HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Whitechapel and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Whitechapel property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give comprehensive details of the Whitechapel property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Are wet conditions an issue in Whitechapel?

Both in Whitechapel, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the effect which rainfall has on Whitechapel homes is not considered by house purchasers. For instance, streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering suggest that the drainage are a cause for concern. Blocked rainwater goods can result in cracked foundations and subsidence.

In most cases, drainage problems are quite easy to fix if dealt with quickly. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a property built Ham Hill stone. What issues must we watch out for?

There are numerous of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Defects such as staining affect many stone-walled Whitechapel properties. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Whitechapel properties, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

Traditionally built property

We are buying an old converted stable. Will the building's age be a concern?

Many buyers hope to own a home with character. A property's age, however, can worry purchasers, and Structures employing traditional methods can be challenging to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. .

Construction materials, such as suitable timber, may also need to be sourced. This can be a good opportunity to discuss lowering the purchase price to cover repair costs. If you plan to make alterations to a period residence, discuss options with your surveyor for further advice.
