About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Silvertown

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Silvertown and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Silvertown property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Silvertown property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My partner spotted signs of vermin in the bathroom - Is a HomeBuyer Report advisable?

Pests like bed bugs may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Silvertown. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. Signs may not be obvious, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Treatment for pest problems may include removal or excision of affected timber. Your home surveyor may report on signs of infestation.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're purchasing in Silvertown. Is there a flood risk, and will the Silvertown surveyor look for any flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected neighbour's houses?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity. Both purchasers and home owners in areas at risk of flooding are right to be worried. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the property in question is in danger, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the property surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the residence is at risk.

The River Thames riverside from the Thames Barrier to Putney Bridge, near Silvertown, was given an updated status of 'No warnings' on 18/12/12, by the Environment Agency.
