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 .

House Prices

I would like to buy a house in E10, being marketed for £296, 976. What things does a surveyor consider when carrying out a RICS valuation ?

There are a huge number of issues which could affect house prices from the legality of extensions to the number and size of bedrooms at the home. It may help to put side by side house prices registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties.

The average house price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £270, 476, which is £26, 500 less than the amount you are paying. The house/flat average was £236, 701. 8, Matlock Road, London, Waltham Forest, Greater London, E10 6BW a semi detached property sold for £317, 000 .

The most accurate way for home buyers to get an independent house valued is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as a core component.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What advice would you give for a house with rat-trap bond walls?

Brick-constructed residential property in Leyton feature several advantages over stone-built property, but they can also be affected by various issues and defects. These can include frost damaged pointing or badly applied render. These issues will be mentioned in the report, with solutions or likely results if they are not resolved. A problem regularly identified is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs. West Brickwork may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 3 Noel Rise, Burgess Hill, RH15 8BW or 01444 242810.

A great deal of variety of brick building have been used across the country for centuries. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume. .

The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations create issues for Leyton property? Does a Leyton Home Survey discuss soil composition the report, and what defects will be reported on?

Factors from damp to heavy rainfall can cause high maintenance costs for a house-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of several issues, with subsidence being a common example. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! Steps like ensuring that the ground level declines away from the house can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
