About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Peckham

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Peckham and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Peckham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Peckham property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What defects will my Surveyor examine on a stucco coated regency house in Peckham that I wish to buy.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is actually a form of render. Typically it is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The coating is highly grand in appearance and was often found on Victorian houses. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Peckham commonly highlight any number of problems for example, horizontal cracking revealing the underlying mortar joints. Other potential problems may be when water gets in under flashings which causes detachment. Re-covering Stucco problems may be expensive as craftsmen are getting rarer.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled home in Peckham. Are there specific issues to bear in mind? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Maintenance tips include careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

If you are sourcing a particular stone, contact a Peckham firm - Casa Fireplaces of 159 Bellenden Road, London, SE15 4DH could help.
