Home Buyers Survey in Canning Town

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Canning Town and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Canning Town property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Canning Town property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What defects will the Property Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Canning Town which we wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact a type of render. Typically it is applied to underlying red brick hardens to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The finish is highly beautiful and is often found on Victorian buildings. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Canning Town frequently detail issues such as lateral hairline cracking that follows the lines of mortar in the brickwork.

Another example of problems may be when dampness under DPCs that causes large areas of detachment. Re-applying problems with stucco may be costly as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the building I expect to move into, it appeared that there were damaged electrical sockets - does a Homebuyer Report in Canning Town write anything on the electrical system?

During a Home Buyers Survey in Canning Town the surveyor will usually mention the electrical system if it is obvious that they are in an unsafe state of repair. Your surveyor will also things like verifying the condition of the fitted appliances, e.g. storage radiators or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of switch gear. Reporting on any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by an electrician on the building should usually form part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers suggest a PIR be completed every ten years (or every 5 if letting out).
