About Us

Home Buyers Survey in East Ham

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in East Ham and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the East Ham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the East Ham property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a East Ham property with a loft conversion. Which issues relating to the attic will be looked into?

This often causes anxiety for buyers in East Hamwho know how costly roofing work can be. Homes throughout East Ham can be hiding serious difficulties with the roof, for example, dry rot. From fascias to collar beams, all aspects of the roof will be taken into account. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in East Ham, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the house surveyors will look for a range of signs, including holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

The expense of loft insulation, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A East Ham builder can provide an estimate.

House Prices

There is a detached property close to good transport links in E6 in East Ham on for £235, 353. What considerations will a qualified surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in East Ham ?

A myriad of factors exist which could positively or negatively affect property values e.g. the history of the property (e.g does it have a murky past) or overall area pricing. It can help to analyse house values registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties.

The average house price recorded at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £207, 253, which is £28, 100 less than the asking price (£193, 180 was the blended house/flat average). 20, Trader Road, London, Newham, Greater London, E6 6FR a detached house sold for £270, 000 .

The most cost effective way for you to get a professional house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as a core component.

A professional chartered surveyor will always attend the house in addition to factoring in any other area variables affecting property values.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a converted cow-house. What effect will the cruck frame have on regular maintenance?

Some buyers hope to own a unique or characterful property. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can create difficulties for an owner. East Ham property built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. This can create disruption for new owners. Contact the RICS surveyor for more detail.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of if buying a property close to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: inert refuse disposal. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane .

East Ham surveyors will find structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency data sets and Barking and Dagenham Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
