HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Canvey Island and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Canvey Island property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Canvey Island property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a Canvey Island HomeBuyer Report can you give examples of Condition rating 2 defects affecting 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

Roof coverings, including flat and sloped roofs will be reviewed, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. Splitting of roof elements is an example.

Defects which need some attention are rated 'amber' or condition rating 2. This may not be urgent, however. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, with a minimum of technical jargon. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Canvey Island, what recommendations will a property surveyor in Canvey Island make for a home built from brick?

Canvey Island brick-walled houses can be affected by numerous defects, such as thermal movement. An issue of particular concern is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. Hodgeson M should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 34 Thames Rd, Canvey Island, SS8 0HH or 01268 681836.

Canvey Island home purchasers may need to consider that great deal of variety may be found throughout England and Wales. For example, Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks. Consider renegotiating the price of the Canvey Island property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls we need to be conscious of when purchasing a period property in Canvey Island near a conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas in the UK which are governed by the local council. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have knowledge of relevant local area factors and any relation they have on the home and its value. The price of property is, more often than not, higher owing to them being largely unspoilt However many areas have fallen into poor condition e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Surveyors are expected report if the property might be within a conservation area and Section I of your Canvey Island Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are carried out by your conveyancer. Unsympathetic extensions to the building will also be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.
