HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Avery Hill and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Avery Hill property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, you should you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Avery Hill property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there could be brown asbestos Artex affecting the home. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials for example patching compounds. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in vinyl flooring.

All forms are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken never to disturb asbestos and expert advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos during a Avery Hill building survey. Your Avery Hill surveyor should note the risk of asbestos during the Avery Hill survey and will offer advice.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls we need to verify if buying a converted house in Avery Hill inside a conservation area?

There are thousands official conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Avery Hill are required by RICS to have local knowledge of relevant local factors and any effect they have with the building. Property Prices are typically inflated owing to them being unspoilt. However many conservation areas are falling into a poor state for example - out of keeping extensions

Surveyors can be expected to advise you whether the property is possibly so designated and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are conducted by your solicitor. Unapproved adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval should be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for the solicitor. Tummings Solicitors are a local firm situated at 9 Christopher Close, Bexley, London, DA15 8PU and may be prepared to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 0208 850 4465

Roof defects identified during a survey

One of the neighbours said that the had been a problem with a leak, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What will our Avery Hill building surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

This often causes anxiety for Avery Hill home buyers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Houses across Avery Hill can often hide roof maintenance problems. From collar ties to dormers, the roof structure as a whole should be reported on. Your Avery Hill surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

High quotes for roofing jobs (such as insulating the attic) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A contractor in Avery Hill with professional accreditation should be able to assist with a quote.
