HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Poplar and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Poplar property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Poplar property's general condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the building I want to lease it looked like there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system; will a Poplar survey advise on the electrical system?

When conducting a Poplar Building Survey your RICS surveyor will usually comment on the overall electrical system if it appears that the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair. A Surveyor will also give detail on concerns such as the state of residual circuit breakers (RCD). Inspecting the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the survey.

House Prices

There is a flat in E14 - Poplar for £303, 136. What factors will qualified RICS surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Poplar ?

Any number of issues that can affect the price of property for example the number of bedrooms or whether the property is on an adopted road. It often helps to compare with the prices of flat achieved in Poplar at the same time for comparable properties. The average flat price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £291, 236 - £11, 900 less than £303, 136. The average factoring in houses and flats was £299, 937. Oban House, Flat 22, Oban Street, London, Tower Hamlets, Greater London, E14 0JB recently sold for £167, 995 .

The most reliable way for you to get an accurate and professional house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as part of the service. Your qualified RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

A local surveyor should make a site visit to the building as well as factoring in all other location related influences that have a bearing on the value of property.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a 17th Century cottage. What should be budgeted for upkeep?

Some purchasers would be interested in owning a home with character. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can concern buyers, and Structures showcasing traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for Grade I listed property, Traditional materials may be required. This may make asking the seller for more detail about their current maintenance regime a good idea. If the property you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact your Poplar surveyor for more information.
