Which Property Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Ilford

    A RICS Homebuyer Report should be chosen when buying a home constructed from conventional materials such as brick & tile, not dilapidated and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Ilford

    The Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Ilford) will also be conducted by a MRICS or FRICS surveyor but is more comprehensive. Opt for this survey for unconventional e.g. stone buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Ilford

    This is an independent chartered surveyor valuation of the property. This report is often chosen by cash purchasers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Ilford and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Ilford property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Ilford property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Ilford Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco Victorian home in Ilford that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really a kind of smooth render. Usually stucco is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth stone like surface. The coating is highly appealing and is often found on Victorian and Regency houses. Stucco is very like plaster and mortar to apply. Stucco is often problematic and Ilford surveyors frequently reveal issues for instance when it is faced with driving rain which gets perma-saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems could result from the difficulty is testing for damp underneath. Re-covering problems can be surprisingly expensive as skilled tradesmen are becoming harder to find.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Do I need to get a full structural survey prior to investing in an abandoned, period garden maisonette in Ilford?

Building Survey is now the correct term for the Structural Survey following its renaming in 2010 by RICS. Go for a Building Survey for the maisonette referred to. The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a non period Ilford maisonette assembled from typical construction materials.

There are several limitations exist with any survey as a RICS surveyor is not in a position to force or open up the fabric of the maisonette or inspect where doing so could cause damage to the house.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Ilford structure with a loft conversion, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Which issues relating to the roof of the structure will be checked during the survey?

This is a common concern for purchasers who know how costly roofing work can be. Houses across Ilford could unfortunately be experiencing damage to the roof. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from wind braces to decking. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Ilford, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the building surveyors will look for a range of signs, including a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

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. A Ilford roofing contractor can provide an estimate.
