HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Nunhead and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Nunhead property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works on the property, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Nunhead property's general condition as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a risk of powdery brown asbestos wallpaper in the home. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials for example shed roofs.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in soil vent pipes. Technically all forms are pernicious and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to disturb asbestos and professional advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos as part of the survey. They will note the risk of asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when buying a maisonette proximate to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: non-hazardous waste material. No one ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks include methane gas generation. Health problems such as birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Nunhead will consider structural problems resulting from the landfill. Your solicitor will commission environmental searches of the British Geological data sets in addition to Lewisham Local Authority and advise you .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the home buyers survey check flooding?

Heavy rain, burst riverbanks and clogged drainage can all result in extensive flood damage, and home purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. The Environment Agency maintain a flood warning service, with regular updated risk assessments. The home survey may also, where appropriate, recommend maintenance.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. lime-based plaster. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a home survey if the chartered surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the Nunhead property is at risk.

No recent Nunhead flood warnings have been given (source: Environment Agency).
