HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Beckton property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Beckton property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will my Property Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Beckton which we wish to buy.

Stucco is actually a sort of flat finish render. Usually stucco is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) that sets to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. Stucco is very attractive and is found on Victorian buildings. Stucco is often prone to defect and Beckton Home Buyers Suveys can reveal potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance damp trapped beneath paint coatings

Another example of problems associated with stucco might be when water beneath DPCs that causes the render detaching. Re-coating problems with stucco may be dear as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a Beckton property built Ham Hill stone. Are there any related issues that need to be investigated, and what does the survey cover?

Buyers of a Grade I listed building should consider that upkeep respects the original fabric of the property. These restrictions are often rigorously enforced. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Beckton are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Beckton should be able to supply local stone.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the thirties house I am intending to acquire, it appeared that there was no RCD on the fuse board , does a the Beckton surveyor report on the wiring and fusebox?

When performing a Beckton Building Survey a surveyor will usually report on the condition of the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. This will include a non invasive inspection (without removing any fittings) of the open areas of the wiring as well as concerns such as examining the state of any fixed electrical appliances e.g. water heaters or checking the condition of visible wiring. A check for the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the Homebuyer report in Beckton.
