HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Redbridge and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Redbridge property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give you comprehensive details of the Redbridge property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Sussex bond brick on this Victorian terrace appears to have several cracks. What are the possible consequences? What impact do Redbridge environmental conditions have?

Brick-constructed flats demonstrate several benefits. However, they can also show signs of various issues and defects. These can include inadequate damp-proofing or crumbling mortar. One frequently reported defect is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs. Just The Brickwork Ltd may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at Unit 8 Westcott Busines Venture Park, Westcott, Aylesbury, HP18 0QD or 01296 433452.

Redbridge home purchasers may need to consider that a good selection of methods and styles can be found across the UK, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Building Surveys on apartments

If buying a dilapidated period apartment home in Redbridge, is it necessary to go for a full structural survey?

Structural surveys are now known Building Surveys. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a post fifties unmodified Redbridge apartment assembled from standard construction materials. The RICS Building Survey is certainly the most suitable survey to opt for the apartment described. Subsequent to a thorough survey of any accessible parts, the RICS surveyors report will be sent to the buyer giving thorough and critical advice concerning the standard of construction and repair of the property. There are certain limitations with any residential survey because a RICS surveyor cannot force or open up the fabric of the Redbridge apartment such as removing roof space contents.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Redbridge. What will we need to investigate when purchasing a house built in around 1760? Will the property's age be a concern?

Many purchasers have looked at purchasing a house with personality, like a cottage. A building's age, however, can often be problematic. Redbridge houses showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Especially for , for example, a Grade II listed house, .

Construction materials, such as matching tiles, may be required. If you have doubts, speak to your building surveyor for further advice.
