HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Cubitt Town and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Cubitt Town property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Cubitt Town property's general condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Sussex bond brick on this converted apartment is in poor condition. What are the possible consequences?

Brick Cubitt Town residences will be affected by both minor and serious issues, including crypto-florescence and spalling. Your house surveyor will mention these. One frequently reported defect is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. SJL Bricklayers at 27 Freshwater Rd, London, SW17 9TH on 020 8767 4158.

For home purchasers in Cubitt Town seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like English garden wall bond is often a mix of Flemish and Monk bonds.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I would be advised to check on when intending to buy a converted house in Cubitt Town in a conservation area?

There are thousands of conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by local authorities. Cubitt Town surveyors need to possess relevant knowledge of local area issues and any connection may have with the building and its value. The price of property will likely be enhanced owing to them being preserved. However many have fallen into disrepair for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Property surveyors will advise if the planned purchase looks to be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are raised by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unapproved adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may also be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by your legal representative.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Cubitt Town RICS surveyor look for water damage, or if neighbour's houses have been affected?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a property will be secure against water damage caused by flooding. Both home buyers and home owners in areas at risk of flooding are right to be worried. It is strongly recommended that proper precautions are taken, before flood damage occurs. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, advise appropriate repairs.Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the home surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property in Cubitt Town is at risk.
