If the North East London property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will offer comprehensive details of the North East London property's condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there is a concern of loose asbestos in the home. What is asbestos, can it be easily dealt with and what does the surveyor do?

Homes constructed earlier than around 1985 will probably conceal some materials containing asbestos. Asbestos is a noxious fibrous structured mineral. Some types may be in building materials including powdery sprayed on coatings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in soffit boards. The main origins of asbestos were Canada.

All forms are deadly and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to breathing in a solitary fibre is not deadly.

If discovered, one must be careful never to disturb the asbestos and expert advice must be taken without delay. Getting rid of asbestos is expensive must always be conducted by professionals. Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will report on potential asbestos during the North East London survey and will advise accordingly.

House Prices

What is the right ball park amount to buy a property in North East London for and what will the North East London qualified RICS surveyor evaluate during a survey ?

There are many factors which could positively or negatively affect the price of property for example the legality of extensions or whether there is any subsidence. .

The only way for you to get an accurate and professional property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as an inclusive part. Your RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

A chartered surveyor will always actually visit the site in addition to allowing for the large variety of things affecting the value of property.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have been told that clay soil can cause difficulties for houses in North East London. Will the Property Survey consider this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a North East London home will have an impact. Issues range from moisture changes in the soil to movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, both of which can put a home's foundations under great strain. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. Visible results may be anything from separation of the skirting board from the floor to warped window frames in the kitchen.

Taking precautions, such as after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
