HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Stepney and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

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

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Stepney property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered house in Stepney that I intend to purchase.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is just a kind of render. Typically stucco is layered over brick to form an even finish. The finish is very appealing and is was often applied to Regency houses. Stucco is often problematic and Stepney Home Buyers Suveys commonly detail potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance dampness trapped behind paint coatings. Other potential problems might be when water enters under DPCs which results in detachment. Resolving Stucco problems can be expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to purchase the full structural survey when considering a extended Edwardian townhouse in Stepney over a HomeBuyer Report?

Very Often described as a Full Structural Survey by many, it is no longer available and this most technical survey has been re-titled by RICS and the correct term is now the Building Survey. If you are buying an altered Stepney home e.g. a tatty house - the Building Survey is now the most suitable survey. It specifies comprehensive and frequently critical insight about the property's construction materials along with any defects, shortly after a thorough inspection. There are several limitations with any survey insofar as a qualified RICS surveyor wont be able to (unless safe to do so) open up the fabric of the of the Stepney house e.g. removing roof space contents. Permanent external structures or buildings will also be inspected.

Conservation area

Are there any problems I would need to consider if planning to buy a property in Stepney in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by the local council. Surveyors in Stepney must have knowledge of local considerations and the relation may have on the building and its value. House prices tends to be greater because of the areas being in their original state. However many areas are falling into poor condition e.g. out of keeping extensions

RICS surveyors are expected note if the property looks to be so designated and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are raised by your conveyancer. Unconsented adjustments to the building should be advised in your survey, however these should be investigated by the solicitor.
