About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Whitechapel

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Whitechapel and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Whitechapel property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give comprehensive details of the Whitechapel property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should we upgrade to a full structural survey when investing in a dilapidated forties property near Whitechapel over a HomeBuyer Report?

Recurrently still called the Full Structural Survey by many home buyers, this survey is now defunct and and has been superseded by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. When buying an altered Whitechapel home, for example a property in poor condition house, it is now the most suitable home survey. It outlines crucial insight about the homes construction and uses and any important technical details a thorough inspection of any accessible parts of the house. External buildings (if permanent) will also be inspected.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the house surveyor inquire into signs of flooding damage?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: BBC News), and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for homes in flood-risk areas. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. The HomeBuyer Report may also, where appropriate, advise on needed maintenance.Less expensive preventative measures include air brick covers, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

No flood warnings were found for Whitechapel, according to the Environment Agency.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be powdery white asbestos sprayed on coatings in the property. What is asbestos, are there any risks, can it be handled easily and Should I be concerned?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous substance. Some types may be in building materials including duct connectors. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to electrical damage qualities and it may be found in insulating board. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to break the asbestos and expert advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos as part of the survey. Your Whitechapel surveyor should note the risk of asbestos during the Whitechapel survey and should suggest experts are consulted.
