Home Buyers Survey in Blackwall

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Blackwall and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Blackwall property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Blackwall property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will my Property Surveyor look out for on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Blackwall that we intend to purchase.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is in fact a form of solid render. Usually stucco is layered over brick to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is very beautiful and is/was common on some Victorian and Georgian properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and Blackwall Home Buyers Suveys sometimes highlight defects for example, water trapped behind paint

Another example of problems may be when dampness gets in under sills that causes large areas of detachment. Resolving problems may be difficult as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My husband spotted signs of vermin in the lounge. Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Pests like moths may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Blackwall. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies.

Treatment for a serious infestation may include professional cleaning or destruction of tainted materials. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
