HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Selhurst property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension on the Selhurst property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Selhurst property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will my Chartered Surveyor consider on a stipple rendered (stucco) regency house in Selhurst that I intend to purchase.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is actually dense render. Normally stucco render is layered over underlying red brick hardens to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The coating is very appealing and is was often applied to Victorian and Georgian houses. it can be problematic and Surveyors can reveal issues such as damp trapped under paint

Another example of problems may be when dampness gets in below flashings which causes large areas of detachment. Resolving problems may be expensive as craftsmen are getting harder to find.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Selhurst building will include an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate as part of the report. To fully consider the property's value your RICS valuer will use experience of property in Selhurst and other things relating to the property e.g. style of architecture The surveyor will also consider construction methods and will use key assumptions e.g. the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. RICS valuations assume that there are no impossible to rectify legal issues e.g. there being no on going disputes. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area conjectures like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like local Selhurst industrial considerations, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Selhurst, and will the residential surveyor look for flood damage?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and property purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. An awareness of characteristics of the Selhurst area likely to affect the residential property also enables the chartered surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor or agent, but this information may not be accurate.

No recent flood warnings were found for Selhurst, according to the Environment Agency.
