HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Hale End and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Hale End property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Hale End property's general condition along with advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about vermin. What can we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value. An affected building may not always be easy to identify.

For example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take. The Hale End surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco Victorian house in Hale End.

Stucco is in fact just dense render. Usually stucco is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. It is very appealing and was found on Victorian buildings. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors can discover issues such as damp trapped under paint. Other issues may be when water beneath sills that causes detachment. Re-applying Stucco problems can be difficult as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls I would need to check on when intending to buy a home in Hale End inside a conservation area?

There are many thousands official conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by local councils. Your surveyor need to have relevant knowledge of relevant local issues and any connection they have with the home. Property Prices will probably be more than prices outside the area which is down to the areas being preserved. However many conservation areas are falling into poor condition for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors are trained to inform you whether the location looks to be is so classified and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are raised by your solicitor. Unsympathetic extensions to the property will also be reported, however these should be concern for your legal representative. Verbatim Property Lawyers are based in, Waltham Forest, London, IG8 0XE will be able to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 020 8506 0040
