HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in East Ham and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the East Ham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the East Ham property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The rat-trap bond walls on this East Ham property needs work. What are the possible consequences?

Brick-constructed houses feature several advantages. However, they can also suffer from diverse problems. These can include weathering or badly applied render. The East Ham surveyor will mention these, with repair advice also supplied. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls. Bennetts Ltd at Acorns Croft/Burnthurst La, Princethorpe, Rugby, CV23 9QA should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01926 633696.

East Ham home purchasers may need to consider that number of styles have been used for centuries. For example, English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a East Ham property with a loft conversion. Which issues relating to the attic will be looked into?

This often causes anxiety for buyers in East Hamwho know how costly roofing work can be. Homes throughout East Ham can be hiding serious difficulties with the roof, for example, dry rot. From fascias to collar beams, all aspects of the roof will be taken into account. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in East Ham, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the house surveyors will look for a range of signs, including holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

The expense of loft insulation, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A East Ham builder can provide an estimate.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there may be a risk of asbestos Artex concealed in the property. Which types of asbestos are a concern and can it be handled easily?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials including Fuse box.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in flooring materials. Technically all forms are deadly and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful not to displace the asbestos and expert advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors cannot test for asbestos during a East Ham building survey. Your surveyor will report on suspected asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.
