HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Welling and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Welling property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give a thorough analysis of the Welling property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Welling, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What aspects of the roof of the home will be reported on?

Welling property with no other major issues will suffer roof maintenance problems, such as bowing beams. From valley gutters to dormer windows, every part of the roof will be taken into account, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like a complete replacement, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about if buying a property proximate to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including inert waste material. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries include hazardous chemicals. Health problems like gut problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Welling RICS surveyors will note structural defects resulting from the site. Your lawyer will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological databases and Bexley Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 18th Century converted barn. Will upkeep costs be higher?

Some buyers in Welling would like to own a house with personality, like a Georgian terrace. Vernacular architecture, however, can concern buyers, and Structures built with traditional methods can be a drain to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of Welling's conservation areas. This may make asking the seller for more detail about their current maintenance regime a good idea. Speak to your surveyor for further advice.
