Home Buyers Survey in Little Ilford

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Little Ilford and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Little Ilford property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension on the Little Ilford property, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Little Ilford property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about bugs. Will a surveyor look into this?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. When purchasing a building, this matter should be borne in mind. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Treatment for insect infestation may include traps or removal of infected furniture. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1840s home with stone walls. Which major potential issues should we consider?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as replacing missing or badly worn stones.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Little Ilford. What will we need to bear in mind when purchasing older property? What effect will the home's rafter roof have on regular maintenance?

A property's age can create issues for homeowners. Homes built with traditional methods can be challenging to repair. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Especially for listed buildings, Traditional materials may be required. Mention this to your surveyor for more information.
