Home Buyers Survey in Haggerston

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Haggerston and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Haggerston property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Haggerston property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Haggerston, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the attic. What advice should we get?

Property purchasers in Haggerston should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem. This issue should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Remedies to pest problems can include insecticides. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Conservation area

Are there any issues we would be advised to check out when purchasing a converted flat in Haggerston inside a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by the local council. Surveyors in Haggerston need to have sufficient knowledge of local area issues and any bearing may have with the building and its value. Property values will be inflated owing to them being in their original state. However a large number have fallen into a state e.g. the removal front garden walls

RICS surveyors can be expected to tell you whether the property is possibly so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Haggerston Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are carried out by your solicitor. Unauthorised adjustments to the property may be reported, however these should be investigated by the lawyer. Obaseki Solicitors are a local firm situated at Unit 1, Hackney, London, E2 8AX might be happy to give you some pointers. Tel: 020 7739 7549

Damage resulting from flooding

We are planning to purchase a house in Haggerston, does the RICS surveyor check for indications of flood damage?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record, and house purchasers and owners are understandably concerned.

Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the house in Haggerston in question is in danger, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect house in Haggerston enables the surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The surveyor will usually recommend that the house purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.
