HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Victoria Docks and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Victoria Docks property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Victoria Docks property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is high levels of rainfall an issue in Victoria Docks? Can damaged rainwater goods decrease our property's value?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet rain and the effect it can have on Victoria Docks buildings are usually overlooked by house purchasers. One indication that downspouts are a cause for concern is spalling on walls around drainage. If you are concerned, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to fix if dealt with quickly, unless they are untreated or poorly maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Building Surveys on houses

Should we opt for a full structural survey when considering a doer-upper sixties home near Victoria Docks instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Recurrently called a Full Structural Survey by many, it is no longer offered and this most technical survey has been given a new name by RICS and the correct term is now the Building Survey. RICS would recommend that you go for a Building Survey for the house mentioned. The HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a 60 year old or less unmodified home of standard construction materials.

There are a number survey no go areas exist with any survey as a RICS surveyor will not be able to open up the structure of the building nor can he/she investigate the internal state of any flues.

Asbestos roof tiles

There may be a danger of white asbestos flooring materials at the house. Why would there be asbestos and can it be treated?

Asbestos is a dangerous silicate material of several naturally occurring materials. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including soffit boards. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in duct connectors.

All forms are ultimately deadly and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to break the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a Victoria Docks home survey. Surveyors will report on suspected asbestos during the survey and should offer advice.
