HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Wanstead and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Wanstead property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations on the Wanstead property, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Wanstead property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it that we consider rainwater goods? Also, if there are problems, will they be costly to fix?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the effect which wet weather has on a property is not considered by house purchasers. If you have investigated the house you are buying in dry conditions, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that rainwater goods are a cause for concern include spalling on walls around drainage, and may lead to a damp or flooded cellar. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve, if caught early.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when purchasing a maisonette proximate to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including domestic waste disposal. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries might include complex organic chemicals .

Building Surveys and valuations in Wanstead will consider structural problems linked to the site. Your solicitor will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark databases in addition to Redbridge Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Building Surveys on houses

Should I commission the full structural survey if purchasing a modified sixties townhouse near Wanstead as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes described as the Full Structural Survey, this survey is no longer offered and this most technical survey has been re-titled by RICS and the correct term is now the Building Survey. If you are contemplating the buying of an unusual home such as an extended house, it is now the correct RICS survey to opt for. Following an exhaustive survey of the inside and outside of the main building, a non prescribed format of report will be sent to the client going through in depth and frequently critical advice about the standard of construction and repair of the house. There are one or two limitations with a property survey to be aware of because a qualified surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the Wanstead house e.g. lifting up floor coverings.
