HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Homerton and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Homerton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Homerton property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

We are would like to purchasing a flat near Homerton (E9). The vendor is asking £247, 996. What things will a qualified RICS surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Homerton on a RICS valuation ?

Any number of issues that can affect property values for example the amount of ground rent or the status of the central heating. It may help to put side by side the prices of flat recorded in Homerton for comparable properties. The average flat price registered between July and October in 2012 was £244, 496, which is £3, 500 less than the selling price. The average for houses and flats was £279, 688. 28, Humberton Close, London, Hackney, Greater London, E9 5TW a leasehold flat recently sold for £245, 000 .

The most accurate way for you to get a formal property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service. A local surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a 17th Century barn conversion. What should be budgeted for maintenance?

Use of traditional methods can be problematic, and Homerton property employing traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of , for example, a Grade II listed house. If you plan to make alterations to a period structure, discuss options with the property surveyor for more detail.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a 1970-built apartment in Homerton and saw evidence of cracks along one external wall. Is this a major danger, and what subsidence-related matters will the RICS Surveyor examine?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a structure which compromises its structural integrity. Most structures experience minor cracking which will not affect the building's structure, especially new homes or recent extensions or major alterations. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed moisture accumulates below ground level. This may result in the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

In some cases, subsidence or movement is challenging to identify because some of the signs could comfortably be as the result of several factors. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Peat is normally stable when sat below the water table, but if the soil dries, this organic matter will decompose. This will cause the soil beneath and around the foundations to collapse.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Maple, lime and horse chestnut trees should planted no closer than 20m to the property itself. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. As an alternative to underpinning, piling, or mini-piling, uses concrete or steel poles that are driven down into more stable soil, to stop further movement. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.
