About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Leytonstone

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Leytonstone and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Leytonstone property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Leytonstone property's condition as well as advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I would need to look out for if purchasing a building in Leytonstone near a conservation area?

There are thousands official conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Leytonstone must have knowledge of relevant local area issues and any relation may have with the property. The price of property is, more often than not, more than prices outside the area which is down to conservation areas being in their original state. However a growing number are falling into a state for example - the huge increase in street clutter

RICS surveyors will report whether the building is/might be classified as such and Section I of the Leytonstone Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are conducted during the conveyancing process. Out of keeping developments to the property may be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by your lawyer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a Leytonstone property but are worried about insects. How do we investigate further?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. When purchasing a house, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Remedies to vermin can include use of insecticides. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a maisonette proximate to a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. hazardous waste material disposal. No one wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns include methane gas generation. Health issues for example congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will flag up structural issues linked to the site. Your lawyer will commission environmental searches of the Landmark database as well as Waltham Forest Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
