HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Wandsworth and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Wandsworth property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Wandsworth property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled converted barn. Are there any major matters that we should be aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of houses. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include salt contamination of. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. This external aspect will usually be supported by a rubble or brick wall. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a HomeBuyer Report investigate any water damage?

Burst dams, poor drainage and tidal activity can cause flood damage; sensible owners and home buyers in Wandsworth are right to consider precautions. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, advise on urgent repairs.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. the use of lime-based plaster on walls. The property surveyor may ask the estate agent if the residential property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
