HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Brompton and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Brompton property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Brompton property's state of repair in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I should check out when intending to buy a period property in Brompton near a conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors must possess relevant knowledge of relevant local issues and the bearing they have on the home and its value. Prices will likely be inflated due to conservation areas being in good order.

Surveyors are trained to tell you if the house might be within a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Brompton Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are raised during the conveyancing process. Out of keeping modifications to the property may be reported in the Brompton survey but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer. Svedberg Law are based in 125 Sloane Street, Kensington and Chelsea, London, SW1X 9AU might be prepared to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 0207 368 7000

Stone block wall damage

Will a property in Brompton with stone walls create upkeep problems? What problems must we watch out for?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Plumpton Red Lazonby Sandstone to Portland Fancy Beach Limestone. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. EDF Energy, 40 Grosvenor Place, Victoria, London, SW1X 7EN, quarrying Gypsum, for details. Call 02072 429050 for more information.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have heard that Brompton houses built on clay soil can experience problems. Can my Home Survey investigate this?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a home's foundations can create difficulties. Specific problems include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. In Brompton's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. Signs like a sticking door in the garage or small cracks in the garage ceiling can be early indications of very serious structural issues. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Brompton, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home.
