HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Dulwich property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Dulwich property's condition and it includes advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Dulwich. Can a RICS surveyor search for possible flooding?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of home owners in Dulwich and across the country. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a home survey will inform your decision.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure.

Flood water can enter a home in Dulwich through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The home survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a home survey if the surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the home in Dulwich is at risk.

According to the Environment Agency, no flood alerts were found for Dulwich.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance has created issues for us in the past. What advice would the surveyor in Dulwich give in their report?

This is a common concern for home buyers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Many properties may be exposed to issues with the roof. From collar beams to sheeting, the roof structure as a whole will be taken into account, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A roofing specialist with positive reviews can provide a quote.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect could rain have on our new property, and does our HomeBuyer Report mention it? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the impact heavy rain can have on properties is rarely considered properly.

Signs that drainage systems are a cause for concern include rusted iron elements. Blocked rainwater goods can result in overflowing or blocked sewage.

In most cases, this is generally easy to fix. However, if the drains are not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
