Home Buyers Survey in Plumstead

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Plumstead and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Plumstead property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you book a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Plumstead property's general condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we should check on when planning to buy a converted flat in Plumstead near a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local authority. Plumstead surveyors are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of local area issues and any bearing they have on the property and its value. Prices will probably be more than prices outside the area owing to conservation areas retaining original features. However a large number are falling into a state of neglect e.g. the removal front garden walls

RICS surveyors are trained to tell you whether the building looks to be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Plumstead Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are conducted as part of the legal process. Unapproved modifications to the building should be noted, however these should be concern for your legal representative. Anaysse-Jacobs Solicitors are a local firm situated at First Floor Offices, Greenwich, London, SE18 6HZ and may be happy to give you some pointers. Tel: 020 8316 5000

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented that there is a risk of asbestos flooring materials in existence at the apartment. What are the issues with asbestos and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly silicate material. Some types may be in building materials for example sealant.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good tensile strength properties, it may be found in roof tiles. Technically all forms are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to remove the asbestos and professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos during a Plumstead building survey. However, surveyors will mention the risk of asbestos during the survey and should inform you of the options.
