HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Leyton and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

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

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Leyton property's condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a risk of blue asbestos paper lining in existence at the property. What is asbestos and does the Leyton home survey report on it?

Asbestos is a noxious silicate material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials such as roof gutters.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in powdery sprayed on coatings. Technically all forms are pernicious and might lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to break the asbestos and professional advice should be sought urgently.

Leyton Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will note the risk of asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.

Conservation area

Are there any things I would need to consider if buying a property in Leyton inside a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by the local council. Leyton surveyors need to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local area factors and the connection they have on the home and its value. Property values is generally greater because of conservation areas being unspoilt. However many areas are falling into a state for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

RICS surveyors can be expected to report if the house is or might be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Leyton Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are carried out during the conveyancing process. Unconsented extensions that do not have Local Authority approval may also be noted, however these should be investigated by the lawyer. Murdochs are a local firm situated at 45 High Street, Waltham Forest, London, E11 2AA might be prepared to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 020 8530 7291

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect can rainfall have on a house in Leyton? Can damaged guttering decrease our property's value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, this issue is rarely considered properly by purchasers. If you have only seen the house you are buying in the Summer, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that rainwater goods are under performing include rotten roofing elements. This can lead to collapsed drains or overflowing septic tank.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy, unless they are left untreated. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
