HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in West Brompton and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the West Brompton property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the West Brompton property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a 17th Century dovecot. What should be budgeted for regular maintenance?

Many purchasers hope to own a home with character, such as a Victorian home. The age of a structure, however, can concern buyers. West Brompton property employing traditional methods can be a chore to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. If you plan to make alterations to a period property, discuss options with your chartered surveyor for more information.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're intending to buy in West Brompton. Is there a flood risk, and will the property surveyor check indications of flooding damage, or if neighbour's houses have been affected?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a West Brompton home will be secure against water damage caused by flooding, and home buyers and owners are understandably concerned. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a West Brompton property, such as via door frames. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the West Brompton property or on adjacent sites. The RICS surveyor may ask the vendor about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

According to the Environment Agency, no recent flood warnings were found for West Brompton.

Damaged Render

What problems will a Chartered Surveyor consider on a stucco rendered house in West Brompton.

Stucco is just a kind of render. Commonly stucco is applied to brick that dries to a smooth and even finish. The coating is very aesthetic and is often found on Victorian buildings. Stucco is often problematic and West Brompton Building Surveys can focus on any number of problems such as horizontal cracking revealing the mortar joints underneath

Another example of problems may be when water below DPCs which causes detachment. Remedying problems may be costly as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
