Home Buyers Survey in Bethnal Green

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Bethnal Green and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Bethnal Green property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Bethnal Green property's state of repair and it includes information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to consider when purchasing an older property? What consequences will the age have on upkeep?

Many buyers in Bethnal Green would be interested in owning a unique or characterful property. Vernacular architecture, however, can create issues for homeowners. Bethnal Green structures built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Construction materials, such as matching stone or wood, , which could mean that it is all the more vital that you get a building survey prior to exchanging.If you have doubts, speak to your property surveyor for more information.

External walls

In a Bethnal Green HomeBuyer Report what are common defects Condition rating 2 impacting 'E4 - Main walls' ?

The surveyor's report on the condition of the external walls will consider all visible defects. If hidden issues with the walls or foundations are suspected, a more comprehensive structural survey may be advised. Damp proofing, including the DPC, is also included here. Cracks in brick walls is one example. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for house buyers deciding whether or not to purchase a property. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Defects which need some attention are rated 'amber' or condition rating 2. This may not be urgent, however. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Bethnal Green house being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Property Surveyor be looking for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Bethnal Green that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is just a kind of smooth render. Normally it is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth flat finish. The effect is highly appealing and is often found on Victorian and Regency properties. it can be problematic and Bethnal Green Building Surveys can discover issues such as lateral cracking that follows the lines of mortar in the brickwork. Other issues can possibly result be when moisture under sills that causes detachment requiring raking back and reapplying. Fixing problems can be difficult and costly as skilled tradesmen are getting more difficult to find.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the house I intend to acquire, the agent said that there is an old fuse board - does a Homebuyer Report in Bethnal Green report on the electrics?

During a Bethnal Green Home Buyers Survey a RICS surveyor will typically remark on the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in an unsafe state. A Surveyor should also focus on things like whether there is an off-peak /on-peak supply.

Confirming the existence of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician will form part of the survey. Reporting on any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey.
