Home Buyers Survey in Goodmayes

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Goodmayes and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Goodmayes property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Goodmayes property's general condition along with an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there is a danger of flaky asbestos roof tiles in existence at the building. Is this a major concern?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous structured mineral of several naturally occurring materials. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials e.g. ceiling boards.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in boilers.

All forms including Chrysotile are carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful never to remove the asbestos and expert advice must be taken ASAP. You should not try to get rid of it yourself. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will note potential asbestos during the Goodmayes survey and will advise accordingly.

Damaged Render

What will the Goodmayes Surveyor be looking for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency home in Goodmayes which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact just dense render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) to form a very smooth surface. The coating is very appealing and is common on some Victorian properties. The composition is very like plaster and mortar in its nature. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Goodmayes frequently reveal potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. when it is exposed to on-going weathering which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost. Other issues could result from the difficulty is diagnosing damp underneath. Resolving Stucco problems may be dear as craftsmen are getting harder to find.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a property in the region a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: non-hazardous rubbish. No one would want to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries include chemicals like dioxins .

Surveyors will flag up any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as Redbridge Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
