HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Lambeth and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Lambeth property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Lambeth property's condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Lambeth. Is there any Flemish Diagonal bond maintenance advice we should be aware of??

Brick-constructed residences in Lambeth demonstrate several benefits, but they can also be subject to diverse problems, ranging from crumbling mortar to inadequate damp-proofing. For instance, patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface and should be taken very seriously. Contact several local builders for quotes, including P & B of 4 Tawell Mews, Tiptree, Colchester, CO5 0QU on 01621 816587.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include English garden wall bond is often a mix of Flemish and Monk bonds. .

The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

House Prices

We have found a flat in SE11 - Lambeth for £309, 057. What considerations will a RICS surveyor consider when valuing house prices in Lambeth ?

There are a great number of factors that can impact on property values e.g. the total square meterage of the home or whether the property is sold under probate. You can try to analyse prices achieved in the area for similar flats. The mean flat price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £280, 057, which is £29, 000 less than the asking price and the flat/house average was £408, 229. Prichard House, 214A, Flat 3, Kennington Road, London, Lambeth, Greater London, SE11 6AU a leasehold flat recently sold for £277, 000 .

In order for you to get an accurate property valued is to get a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report as part of the service.

A local surveyor will always actually visit the house in addition to factoring in the myriad of area influences that might affect the value of property.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are planning to purchase a maisonette in Lambeth, does the home surveyor check any flood damage, or if neighbouring property have been affected?

Heavy rain, overflowing waterways, tidal activity and poor drainage could all cause major flooding, and the value of a home in an at-risk area may be impacted. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments. Flood water can enter a property in Lambeth through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. An awareness of characteristics of the Lambeth area likely to affect the property in Lambeth also enables the chartered surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a property survey if the chartered surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property in Lambeth is at risk.
