HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in East Dulwich and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the East Dulwich property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap, however it does give comprehensive details of the East Dulwich property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a retaining wall)

Homebuyer Reports include an impartial valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To ascertain the market value the surveyor will call upon knowledge of East Dulwich and other things about the property for instance: desirability of the location. Your East Dulwich surveyor will also consider construction type and use other assumptions like the ground is not land filled. Surveyors don't factor in certain things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further area assumptions, like connection to sewers, are made in addition to East Dulwich environmental problems like busy roads, also being considered.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a home and the vendor has made us aware that it has been partially constructed with Clipsham stone. Are there specific matters to bear in mind?

From Broadway Dark Cream Limestone to Wroxton Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Issues including delamination affect many stone-walled homes. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in East Dulwich are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. There are two kinds of lime-based mortar, hydraulic and non-hydraulic. It essential that the type of mortar be identified before any work be attempted. Maintenance tips include repointing mortar with a suitable material.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rainfall an issue in East Dulwich? And could it affect the property value?

Regular rainfall is common in East Dulwich and across the country, but the impact wet weather can have on properties is usually overlooked by house purchasers. Signs that gutters are blocked include "gushing" gutters.

The good news is that drainage problems are generally easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. Where this is untreated or poorly maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.
