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 .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a structure with a converted attic in Poplar - What does a Poplar house surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

This often causes anxiety for Poplar buyers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many homes can be blighted by issues with the roof. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the sheathing to the collar beams. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a poor asphalt covering.

The expense of insulating the attic, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A local roofing specialist with solid references should be able to assist with a quote.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns I would need to check out if buying a converted flat in Poplar in a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by the local council.

A Building Surveyors need to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local factors and any bearing may have on the home and its value. The price of property is typically higher which is down to the areas resisting change. However a growing number have fallen into a state for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors are expected inform you if the home is/might be within a conservation area and Section I of a Poplar Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are raised as part of the legal process. Out of keeping developments to the property should be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by your legal representative.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Surveyor be looking for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Poplar that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact a type of render. Usually stucco is applied to underlying red brick hardens to a smooth and attractive finish. The effect is very beautiful and is found on Victorian and Regency houses. it can be prone to defect and Poplar Building Surveys commonly discover any number of problems such as water trapped behind paint. Other potential problems could be when moisture under windows which results in the render detaching. Re-covering problems with stucco may be dear as skilled tradesmen are getting harder to find.
