Home Buyers Survey in Stoke Newington

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Stoke Newington and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Stoke Newington property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Stoke Newington property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My wife spotted signs of pests in the loft. Do we need a chartered surveyor?

Property purchasers in Stoke Newington should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, for example, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Remedies to pest problems can include removal or excision of affected timber. Your Stoke Newington surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a house close to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: hazardous refuse disposal. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example .

Stoke Newington surveyors will find structural problems connected with the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Landmark databases as well as Hackney Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Stone block wall damage

Will a home with stone walls cause problems? Which major potential issues should we consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

From Grey Dunhouse Sandstone to Wroxton Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Issues including mould affect many stone-walled property. 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. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Gas flame

Does a chartered surveyor go into detail on the serviceability of the gas flues?

A qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually look at the accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) for instance, as well as gas affiliated fixtures like flue/chimney maintenance. Any external fittings won't actually be taken off. The gas system won't be tested in any way. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it can be dangerous and if there are any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Regulations stipulate landlords have to carry out appliance and installation inspections every year. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines .
