Home Buyers Survey in Homerton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Homerton and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Homerton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Homerton property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our HomeBuyer Report inquire into signs of flooding damage?

Heavy rain, drains blocked with sewage or soil and burst pipes can cause floods, and house buyers and owners are understandably concerned. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. properly constructed drainage. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a house survey if the surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the home is at risk.

According to the Environment Agency, no flood warnings were found for Homerton.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact should rainfall have on our new Homerton building?

Both in Homerton, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact rainfall can have on a home is often overlooked. Signs that rainwater goods are damaged include "gushing" gutters.

Whether buying in Homerton or elsewhere, difficult rainwater goods does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. If not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Homerton and are looking for a residence with stretcher bond walls. What suggestions can a Homerton property surveyor make? Does render make a difference?

Brick converted property in Homerton will be affected by various issues and defects. For example, extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork and may require immediate attention. Contact several local builders for quotes, including CM Brickwork Solutions of The Manor/Manor Rd, Stockport, SK5 8AQ on 0161-425 4664.

A range of styles and techniques of brick building feature in construction throughout Homerton. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume.

If the Homerton surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
