HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in New Beckenham and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the New Beckenham property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications on the New Beckenham property, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the New Beckenham property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a New Beckenham House Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a building in New Beckenham - What does the New Beckenham surveyor check when the building is surveyed?

This is frequently addressed by building surveyors. Homes throughout New Beckenham can be blighted by roof maintenance problems, such as missing tiles. From ceiling joists to clay tiles, all aspects of the roof should be reported on, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of New Beckenham, but it is a health and safety necessity. A contractor can provide an estimate.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the thirties house we are intending to buy it appeared that there was no RCD on the fuse board - does a New Beckenham survey advise the general state of the electrical system?

During a New Beckenham Homebuyer Report the home surveyor should usually mention the electrical system if it is clear that the electrics are in a dangerous state.

This should include a visual inspection (without removing any fittings) of open or exposed sections of the wiring or fusebox on top of possible problems relating to things like verifying the condition of the fixed electrical appliances like storage radiators or the state of residual circuit breakers (RCD). Inspecting any documents from any recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will be part of the survey.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the New Beckenham Surveyor look out for on a stucco coated regency home in New Beckenham that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually a sort of flat finish render. Commonly stucco is applied to brick that sets to a smooth flat finish. It is highly beautiful and is/was found on Victorian and Georgian homes. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors sometimes reveal issues for example, moisture trapped beneath paint. Other issues may be when moisture gets in beneath sills which results in large areas of detachment. Remedying problems with stucco may be expensive as the skills are getting harder to find.
