HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Belgravia and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Belgravia property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give you comprehensive details of the Belgravia property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We're intending to purchase in Belgravia. Is there a flood risk, and will the Belgravia surveyor check signs of flooding?

Overflowing rivers, rain and tides can cause water damage caused by flooding, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. The Environment Agency maintain a flood alert service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a property through several routes, including incorrectly fitted window frames. The Building Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Also included on Environment Agency's flood alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

The alert level for the River Thames including areas in the boroughs of Tower Hamlets, the City of London, the City of Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea, near to Belgravia of 'No warnings', was recently set by the Environment Agency on 5/12/08.

Can Beer stone-built properties be hard to maintain. Which major issues should we consider?

The cost of upkeep for stone-built homes in Belgravia can be higher than for more standard. Defects affecting stone-built homes in Belgravia can vary, erosion being relatively common. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to homes in Belgravia, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decoration.
