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 .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Nunhead include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate

A Homebuyer Report in Nunhead will include an independent valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. To ascertain the value of the property your independent surveyor will call upon in depth understanding of the Nunhead market as well as other factors about the property e.g. desirability of the location. Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and will draw upon key assumptions like there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected. Surveyors will disregard things like furnishings.

Additional local area conjectures, such as use of parking or issues with access, are made in addition to any Nunhead environmental issues like the property being underneath a flight path, also being considered. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Are wet conditions an issue in Nunhead? Will the building survey report on this? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Regular rainfall is common in Nunhead and across the country, but rain and the effect it can have on a house are rarely paid due attention by house purchasers.

Signs that drainage are at risk include rotten roofing elements. The good news is that guttering issues are generally easy to repair, if identified early. Where this is poorly maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a home in Nunhead and saw evidence of wall cracks in the dining room. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence issues does the Surveyor report on?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a structure and its foundations. Subsidence may be confused with settlement. Settlement generally happens in new structures, and is rarely a cause for concern. The structure's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact. Generally, a builder will return to a new structure after time has passed so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the brickwork or walls on the outside may indicate subsidence. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Organic material such as peat is usually stable if kept moist by the water level, but if the water level falls and the soil dries out, this organic matter will begin to rot and become unstable. This will cause the soil beneath and around the foundations to collapse.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home, with no underpinning required. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Underpinning is usually a last resort due to the cost and inconvenience. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.
