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 .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the building we're buying, but we are not certain. What should we do?

Property purchasers in Canvey Island should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem. When purchasing a house, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies.

Treatment for pest problems may include chemical treatment and destruction of tainted materials. If you strongly suspect an issue with dust mites, or any pest, speak to your home surveyor

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it that we consider gutters? Can damaged gutters decrease our property's value?

I find it odd that wet weather and the effect it can have on Canvey Island buildings are rarely considered properly by house purchasers. For example, corroded downspouts strongly suggest that the gutters are a cause for concern.

Luckily, drainage problems are generally easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously.However, the damage caused, where disregarded, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

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.
