HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in North East London and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the North East London property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will offer comprehensive details of the North East London property's condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a property in North East London and noticed wall cracks in the kitchen, could this be evidence of subsidence? Is this a serious risk, and what solutions are to available to remedy this?

Subsidence is movement in a structure's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be resolved. Less common than subsidence, but which can be as damaging to a home, heave occurs when the ground is forced up rather than down.

Cracks that appear without warning may be a strong indication of subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include rippling wallpaper that isn't caused by dampness.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there is a concern of loose asbestos in the home. What is asbestos, can it be easily dealt with and what does the surveyor do?

Homes constructed earlier than around 1985 will probably conceal some materials containing asbestos. Asbestos is a noxious fibrous structured mineral. Some types may be in building materials including powdery sprayed on coatings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in soffit boards. The main origins of asbestos were Canada.

All forms are deadly and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to breathing in a solitary fibre is not deadly.

If discovered, one must be careful never to disturb the asbestos and expert advice must be taken without delay. Getting rid of asbestos is expensive must always be conducted by professionals. Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will report on potential asbestos during the North East London survey and will advise accordingly.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in North East London and are looking for property built from brick walls. What suggestions can a North East London surveyor make? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick-constructed buildings feature several advantages. However, they can also be affected by numerous defects. The surveyor should report on these, with repair advice also supplied.

A defect often found is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. Lionstar Brickwork Ltd may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 5 Betony Rd, Romford, RM3 8EP or 01708 370858.

Brick-build property feature in construction throughout North East London, leading to a selection of different courses and brick making techniques. Consider renegotiating the price of the North East London property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.
