HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in New Wanstead and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the New Wanstead property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the New Wanstead property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A neighbour said that mould had been a concern, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. Will access to the roof be an issue?

This is a common concern for New Wanstead home buyers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many residential properties can often hide difficulties with the roof. From wind braces to decking, many parts of the roof and loft should be investigated. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

An expensive quote for roofing jobs (such as loft insulation) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work.

In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a converted cow-house. What effect will the property's age have on upkeep?

Some buyers have looked at purchasing a home with character. A building's age, however, can be problematic. New Wanstead property showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Construction materials, such as matching stone or wood, . Discuss this with your RICS surveyor for further advice.

Conservatory

On a New Wanstead HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of Condition rating 3 defects impacting 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

For a New Wanstead residential property, one issue is a sagging conservatory floor surface. This section covers conservatories and porches. The type and condition of these parts will also be mentioned in the report. Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention.
