HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Bermondsey and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Bermondsey property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Bermondsey property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the thirties house we are interested to purchase it appeared that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses; will a Homebuyer Report in Bermondsey go into detail on electrical defects?

During a Homebuyer Report in Bermondsey a surveyor should report on the overall electrical system if it is clear that the electrics are in a poor condition. A Surveyor should also report back on issues like verifying the external installations like out houses with a power supply or any external power sockets. .

Examining the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician should be part of the survey. Inspecting the documentation from the most recent PIR handled by an electrician will be part of the survey.

The IEE advocate that a Periodic Inspection Report need be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw cracks down the gable wall when we last viewed the house. What subsidence-related defects will my HomeBuyer Report inspect?

Movement of the foundations of a structure is called subsidence. However, subsidence should be distinguished from the normal settlement of a home. Less common than subsidence, but which can be as damaging to a home, heave occurs when the ground is forced up rather than down.

Subsidence is the result of a number of common issues. One such issue is that soil on ground which slopes downward is not as stable as that flat ground. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer could then become unsteady and begin to slide downward. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. A high water table will ensure that organic materials in the soil, such as peat, do not decompose but if the soil dries out, this organic matter will decompose. This causes the subsoil to be compacted as its volume is reduced, by the sheer weight and pressure of the building above.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.

House Prices

There is a property in SE1 in Bermondsey on for £457, 628. What will the qualified RICS surveyor evaluate when calculating house prices in Bermondsey on a survey ?

There are a great number of factors which could have a bearing on property values for example the existence of any restrictions over use of the property or the quality of the bathroom and fittings. As an indicator, one can try to compare with house prices achieved in the area for similar properties.

The means house prices paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £429, 928, which is £27, 700 less than the amount you are paying and the flat/house average was £364, 062. 76, Rolls Road, London, Southwark, Greater London, SE1 5DU a detached house sold for £435, 000 .

An impartial way for home buyers to get a formal home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service.
