HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Blackwall property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Blackwall property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Blackwall Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Chimney stacks

On a Blackwall HomeBuyer Report what does 'E1' refer to?

They are visually reviewed from ground level where appropriate. An apartment may not need such an inspection. No chimney liner is one defect applicable to this section.

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property.

Building Surveys on houses

Should we conduct the full structural survey when looking into a defective forties house in Blackwall over a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes and incorrectly described as a Structural Survey by many, this survey is no longer available as it has been renamed by RICS and the correct name is now the Building Survey. If you are looking into purchasing an unconventional property e.g. an unloved Blackwall house - it is now the best choice of home survey to complete. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice if buying a 60 year old or less unmodified house of typical construction materials i.e. brick/tile.

Typically a couple of days after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, the surveyor's formal report is emailed (pdf format) and posted to you specifying in depth and significant professional advice concerning the construction materials used on the home. There are a few limitations with any survey as a chartered surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the Blackwall house, an example being the removing secured hatches. The following article for a simple guide on survey specifics.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 19th Century dovecot. Will the home's age be a concern?

Older construction methods and materials can create issues for homeowners. Blackwall houses built with traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property. This may increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey. If you have doubts, speak to the RICS surveyor for more detail.
