Top tips for a South Kensington Home Buyers Survey


South Kensington was fairly undeveloped until the mid-19th century however since then there was a serious growth in both municipal, commercial and residential properties. For the residential properties, there are a fair number of splendid Victorian terraces but also large Victorian detached houses around pleasantly green squares. Imperial College – of the University of London – is one such large and beautiful properties with a prominent arch for an entrance.

A recent Environmental Search report bought for a property in Cheesemans Terrace W14 9XA in the South Kensington area revealed that the property a client was looking to buy was at a potential risk of surface water flooding within 250m of the property and also that there was a risk of flooding within the same distance again from rivers and sea. These findings are important for considering overall flood risks when you're considering buying a property and your solicitor can frame further enquiries if necessary and you can also assess the potential impact on your buildings insurance premiums.
A RICS HomeBuyer Report considers a whole host of observations the surveyor makes when inspecting a property you're looking to buy. In a recent example a client bought for a property in Sloane Avenue Mansions, Sloane Avenue, London SW3 3JR the surveyor noted that the fire door operations had been removed to the doors and that therefore the client should consider reinstatement for fire safety purpose and that this was especially important given that there were no smoke alarms in the flat itself.
A Building Survey is the gold standard of defect surveys if you are looking to buy a home and is particularly suited to non-standard construction, and/or large and/or older dwellings.

To illustrate the depth it can go to, in a recent such survey bought for a property in Montpelier Street, West Brompton, London SW7 1HD the surveyor noted that, regarding the gutters, downpipes and valleys, a metal scotia was fitted (a scotia is a decorative moulding used to cover a gap without removing the skirting) and that although it would prevent the majority of the runoff from the gutters, the surveyor recommended that it be removed to allow the runoff to flow over the edge of the roof as a more efficient arrangement.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in South Kensington and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Level 2 HomeBuyer Report with a Valuation

A HomeBuyer Report, also known as a Home Buyers Survey, is generally suitable for:

  • Bungalows
  • Flats
  • Standard construction houses

The majority of South Kensington's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
