Home Buyers Survey in Streatham

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Streatham and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Streatham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Streatham property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Flemish bond walls on this Tudor property has deteriorated. What are the possible consequences? Does the age of the property matter?

Streatham brick-walled homes can be subject to considerable issues, such as spalling. An issue of particular concern is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. R B Brickwork should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 24 Crichton Av, Wallington, SM6 8HL or 07852 349933.

Streatham home purchasers may need to consider that a number of styles have been used for centuries, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor check out the condition of the gas heaters?

Your RICS surveyor will locate and visually look at any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the location of the meter for example, as well as gas related fittings for example - chimney linings. However, the Streatham local surveyor won't remove the fittings and won't run any tests of any kind on the gas system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially unsafe and if there are any worries about gas or if you smell gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Regulations require landlords must to carry out appliance and installation inspections yearly and punishments for failure to comply are harsh .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there may be a danger of white asbestos Fuse box affecting the maisonette. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly silicate material. Some types may be in building materials including boards around radiators.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in Artex for example.

All forms including Chrysotile are deadly and might lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to remove it and professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos during the survey. Surveyors will mention possible asbestos during the Streatham survey and will advise accordingly.
