HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Deptford and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Deptford property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Deptford property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the house we are planning to lease We noticed that there could be corrosion of the wiring; will a Deptford Homebuyer Report go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

When performing a Deptford Building Survey a surveyor should mention the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in a dangerous state. A Home surveyor will also focus on potential areas for concern such as verifying the nature of any electrical fittings in shower rooms or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Inspecting any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Deptford.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) advocate a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be completed every 10 years (5 if letting).

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Deptford, and can a Deptford HomeBuyer Report consider flood damage?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: The Telegraph), and the value of a home in Deptford in an at-risk area may be impacted.

Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the home in Deptford in question is in danger. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, advise appropriate repairs.Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. The chartered surveyor will usually recommend that the house buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be loose blue asbestos containing roof tiles at the flat. What is asbestos and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a noxious silicate material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials such as asbestos packing in stud walls. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent fire retarding properties, it may be found in central heating flues. Technically all forms are deadly and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to move the it. Professional advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos as part of the survey. However, surveyors will report on suspected asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.
