HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Crofton Park and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Crofton Park property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Crofton Park property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Crofton Park Surveyor look out for on a smooth stucco coated regency home in Crofton Park that I wish to buy.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is in fact smooth type of render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth and even finish. The effect is highly appealing and is found on Victorian and Georgian properties. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Crofton Park frequently show potentially expensive to remedy problems such as damp trapped under paint (assuming painted).

Another example of problems associated with stucco could be when moisture enters under flashings which causes detachment. Fixing Stucco problems can be expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our seller said that pooling water on the roof had been a concern - What does the RICS surveyor investigate during the survey?

This often causes anxiety for Crofton Park buyers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Many properties could unfortunately be experiencing difficulties with the roof, for example, wet rot. From collar beams to eaves, the whole roof will be considered. Your RICS surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Upkeep can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A roofing contractor with positive reviews can provide a quote.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about if buying a house in the region a landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including inert waste. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks might include complex organic chemicals .

Surveyors will examine any structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as Lewisham Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
