Home Buyers Survey in East London

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in East London and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the East London property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the East London property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any issues we would need to verify when buying a period property in East London near a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors need to possess local knowledge of relevant local area issues and the connection may have with the property. Property values is usually more than prices outside the area due to them being preserved.

RICS surveyors are trained to tell you if the house is possibly is so classified and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted as part of the legal process. Unconsented adjustments to the property may also be noted, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.

House Prices

There is a house in East London. What will the surveyor evaluate when calculating house prices in East London ?

There are a huge number of issues which could have a bearing on property values for instance the amount of ground rent or whether it is near the coast or has a coastal view. .

The most accurate way for home buyers to get an accurate home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a professional valuation by default. A qualified RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 18th Century converted barn. Will the building's age be a concern?

For houses in East London built before the 20th Century, age can worry purchasers, and Homes showcasing traditional methods can be expensive to maintain. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials. If you plan to make alterations to a period home, discuss options with your surveyor for further advice.

Building Surveys on houses

If buying an abandoned regency terraced property, is it necessary to get a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey is now reclassified as the Building Survey. If contemplating the buying of an altered home e.g. a dilapidated house in East London, Building Survey is the most appropriate property survey to go for. After a thorough visual inspection of the accessible areas of the house, the RICS surveyors report will be sent to the purchaser outlining any crucial advice concerning the state of repair of the house.

There are one or two limitations with a property survey as a chartered surveyor will not be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the fabric of the of the East London house, an example being the removing loft contents.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report will contain an independent valuation and will also include a cost of reinstatement. To ascertain the value of the property the surveyor will take into account awareness of the East London property market and other considerations about the property e.g. number of bedrooms Surveyors also reflect on construction methods and draw upon key assumptions such as the building connected to mains services such as electricity.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further East London conjectures, for example service connections, are made in addition to any East London environmental concerns like industrial buildings, which will also be factored in.
