HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Snaresbrook and which is cheaper?

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

If the Snaresbrook property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Snaresbrook property's general condition as well as information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact may wet weather have on a building in Snaresbrook? Could it affect the property value?

Regular rainfall is common in Snaresbrook and across the country, but rain and the effect it can have on Snaresbrook buildings are often overlooked. If you have only been to the house in dry weather, defects may not have been obvious.

Signs that drainage are blocked include spalling masonry. This could then result in a damp or flooded cellar.

Fortunately, guttering issues are generally easy to fix, unless they are untreated or poorly maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

House Prices

I am planning to buy a house in Snaresbrook. What factors will surveyor allow for in the process of a Home Survey ?

There are a great number of factors that can affect house prices ranging from national factors such as interest rates to the amount of accommodation it offers. .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get a formal home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a professional valuation as standard. A local surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

The RICS chartered surveyor will always visit the property as well as factoring in any other influences that can impact on property values.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there might be asbestos coatings spayed on beams in existence at the house. What is asbestos and what are the risks?

Asbestos is a deleterious material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials including sprayed on coatings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in sealant. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to remove the asbestos and professional advice should be sought ASAP.

Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. However they will mention the risk of asbestos during the survey and should suggest experts are consulted.
