HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Camberwell property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works on the property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Camberwell property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are buying a property. What impact will the property's unusual construction have on regular maintenance?

Many buyers in Camberwell would be interested in owning a old, characterful home one day. A property's age, however, can be problematic, and Camberwell homes built with traditional methods can be costly to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work. If the residence you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact the building surveyor for more detail.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the house we are intending to lease, the agent said that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; does the surveyor write anything on electrical system condition?

When preparing a Building Survey in Camberwell your RICS surveyor should mention the state of the electrics if it appears that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory condition. This will include a general examination of the accessible sections of the wiring as well as areas like the location of the meter and fuse board or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear.

Confirming the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the survey. Looking at any documents from any recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey.

The IEE advise that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be completed every ten years (5 if letting out).

Damaged Render

What will your RICS Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco house in Camberwell that I wish to buy.

Stucco is just a smooth and flat solid render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The finish is highly appealing and is was often applied to Georgian homes. Stucco is often problematic and Camberwell surveyors frequently detail any number of problems for example, lateral hairline cracking that describes the mortar joints underneath.

Another example of problems associated with stucco can possibly result be when water enters beneath flashings which causes the render detaching. Re-coating Stucco problems can be costly as the skills are getting rarer.
