HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Temple Fortune and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Temple Fortune property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications on the property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give comprehensive details of the Temple Fortune property's general condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservatory

In the HomeBuyer Report what might a Condition Rating 1 mean for 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. Inappropriate use of internal doors in doorways leading outside will be considered too. A missing step up into a house is an example of this.

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. As buyers in Temple Fortune are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green to what extent each defect requires attention. Green, or condition rating 1, indicates that no repair is currently needed. However, frequent maintenance could

still be needed. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the Temple Fortune residence. If a Temple Fortune residence does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick walls on this Tudor property has deteriorated - what should we do? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Temple Fortune brick-walled structures can experience several common problems. Your RICS surveyor would usually include these, with directions for remedy. One serious matter is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs. Contact Connolly D for a repairs estimate at 020 8599 2080 or 249 South Park Drive, Ilford, IG3 9AL.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include English garden wall bond is often a mix of Flemish and Monk bonds.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

What should I be concerned about when buying a property near to a rubbish tip

Risks might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Health concerns like abdominal wall problems have been linked to landfill sites .
