HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Goodmayes and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Goodmayes property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Goodmayes property's general condition along with an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor look into the condition or the safety of the gas supply?

The qualified RICS surveyor will visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at whether the meter is in an escape route at the property, as well as gas connected gas fittings in the home for example - ventilation of flue (if blocked). The Goodmayes qualified RICS surveyor will not remove the gas fittings and he or she won't run any tests on the functionality of the gas system. Gas can be unsafe, should you have any concerns about gas, call a gas engineer.

Gas regulations stipulate landlords are legally required to complete appliance and installation inspections every year and punishments for failure to comply are severe .

Conservation area

Will there be any issues we would need to check out when intending to buy a converted house in Goodmayes near a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by the local authority. Goodmayes surveyors must possess relevant knowledge of relevant local considerations and any effect may have on the building and its value. House prices are generally higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to conservation areas being preserved. However a large number are falling into a state of neglect e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

RICS surveyors are trained to tell you whether the property is or might be in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will suggest additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by your solicitor. Out of keeping changes that do not have Local Authority approval may also be advised but these are really more a investigated by the lawyer.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our property surveyor investigate signs of flooding damage?

Flooding in Goodmayes can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and owning a house in Goodmayes in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments. The survey report may also, where appropriate, offer advice to limit damage in the event of flooding. The survey report will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor or agent, but this information may not be accurate.
