HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Creekmouth and which one would be cheaper?

If the Creekmouth property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a home with a converted attic in Creekmouth - What should we do about roof repairs?

Property in and around Creekmouth in good condition can often hide problems like cracked and loose slates or tiles. From dormers to collar beams, the whole roof will be considered, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Creekmouth, but it is a health and safety necessity. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a roofing specialist for the job itself.

Damage resulting from flooding

When purchasing in Creekmouth, should we be uneasy about a flood risk, and will the home surveyor look for flooding?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m properties are at risk of floods, and the value of a Creekmouth home in an at-risk area may be impacted. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a residence through several routes, including loose patio doors. An awareness of characteristics of the Creekmouth area likely to affect the residence also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The surveyor may ask the agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

The Environment Agency have updated the status for the River Thames including areas in the boroughs of Havering, Barking and Dagenham, and Newham, near Creekmouth, to 'No warnings'.

Can Doulting stone-built property in Creekmouth be a challenge. What should we look in to?

Problems which impact stone-built buildings in Creekmouth can vary greatly, with issues like salt contamination of being quote common. 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.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Creekmouth should be able to supply local stone.
