HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Isle Of Dogs and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Isle Of Dogs property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you comprehensive details of the Isle Of Dogs property's state of repair in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and what does it include?

Homebuyer Reports include an impartial valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost as a standard part of the survey. To fully consider the value of the property the valuer will combine in depth understanding of the Isle Of Dogs market and other things about the property e.g. general condition. Your Isle Of Dogs surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and use key assumptions like there being no major problems. Surveyors ignore certain things like furnishings. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there is an absence of any impossible to rectify legal issues such as access to the property over estate roadways. Advice should be sought from your solicitor.

Further area assumptions like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any environmental problems like the area being prone to flooding, which will also be factored in. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there could be asbestos textured coatings being found in property. Why would there be asbestos, is it dangerous, can it be remedied and What should I do?

Asbestos is a harmful substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials such as fireplace. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance properties, it may be found in fire doors. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately dangerous and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken never to disturb it and expert advice must be taken ASAP.

Isle Of Dogs Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a Isle Of Dogs HomeBuyer report. They will report on the risk of asbestos and will recommend professional testing.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a warehouse conversion. What consequences will the age have on maintenance?

For houses in Isle Of Dogs built before the 20th Century, age can sometimes be an issue. Structures built with traditional methods can be expensive to maintain. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced.
