About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Deptford

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Deptford and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Deptford property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Deptford property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Deptford, and can a Deptford HomeBuyer Report consider flood damage?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: The Telegraph), and the value of a home in Deptford in an at-risk area may be impacted.

Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the home in Deptford in question is in danger. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, advise appropriate repairs.Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. The chartered surveyor will usually recommend that the house buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Near Deptford, the River Thames riverside from the Thames Barrier to Putney Bridge status was recently updated to 'No warnings' by the Environment Agency.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect could wet conditions have on a Deptford home? Where there are issues, what should we do?

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that the impact rainfall can have on Deptford property is usually overlooked. If you have only seen the home in dry weather, issues may have been hidden. Signs that rainwater goods are under performing include damp stains around drainage. This could then result in a damp or flooded cellar.

Whether buying in Deptford or elsewhere, difficult rainwater goods does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive, unless they are not cleared out regularly. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a renovated farmhouse. Will the age of the property be a concern?

Some buyers in Deptford would be interested in owning a unique or characterful property. Vernacular architecture, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Property featuring traditional methods can be expensive to repair. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Construction materials, such as period brick or roof tiles, may also need to be sourced. This can result in longer-term maintenance obligations. If you have doubts, speak to your building surveyor for further advice.
