Home Buyers Survey in Lee

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Lee property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Lee property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Lee, and think we saw signs of bugs in the kitchen - What can we do?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. Regrettably, vermin can be very expensive to resolve and carry serious health risks. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property with stone walls create issues? What issues should we be aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

From Portland Roach Limestone to Mountcharles Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Defects such as deteriorating mortar affect many stone-walled properties in Lee. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect said there is a possibility of a white asbestos toilet cistern at the property. What is asbestos, are there any risks and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials such as boards around radiators. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent sound absorption properties, it may be found in artex.

All forms are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken on no account to break asbestos. Professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. They will note suspected asbestos during the survey and should suggest experts are consulted.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the building I am interested to lease, it appeared that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses; does Lee Homebuyer Report give details on on electrical defects?

When carrying out a Lee Homebuyer Report your RICS surveyor will usually make a note on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in a hazardous state of repair.

This should include a non invasive look-over of any uncovered sections of the wiring or fusebox on top of things like ascertaining the condition of any fitted electrical appliances like heaters or checking the condition of a sample of light fittings.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey in Lee.

The IEE strongly advise that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be conducted every ten years (or every 5 if renting out).
