Home Buyers Survey in Wapping

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Wapping and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Wapping property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Wapping property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Flemish bond upkeep guidance - can a surveyor in Wapping assist? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Wapping brick-walled conversions can show signs of several common problems. These can include weathering or badly applied render. The surveyor can investigate these as part of their report along with recommendations. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away.

Brick-build property have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years, leading to a good selection of methods and styles. Consider renegotiating the price of the Wapping property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to investigate when purchasing a building constructed in 1790? What should be budgeted for regular maintenance?

Many buyers would be interested in owning a old, characterful home one day. Vernacular architecture, however, can concern buyers, and Wapping property built with traditional methods can be costly to repair. You should bear in mind that expert knowledge may be needed. Especially for property in a conservation area, Traditional building materials may be required. If you have doubts, speak to the property surveyor for more detail.
