Home Buyers Survey in Lansbury

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Lansbury and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Lansbury property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Lansbury property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the house I want to acquire I think we saw that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; does the Lansbury surveyor report on electrical system condition?

When performing a Lansbury Homebuyer Report the RICS surveyor will make a note on the overall electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsafe state. He or she is trained to focus on things like confirming the state of any fixed appliances like electric showers or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician will be part of the survey in Lansbury.

The IEE strongly advise a PIR need be completed at least every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a property close to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites take many forms for example: commercial rubbish disposal. No one really wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries might include structurally instability. Potential health concerns for example abdominal wall problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Lansbury will note any structural problems connected with the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as Newham Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I know that Lansbury subsidence might be a concern. What can be done to resolve subsidence if it is identified?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. Less common than subsidence, heave occurs where the ground level moves upwards.

Subsidence can be difficult to diagnose because the issues which a Lansbury surveyor will seek to find could easily be caused by other factors. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Peat is normally stable when sat below the water table, but if the water level falls and the soil dries out, this organic matter will decompose. The weight of the foundations will then compress the sub soil.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.
