HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in East Beckton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the East Beckton property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will give a thorough analysis of the East Beckton property's condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of if buying a property close to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. hazardous rubbish. Nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns include structurally instability .

Surveys in East Beckton will examine structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as Greenwich Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in East Beckton? Could it affect the property value?

Regular rainfall is common in East Beckton and across the country, but the effect which high levels of rainfall has on a house is ignored. Signs that drainage are under performing include damp stains around drainage, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Fortunately, drainage problems are generally easy to remedy. However, if the drains are not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Damaged Render

What will a RICS Surveyor consider on a spar dash rendered (stucco) Victorian home in East Beckton.

Stucco is actually a kind of smooth solid render. Normally it is layered over brick that dries to a very smooth surface. The effect is highly beautiful and was often found on Victorian homes. it can be problematic and East Beckton surveyors can highlight issues for instance damp trapped beneath paint which cannot escape leading to worsening damp issues. Other issues might be when dampness enters under DPCs which causes the render detaching. Re-coating Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.
