HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Streatham Hill property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Streatham Hill property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any issues we need to be conscious of when buying a house in Streatham Hill near a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas in the UK which are governed by local authorities. Your surveyor must possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local factors and any effect may have with the property and its value. The price of property will probably be higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to the areas being preserved.

Surveyors are expected advise you if the property is/might be in a conservation area and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are raised by the conveyancing solicitor. Unapproved extensions to the building may also be advised but these are really more a concern for your lawyer.

Traditionally built property

What should we investigate when purchasing an older property in Streatham Hill? Will the age of the house be an issue?

Some buyers have considered buying a old, characterful home one day. Older construction methods and materials, however, can be problematic.
