HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Bethnal Green and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Bethnal Green property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Bethnal Green property's state of repair and it includes information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor has suggested subsidence might be a problem affecting the home. Is this a urgent risk, and what subsidence-related matters will the Bethnal Green Surveyor inspect?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. In most situations, subsidence can be set right. Generally, a builder will return to a new home after six months to make good any settlement cracks.

Cracks that appear without warning may be a strong indication of subsidence. In some cases, the presence of buried peat or other organic material, which begins to rot, can also destabilise the structure. This will cause the soil beneath and around the foundations to collapse.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to consider when purchasing an older property? What consequences will the age have on upkeep?

Many buyers in Bethnal Green would be interested in owning a unique or characterful property. Vernacular architecture, however, can create issues for homeowners. Bethnal Green structures built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Construction materials, such as matching stone or wood, , which could mean that it is all the more vital that you get a building survey prior to exchanging.If you have doubts, speak to your property surveyor for more information.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Bethnal Green surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a garage) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Bethnal Green property will contain a property valuation in addition to a rebuilding cost as an integral part of the report. To be able to determine the correct valuation your independent surveyor will factor in awareness of the Bethnal Green property market and other things relating to the property e.g. general condition The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain other assumptions such as no damaging building techniques have been employed. Surveyors disregard things like sales incentives. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there are no costly legal issues like no troublesome covenants. Such concerns will be unravelled by your solicitor during the legal process.

Additional local area conjectures like the property being insurable, are made in addition to any Bethnal Green environmental issues like local industry, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
