About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Fairlop

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Fairlop and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Fairlop property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Fairlop property's general condition as well as including advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look out for on a stucco Victorian home in Fairlop which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is in fact dense render. Normally stucco is applied to underlying brick hardens to form a very smooth surface. Stucco render is highly aesthetic and is often found on Victorian and Georgian houses. it can be problematic and Surveyors frequently discover any number of problems such as dampness trapped behind paint (assuming painted). Other potential problems may be when water gets in below flashings that results in detachment. Resolving problems with stucco may be difficult as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Traditionally built property

What should we think about when buying older property in Fairlop? Will the age of the residence be a concern?

Some buyers would be interested in owning a home with character. The age of a structure, however, can create difficulties for an owner. Fairlop property showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be difficult to upkeep. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of , for example, a Grade II listed house. This may mean long-term upkeep.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of if buying a building near to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including commercial waste. Nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Concerns might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example .

Building Surveys and valuations in Fairlop will note structural issues connected with the site. Your solicitor will carry out conveyancing searches of the British Geological data sets and Redbridge Local Authority and advise you .
