What Home Survey is the right choice for my planned house purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Shoreditch

    The RICS Homebuyer Report should be selected if planning to buy a home built from standard materials i.e. brick & tile, not dilapidated and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Shoreditch

    A Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Shoreditch) will also be carried out by a MRICS or FRICS surveyor but is more thorough. Opt for this for non standard e.g. stone slab roof homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Shoreditch

    This is an independent valuation . This report is usually chosen by mortgage free buyers or anyone requiring a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Shoreditch and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Shoreditch property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Shoreditch property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should we commission the full structural survey when looking into a defective period cottage in Shoreditch as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Very Often, and incorrectly, called a Full Structural Survey by many home buyers, this survey is now defunct and and this most technical survey has been superseded by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. Plump for a Building Survey if you are planning to buy the house described. A HomeBuyer Report will suffice for a post fifties unmodified Shoreditch property built out of standard building materials.

Bear in mind that certain limitations exist with a Building Survey because a chartered surveyor wont be able to force or open up the structure of the property nor can he/she assess the serviceability of energy sources.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a property next to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: commercial waste material disposal. No one ideally wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns might include complex organic chemicals. Potential health issues such as gut problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveys in Shoreditch will consider structural defects connected with the landfill. Your lawyer will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as Hackney Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Conservation area

Will there be any problems I would be advised to consider if planning to buy a converted flat in Shoreditch near a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by local councils.

Home Buyers Surveys in Shoreditch must possess sufficient knowledge of local area factors and any connection they have with the building and its value. Property Prices will be inflated owing to the areas being in good order. However many areas are falling into disrepair e.g. the removal front garden walls

Surveyors are expected report if the house might be in a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are carried out during the legal process. Unapproved developments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be advised but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.
