About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Limehouse

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Limehouse and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

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

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Limehouse property's condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Limehouse. What advice would the Limehouse property surveyor give in their report?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors in Limehouse. Houses across Limehouse can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing problems, such as. From tie beams to slates, the roof structure as a whole must be reviewed. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a poor asphalt covering.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like insulating the attic, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to have the full structural survey when acquiring a shabby regency bungalow near Limehouse as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

They are often called a Full Structural Survey by many, it is no longer available has actually been given a new moniker by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. This is the best survey when buying a modified property such as an unloved house in Limehouse. The report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) provides thorough and frequently critical advice about the property's condition along with any needs for future maintenance, shortly after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The English bond walls on this Limehouse house is in poor condition. What are the possible consequences?

Brick-walled Limehouse houses can experience diverse problems. This could be anything from vertical cracking to erosion. For example, rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues and may require immediate attention. For more information, contact a local builder, SJL Bricklayers of 27 Freshwater Rd, London, SW17 9TH on 020 8767 4158.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks, to the rare, such shiner bond describes bricks are laid horizontally as with more common bonds, but the with the wider face parallel to the wall. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.
