HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Newham and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Newham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Newham property's general condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown a property I am hoping to move into, it looked like there is an unsafe electrical system - will the Newham surveyor advise the wiring and fusebox?

When performing a Home Survey in Newham a surveyor should usually comment on the electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. This should include an overview of exposed sections of the wiring as well as things, for example verifying the type of any electrical fittings in shower rooms or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of light fittings and switch gear. .

Examining the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey.

The IEE recommend a Periodic Inspection be completed at least every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about pests. Will the HomeBuyer Report investigate this?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. When purchasing a house, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Treatment for pest problems may include chemical treatment or removal of infected furniture. Your property surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a property in Newham. Will the residence's age be a concern?

Some buyers in Newham would be interested in owning a unique or characterful property. Older construction methods and materials, however, can sometimes be an issue. Newham property employing traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. .

Construction materials, such as original bricks, may also need to be sourced. This can result in higher ongoing expenses.
