HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Wanstead Flats property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Wanstead Flats property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying an older warehouse conversion in Wanstead Flats. What consequences will the residence's timber frame have on maintenance?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can worry purchasers, and Properties built using traditional methods can be a chore to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could make the final cost hard to predict.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw a property I want to acquire I noticed that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox, will the Wanstead Flats surveyor write anything on the electrics?

When carrying out a Wanstead Flats Home Survey the surveyor should add detail on the electrical system if it is apparent that they are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. A Home surveyor will also report back on things like whether there are residual circuit breakers (RCD) and/or miniature circuit breakers (MCBs).

Confirming the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by an electrician should form part of the Homebuyer report in Wanstead Flats.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance caused problems in the past, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What should we look for?

Questions like this are often asked of RICS surveyors by property purchasers who are aware that property will suffer difficulties with the roof, for example, damp. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from collar ties to eaves. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like badly installed felting.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Wanstead Flats, but it is a health and safety necessity. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable builder in Wanstead Flats.
