HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in West Dulwich and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the West Dulwich property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension on the property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the West Dulwich property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a West Dulwich Survey Quote online or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we should be conscious of if intending to buy a building in West Dulwich near a conservation area ?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by local councils.

Home Buyers Surveys in West Dulwich are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area factors and any relation may have with the building. Property Prices are typically significantly higher as a result of the areas being largely unspoilt However a large number have been neglected and are in shoddy condition for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

RICS surveyors will note if the home might be is so classified and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Unsympathetic extensions to the building should be advised in your survey, however these should be concern for the solicitor.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when purchasing a house next to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: inert waste. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries include hazardous chemicals. Potential health problems like cancer have been associated with landfill sites .

West Dulwich RICS surveyors will find any structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark database in addition to Southwark Local Authority and advise you .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a West Dulwich residential surveyor consider water damage, or whether flooding has affected neighbouring property?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and the value of a home in West Dulwich in an at-risk area may be impacted. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the residence or on adjacent sites, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

The Environment Agency state that no warnings have been for West Dulwich.
