HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Stepney and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Stepney property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Stepney property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the unmodernised property we want to lease it looked like there is an unsafe electrical system; will the surveyor report on the general state of the electrical system?

During a Stepney Homebuyer Report the surveyor will comment on the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state. The RICS surveyor is trained to report on things like the condition residual circuit breakers (RCD) and/or miniature circuit breakers (MCBs). A check for the documentation from any recent PIR carried out by an electrician on the property will form part of the survey.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there may be asbestos ceiling material concealed in the property. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials for example boards around windows. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good tensile strength properties, it may be found in boards around radiators.

All forms including white are hazardous and might lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to remove it and expert advice should be sought ASAP.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Stepney HomeBuyer report. Surveyors will mention possible asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.

House Prices

There is a property in E1 with an asking price of £615, 654. What things does the qualified surveyor take into account when calculating house prices in Stepney ?

There are a huge number of issues which could have a bearing on the price of property like the square footage or the location and proximity of nearby schools. It often helps to look at house prices achieved in the area for comparable properties.

The average house price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £641, 654, which is £26, 000 more than the selling price. The combined house/flat average was £339, 480. 10, Dakin Place, London, Tower Hamlets, Greater London, E1 0NZ a Terraced property went for £2, 500, 000 .

The best way to get an impartial home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part. A surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.
