HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Stockwell property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Stockwell property's state of repair in addition to information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any issues I need to consider if purchasing a house in Stockwell in a conservation area, particularly in relation to house prices?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Stockwell must have sufficient knowledge of local area issues and the relation they have on the home. Property Prices are usually higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to them being in their original state.

Surveyors are trained to tell you if the property is/might be in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Stockwell Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are carried out during the legal process. Unconsented adjustments to the property may be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for your lawyer.

Damage resulting from flooding

We believe this house is located in a low lying part of Stockwell. Is there a major flood risk? Would our home buyers survey investigate flooding?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of homeowners in Stockwell and across the country; sensible owners and property buyers in Stockwell are right to consider precautions. It is strongly recommended that precautions are taken, before flooding occurs. In addition, the property survey may advise on urgent repairs.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect house in Stockwell enables the surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor, but this information may not be accurate.

Fortunately, no recent flood alerts were given for Stockwell, according to the Environment Agency.

Traditionally built property

What should we pay attention to when purchasing older property in Stockwell? What effect will the home's unusual construction have on regular maintenance?

Older construction methods and materials can worry purchasers. Structures showcasing traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced.
