About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Waltham Forest

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Waltham Forest and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Waltham Forest property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension on the property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you comprehensive details of the Waltham Forest property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor check the state of the gas mains supply?

A RICS surveyor will visually check any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at whether the meter is in an escape route as part of the Waltham Forest survey, as well as gas affiliated appliances for example - associated asbestos. Should there be any external fittings or housings they won't however be detached. Of course, gas is potentially fatal and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic has created issues for us at our old property - What does a chartered surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

This is frequently addressed by RICS surveyors. Many properties may be exposed to damage to the roof, including. Every element should be checked, e.g. trusses. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Waltham Forest, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the RICS surveyors will look for a range of signs, including badly installed felting.

The expense of wholesale replacement, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing specialist can provide one.
