HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in East London and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the East London property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the East London property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

A local surveyor will visually check any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the location of the meter as part of the East London survey, as well as gas affiliated fixtures like fixed external ventilation hearths. However, the East London qualified surveyor will not remove the gas fittings and will not carry out any tests of any kind on the appliances or system. Of course, gas is potentially hazardous and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Building Surveys on houses

If buying an abandoned regency terraced property, is it necessary to get a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey is now reclassified as the Building Survey. If contemplating the buying of an altered home e.g. a dilapidated house in East London, Building Survey is the most appropriate property survey to go for.

There are one or two limitations with a property survey as a chartered surveyor will not be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the fabric of the of the East London house, an example being the removing loft contents.
