    The Homebuyer Report is the right choice if planning to purchase a home constructed from standard materials such as tile and brick, in reasonable order and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Peckham and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Peckham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Peckham property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect can damp weather have on our new home in Peckham? And could it affect the property value?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet this issue is not considered by property buyers. If you have investigated the house in on a sunny day, issues may have been hidden. Poor drainage can lead to a damp or flooded cellar.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy. Where this is not unblocked on a regular basis, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Peckham, what input does you give for a residence built from Diagonal bond walls?

Brick flats in Peckham will indicate various issues and defects, from DPC failure to spalling. An especially severe issue is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. D W A Builders may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 204 Hall La, London, E4 8EY or 020 8523 9550.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider ornate Della Robbia bond paving.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled home in Peckham. Are there specific issues to bear in mind? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Maintenance tips include careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

If you are sourcing a particular stone, contact a Peckham firm - Casa Fireplaces of 159 Bellenden Road, London, SE15 4DH could help.
