HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in East London and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the East London property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the East London property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about an infestation. What should we do?

Scare stories about house pest problems are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as cluster flies as minor annoyances.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. An affected house may not always be easy to identify.

For example, 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. As some pest problems can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Gas flame

Will the local surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas flues?

A local surveyor will visually check any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the location of the meter as part of the East London survey, as well as gas affiliated fixtures like fixed external ventilation hearths. However, the East London qualified surveyor will not remove the gas fittings and will not carry out any tests of any kind on the appliances or system. Of course, gas is potentially hazardous and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 18th Century converted barn. Will the building's age be a concern?

For houses in East London built before the 20th Century, age can worry purchasers, and Homes showcasing traditional methods can be expensive to maintain. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials. If you plan to make alterations to a period home, discuss options with your surveyor for further advice.
