HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Beckton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Beckton property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Beckton property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

A next-door neighbour warned us about bugs affecting properties nearby - Should we get a RICS surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Signs may not be obvious, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Treatment for vermin may include removal or excision of affected timber. The surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there may be a danger of asbestos insulation situated in the flat. What is asbestos and can it be removed?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous structured mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials including flooring materials. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in fireplace. Technically all forms are ultimately deadly and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to remove it and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Beckton Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos during a Beckton building survey. Surveyors will mention potential asbestos during the Beckton survey and should inform you of the options.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Beckton? Where there is necessary work, what should we do?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the effect which rain has on Beckton homes is overlooked. If you have only seen the house you are buying in the Summer, obvious defects may be harder to find. Poor drainage can lead to penetrating damp.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve. If disregarded, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
