HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Havering and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Havering property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Havering property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed a sixties house I am interested to lease, it appeared that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system - will a Havering Homebuyer Report write anything on the general state of the electrical system?

When performing a Building Survey in Havering the RICS surveyor should usually comment on the condition of the electrics if it is clear that they are in a poor state. This should include an overview or check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of the superficial parts of the wiring on top of possible problems relating to things like inspecting the state of repair of fitted electrical appliances, for example storage heaters or verifying the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Verifying the location of the

evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by an electrician should usually be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) suggest an electrical system check is carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out). For nearby advice from a certified electrician - Select Electrical Services , 190 Wingletye Lane, Hornchurch, RM11 3AL .

Damaged Render

What will your Property Surveyor look for on a stucco regency period home in Havering that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact just a kind of render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick hardens to a smooth and attractive finish. The finish is highly beautiful and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency homes. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is very like plaster. It used to contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to animal fibres to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Havering can detail issues for instance trapped moisture resulting in the surface falling away needing repair. Other issues might be when the application has been taken down to ground level bypassing the DPC. Resolving problems with stucco may be expensive as craftsmen are getting rarer.

Gas flame

Does a Havering surveyor check the serviceability of the gas heaters?

The local surveyor will visually look at the accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the condition of the meter for example, as well as gas related fittings like the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. External covers will not however be taken off. The system won't be tested at all. Most people are aware that gas is potentially deadly, should you have any worries about gas at all, , contact a gas safe engineer.
