Home Buyers Survey in Chadwell Heath

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Chadwell Heath and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Chadwell Heath property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Chadwell Heath property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our agent warned us that access to the attic could be problematic. What does the surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

Local property in otherwise fine condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roof maintenance problems, such as missing tiles. Any part of the roof or loft, such as collar beams, ought to be checked. The surveyors in Chadwell Heath could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal. Contact APT Roofing of 20 Lindisfarne Rd, Dagenham, RM8 2QX on 07947 865580 for a quote.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact will wet weather have on our new home in Chadwell Heath, and does our Chadwell Heath home buyers survey mention it? And could it affect the property value?

Both in Chadwell Heath, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the effect which heavy rainfall has on houses is not given more thought by house purchasers. For example, rotten wooden gutters will likely suggest that the rainwater goods are damaged.

Fortunately, guttering issues are quite easy to fix. However, if the drains are not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw a property I expect to purchase it looked like there were damaged electrical sockets, does a the surveyor write anything on any faults with the electrics?

When preparing a Home Survey in Chadwell Heath a surveyor should report on the overall electrical system if it is suspected that the electrics are in a hazardous state.

This will include a general inspection (without removing any fittings) of the unconcealed parts of the wiring and other things, for example verifying the condition of the fixed electrical appliances like storage radiators or checking the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Inspecting any documentation from any recent PIR handled by an electrician should usually be part of the survey.

The IEE recommend a Periodic Inspection be completed at least every 10 years (5 if letting out).

House Prices

Is £158, 100 within the right sort of area amount to pay for a property located in RM6 for and what things does the Chadwell Heath local surveyor take into account during a RICS valuation ?

There is a near endless list of things which could have a bearing on property values for example the history of the property (e.g does it have a murky past) or whether it has any outdoor space. It often helps to put side by side flat values achieved in Chadwell Heath at the same time for comparable properties. The average flat price completed between July and October in 2012 was £140, 500 - £17, 600 less than £158, 100. The average factoring in houses and flats was £221, 744. 409A, Whalebone Lane North, Romford, Barking And Dagenham, Greater London, RM6 6RH a leasehold flat recently sold for £129, 000 .

An impartial way for home buyers to get a formal house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation by default. A RICS surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.
