HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Chingford Hatch and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

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

If you intend to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Chingford Hatch property's state of repair as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

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

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including commercial refuse. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Risks include structurally instability. Health concerns for example spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

Chingford Hatch surveyors will examine structural problems connected with the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the British Geological database and Waltham Forest Local Authority and advise you .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco regency house in Chingford Hatch.

Stucco is just a specific type of render. Usually it is applied to red brick hardens to an even finish. The effect is highly attractive and is often found on Victorian and Georgian buildings. it can be problematic and Chingford Hatch Homebuyer Reports sometimes show any number of problems e.g. damp trapped behind paint.

Another example of problems can possibly result be when dampness enters below windows that results in large areas of detachment. Fixing Stucco problems may be expensive as renderers are becoming harder to find.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our seller warned us that access to the roof could be hard to organise, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does a chartered surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

Local property in otherwise fine condition can still be subject to roofing problems. From concrete tiles to roof battens, every element of the roof will be considered. Issues can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by amateur repairs.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A builder in Chingford Hatch can provide an estimate.
