Home Buyers Survey in Tower Hamlets

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Tower Hamlets and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Tower Hamlets property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Tower Hamlets property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I am acquiring a substantially modified period end of terrace home - is it necessary to get a full structural survey?

Full Structural Surveys have been renamed as Building Surveys. If contemplating the buying of an altered Tower Hamlets house - such as a dilapidated house, it is the right choice of home survey. A Building Survey will detail full and often serious details concerning the property's state of repair in addition to any technical details after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the house.

. External sports facilities (buildings not the facilities themselves) will typically be surveyed.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What warnings would you give for a property built with brick? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick-constructed residences demonstrate several benefits. However, they can also suffer from numerous defects, including frost damage and cracks. Your surveyor will mention these along with recommendations. A defect requiring immediate attention is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. Just The Brickwork Ltd at Unit 8 Westcott Busines Venture Park, Westcott, Aylesbury, HP18 0QD should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01296 433452.

Buyers in Tower Hamlets should consider that a number of styles are found in many homes built in this country. This being the case, upkeep may not always be straightforward. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations I should check out when purchasing a property in Tower Hamlets in the vicinity of Tower Hamlets Cemetery conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

Your surveyor need to possess sufficient knowledge of local considerations and the effect they have on the home. The value of homes is typically greater due to the areas being preserved.

RICS surveyors can be expected to advise you if the house is or might be is designated and Section I of a Tower Hamlets Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are carried out by your conveyancer. Out of keeping adjustments to the building may also be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by the solicitor.
