HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Harold Wood and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Harold Wood property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications on the Harold Wood property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Harold Wood property's state of repair as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when purchasing a building in the region a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. non-hazardous rubbish. No one wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries might include hazardous chemicals .

Surveyors will notice any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the Landmark databases as well as Havering Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Harold Wood, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. Which issues relating to the attic will be checked?

Harold Wood properties that are otherwise ideal may be exposed to roofing woes, like damp. From the concrete tiles to the parapet walls, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of amateur repairs.

Upkeep need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing contractor in the local area can provide one. Speak to D & R Roofing of 20 Woodlands Rd, Harold Wood, Romford, RM3 0QX on 01708 370729 for an estimate.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I need to check out when purchasing a flat in Harold Wood inside a conservation area?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Harold Wood must possess relevant knowledge of local area factors and the connection they have with the property. Property values is typically more than prices outside the area which is down to them being preserved. However many conservation areas have fallen into shoddy condition e.g. badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

RICS surveyors are expected tell you whether the property looks like it may be within a conservation area and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are carried out by your conveyancer. Unapproved developments to the property will also be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer.
