Home Buyers Survey in West Ham

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in West Ham and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the West Ham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the West Ham property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there could be loose asbestos ceiling material affecting the property. What is asbestos and can it be easily removed?

Asbestos is a noxious material formed from metamorphic rocks. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials e.g. painted over ceilings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent fire retarding properties, it may be found in lagging. Technically all forms are ultimately pernicious and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to break the asbestos and professional advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a West Ham home survey. Surveyors will report on the risk of asbestos and should inform you of the options.

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to choose the full structural survey if purchasing a un-loved forties home in West Ham over a HomeBuyer Report?

Periodically described as the Full Structural Survey by house buyers, it is no longer offered and this most technical survey has been given a new name by RICS and the right term is now the Building Survey. This is now the most appropriate survey to choose if buying an unusual house - such as an older house. A Building Survey provides in depth and salient details in relation to the houses construction materials in conjunction with any technical details after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building. .
