HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the New Eltham property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the New Eltham property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Sussex bond brick on this Edwardian property looks in bad shape. What are the possible consequences? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick converted property in New Eltham will indicate several common problems, from erosion to cracks. For example, extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork and may require immediate attention. Hastie M Ltd at 7 Camp Rd, Weymouth, DT4 9HE should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 07734 961424.

New Eltham home purchasers may need to consider that range of styles and techniques have been used across the country for centuries. As an example, Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks. The apparent simplicity

of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're buying in New Eltham. Is there a flood risk, and will the home surveyor look for signs of flooding, or if the garden have been affected?

The lives of many home owners in New Eltham and across the UK have suffered as a result of flooding damage and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. It is strongly recommended that the property is protected, before flooding occurs, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. An awareness of characteristics of the New Eltham area likely to affect the house in New Eltham also enables the house surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the residents, but this information may not be accurate.

Fortunately, no recent flood warnings were given for New Eltham, according to the Environment Agency.
