other hazardous materials. Health concerns like congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Denmark Hill will find structural defects linked to the landfill. Your legal representative will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases as well as Lambeth Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

On a Denmark Hill HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E8' cover?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give home buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. As buyers in Denmark Hill are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of to what extent each defect requires attention. For a Denmark Hill property, one issue is warped wood sidings. They are visually inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate Importantly, the possible use of asbestos components will be investigated.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as professional fees e.g legal fees) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and a rebuilding cost. To properly appraise the correct valuation your RICS valuer will relate to local Denmark Hill market factors and other considerations relating to the property e.g. square metres.

Surveyors also evaluate materials used and use key assumptions e.g. there are no hazardous materials. Surveyors don't factor in certain things like furnishings, for example curtains. It will be assumed that there are no significant legal issues like the property being sold with vacant possession. Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancer.

Additional local area assumptions, like services, are made in addition to any environmental concerns like Denmark Hill planning proposals (e.g flight path), which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
