HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Leytonstone and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Leytonstone property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Leytonstone property's condition as well as advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I would need to look out for if purchasing a building in Leytonstone near a conservation area?

There are thousands official conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Leytonstone must have knowledge of relevant local area issues and any relation may have with the property. The price of property is, more often than not, more than prices outside the area which is down to conservation areas being in their original state. However a growing number are falling into a state for example - the huge increase in street clutter

RICS surveyors will report whether the building is/might be classified as such and Section I of the Leytonstone Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are conducted during the conveyancing process. Out of keeping developments to the property may be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by your lawyer.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are intending to buy a ground floor flat in Leytonstone, does the chartered surveyor investigate signs of flood damage, or if other properties have been affected?

A wide variety of factors can cause flood damage, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and home buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. It is strongly recommended that the property is protected, before flooding begins, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the home or on adjacent sites. The house surveyor will usually recommend that the home buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

According to the Environment Agency, no flood warnings were found for Leytonstone.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Leytonstone and are looking for a 20s property built with rat-trap bond walls. What directions can a Leytonstone property surveyor offer?

Brick-built Leytonstone buildings do benefit from many advantages over structures built with irregular stone. Unfortunately, they also be affected by both minor and serious issues. This could be anything from sulphate attack to weathering. Your surveyor in Leytonstone should report on these, with advice on the consequences were they to go untreated. An especially severe issue is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. Dax Brickwork Contractors Ltd should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01634 686855 or 11b/Sherwood House/Walderslade Centre/Walderslade Rd, Chatham, ME5 9UD.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern.

If the Leytonstone surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
