HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Streatham and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Streatham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Streatham property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Are wet conditions an issue in Streatham? Will the HomeBuyer Report give details on this?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which high levels of rainfall has on Streatham buildings is usually overlooked. One indication that gutters are under performing is spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts. Poor drainage can lead to water damage.

Whether buying in Streatham or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, if caught early.However, the

damage caused, where untreated or poorly maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a house close to a landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including domestic refuse. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include complex organic chemicals. Health concerns for example cancer have been associated with landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Streatham will examine structural defects linked to the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency database and Lambeth Local Authority and advise you .

Damaged Render

What defects will the Streatham Surveyor consider on a stucco Victorian home in Streatham that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually a kind of smooth render. Normally stucco is layered over brick to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is highly aesthetic and is often found on Regency buildings for example. Stucco is often prone to defect and Streatham Home Buyers Suveys commonly show potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. horizontal hairline cracking revealing the underlying mortar joints. Other potential problems may be when dampness below windows that causes detachment. Fixing problems may be costly as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
