HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Chadwell Heath and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Chadwell Heath property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Chadwell Heath property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there might be an asbestos tank in the flat. Why would there be asbestos and can it be treated?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials including boards around radiators.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good sound absorption properties, it may be found in artex. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately pernicious and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken not to move the asbestos and expert advice should be sought ASAP. You should not try to remove it yourself. Chadwell Heath

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos during a Chadwell Heath building survey. Surveyors will report on suspected asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a flat close to a landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including domestic waste. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns might include hazardous chemicals .

Homebuyer reports in Chadwell Heath will flag up structural problems linked to the landfill. Your legal representative will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological databases in addition to Redbridge Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Chadwell Heath home and am quite worried that there is a danger of subsidence. Will a House Survey look into this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home will have an impact. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Chadwell Heath home's foundations, forcing them inward. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
