HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Walworth and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Walworth property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Walworth property's state of repair along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco regency home in Walworth.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really a type of render. Normally stucco is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth and attractive finish. Stucco is highly beautiful and was common on some Victorian and Regency properties. it can be problematic and Walworth Homebuyer Reports commonly report issues such as lateral cracking that follows the mortar joints underneath. Other issues might be when water below windows that causes the render detaching. Re-covering problems with stucco can be dear as the skills are getting harder to find.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a conversion built Bath stone. What related issues must we watch out for?

Purchasers in Walworth should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Walworth are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This external aspect will usually be supported by a rubble or brick wall. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as.

Purchasers renovating properties in Walworth should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey, as part of the Building Stone Assessment GeoReport. To source stone quarried in Walworth, you can contact local suppliers.

Other external areas of the property

For the Walworth HomeBuyer Report what are the usual Condition Rating 1 defects affecting 'E9 - Other' ?

This category is used for external elements that require reporting that do not fit elsewhere in Section E. Your surveyor can provide more details if required. Rot and insect damage to conservatory joists would be reported here, for example. Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1. Elements of Section E marked as condition rating 1 may however still require regular maintenance.
