HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Silvertown and which one would be cheaper?

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

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

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Silvertown property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My partner spotted signs of vermin in the bathroom - Is a HomeBuyer Report advisable?

Pests like bed bugs may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Silvertown. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. Signs may not be obvious, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Treatment for pest problems may include removal or excision of affected timber. Your home surveyor may report on signs of infestation.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there might be asbestos walls being found in the home. What is asbestos and can it be easily dealt with?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous substance. Some types are found in the building materials e.g. paper lining. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in painted over ceilings for example.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to displace asbestos. Professional advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Silvertown HomeBuyer report. Your surveyor will note possible asbestos and should recommend professional testing.

Building Surveys on houses

Shall I do the full structural survey when considering a extended regency cottage in Silvertown as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Conventionally referred to as a Structural Survey by many home buyers, this survey is no longer available as it has been re-titled by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the correct name is now the Building Survey. Select the Building Survey for the house you mention. The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a post fifties unmodified house of normal construction materials. There are a few caveats exist with any survey - a local Silvertown surveyor cannot open up the structure of the property nor can they assess heating installations.
