HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Redbridge and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Redbridge property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give you comprehensive details of the Redbridge property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

For the Redbridge HomeBuyer Report what are the usual Condition Rating 1 defects affecting 'E9 - Other' ?

One example would be poor quality materials used in the construction of a porch. The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Your surveyor can provide more details if required. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, with a minimum of technical jargon. Red, amber and green ratings give purchasers indicate how concerning each aspect of the report is. Green, or condition rating 1, indicates that no repair is currently needed, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the Redbridge house. If a Redbridge house does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

Conservation area

Are there any things I need to look out for when purchasing a house in Redbridge inside Woodford Bridge conservation area ?

Woodford Bridge is in a conservation area and has been classified as 'poor' by English Heritage, with low vulnerability and deteriorating. For more information visit their website or call the administrator. There are 9, 300 official conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local authority. Woodford Bridge is monitored by London Borough of Redbridge Council at PO Box No2, Town Hall, 128- 142 High Road, Essex, IG1 1DD. Contact 020 8554 5000. Your surveyor need to have relevant knowledge of local considerations and the effect they have on the building. The value of homes will probably be enhanced owing to them being in good order.

Surveyors can be expected to report if the planned purchase is/might be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Redbridge Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are conducted by your legal adviser. Unapproved modifications to the building will also be advised but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there may be a danger of asbestos duct connectors being found in the ground floor flat. Why would there be asbestos, is it dangerous, can it be remedied and What should I do?

Concerns relating to asbestos are not uncommon. Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous mineral formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials e.g. eaves. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance properties, it may be found in ironing boards. Most asbestos was imported from South Africa.

All forms are ultimately hazardous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Contrary to breathing in a single fibre is not fatal.

If discovered, one must be careful never to displace the asbestos and expert advice must be taken immediately. Getting rid of it may be dear but must be conducted by experts.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a Redbridge HomeBuyer report. They will report on the risk of asbestos risks and will recommend professional testing.
