Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in West Dulwich and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the West Dulwich property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension on the property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the West Dulwich property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we should be conscious of if intending to buy a building in West Dulwich near a conservation area ?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by local councils.

Home Buyers Surveys in West Dulwich are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area factors and any relation may have with the building. Property Prices are typically significantly higher as a result of the areas being largely unspoilt However a large number have been neglected and are in shoddy condition for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

RICS surveyors will note if the home might be is so classified and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Unsympathetic extensions to the building should be advised in your survey, however these should be concern for the solicitor.
