HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Falconwood and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Falconwood property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Falconwood property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Falconwood Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the mid-century home we are hoping to buy we noticed that there was some evidence of an overload of the fuses - will the surveyor go into detail on the electrics?

When performing a Home Survey in Falconwood the RICS surveyor should report on the overall electrical system if it is obvious that they are in an unsatisfactory condition. This will include a non invasive inspection of any uncovered areas of the wiring as well as areas e.g. verifying the state of the fixed appliances e.g. water heaters. Inspecting the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property should be part of the survey.

Confirming the existence of any documentation from the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician on the property being surveyed will form part of the survey in Falconwood .

Building Surveys on houses

Do we need to opt for the full structural survey when considering a shabby period property in Falconwood rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Periodically described as a Structural Survey by house buyers, it is no longer offered has actually been reclassified by RICS and the correct term is now the Building Survey. You should choose a Building Survey for the house you are thinking of buying. A HomeBuyer Report is enough if buying a post 1950s unmodified property assembled from normal construction materials and methods. Be aware that certain limitations exist with any residential survey - your local Falconwood surveyor cannot force or open up the structure of the house of assess heating installations.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need London brick upkeep guidance, can a property surveyor in Falconwood help? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-built Falconwood homes demonstrate several benefits. Unfortunately, they also be subject to several common problems, ranging from sulphate expansion to weathering. Such defects will be discussed in the report, with feedback. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Connolly D of 249 South Park Drive, Ilford, IG3 9AL on 020 8599 2080.

Falconwood home purchasers may need to consider that a selection of different courses and brick making techniques may be found throughout England and Wales, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
