HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Beacontree Heath and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Beacontree Heath property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Beacontree Heath property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of if buying a home proximate to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: commercial waste material. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns might include hazardous chemicals .

Surveyors will flag up any structural problems connected with the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database and Barking and Dagenham Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Building Surveys on houses

I don't get the reason to upgrade to the full structural survey when looking into a derelict mid terrace home in Beacontree Heath as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Often called the Full Structural Survey by many, this survey is now defunct and and has been reclassified by RICS and the correct name is now the Building Survey. Opt for a RICS Building Survey for the house you describe. The HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a mid 20th century of later unmodified Beacontree Heath house assembled from standard construction materials and methods. Bear in mind that certain limitations exist with any survey as a chartered surveyor cannot open up the structure of the house for example, or comment on efficiency of gas installations.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? How could this affect the property, and what possible solutions are to available to fix this?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a building which compromises its structural integrity. Most buildings experience some minor cracking, particularly new-build properties or those with a recent extension In some older buildings cracks appear in Summer[ that close up in the winter] when the materials contract, absorbing more moisture.

Cracks are a clear suggestion of subsidence, but they may be harmless. In extreme temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence, but this is not generally an issue in the UK.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.
