HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Newham and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Newham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Newham property's general condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

If investing in a neglected Victorian mid terrace home, should I upgrade to a full structural survey?

Structural surveys have been renamed as Building Surveys. A HomeBuyer Report will suffice for a mid 20th century of later Newham home built out of typical building materials. A Building Survey is the correct survey to go for the house described. Around 3 days following a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the house, a formal written report will be sent to the client giving in depth and relevant professional advice concerning the construction of the house.

There are certain limitations with a Building Survey insofar as a chartered surveyor wont be able to open up the fabric of the of the Newham building such as lifting up fitted carpets. See the survey differences article for more detail on what is and is not included.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The estate agent said that lost tile pegs had been a concern. What should we keep an eye out for during the investigation?

This is often asked by buyers who know that homes can be blighted by roofing problems, such as. Every element should be checked, e.g. fascias. Your Newham surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

The maintenance of a roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable Newham contractor.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What warnings would a Newham property surveyor give for property built from Dutch bond brick? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-built Newham residences do benefit from many advantages. Unfortunately, they also be subject to a range of defects, such as sulphate attack. For instance, rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues and should be taken very seriously. Contact Just The Brickwork Ltd for a repairs estimate at 01296 433452 or Unit 8 Westcott Busines Venture Park, Westcott, Aylesbury, HP18 0QD.

Newham home purchasers may need to consider that good selection of methods and styles may be found throughout England and Wales. For example, Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one.

If the Newham surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
