Home Buyers Survey in Lambeth

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Lambeth and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Lambeth property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Lambeth property's condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Lambeth include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost as part of the report. To ascertain the market value the valuer will take into account in depth understanding of the Lambeth market and other factors about the property e.g. square metres Your Lambeth surveyor will also consider construction methods and make certain other assumptions e.g. no contamination in or from ground.

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. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there is an absence of any costly legal problems such as access to the property over estate roadways. These will be investigated by your solicitor.

Additional local area conjectures, such as stairway access to a maisonette or connection to sewers, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like nearby pubs, which will also be factored in.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Lambeth. Is there any Flemish Diagonal bond maintenance advice we should be aware of??

Brick-constructed residences in Lambeth demonstrate several benefits, but they can also be subject to diverse problems, ranging from crumbling mortar to inadequate damp-proofing. For instance, patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface and should be taken very seriously. Contact several local builders for quotes, including P & B of 4 Tawell Mews, Tiptree, Colchester, CO5 0QU on 01621 816587.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include English garden wall bond is often a mix of Flemish and Monk bonds. .

The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there might be asbestos fireplace affecting the building. Should we be worried?

Questions relating to asbestos are understandable. Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material. Some types are found in the building materials e.g. home appliances.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in cooker insulation. It is mainly found in the US. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact inhaling a one fibre is not deadly.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to remove it and professional advice should be sought immediately. Removing it may be dear but must be carried out by experts. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos during the survey. They will mention possible asbestos risks and will offer advice.
