HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Upminster and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Upminster property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does offer comprehensive details of the Upminster property's general condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should I do a full structural survey if buying a extended sixties property near Upminster as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Frequently described as a Full Structural Survey by many home buyers, it is now defunct and and this most technical survey has been replaced by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the proper name is now the Building Survey. When contemplating the buying of an altered Upminster house, for example a neglected house, it is the best choice. It outlines thorough and crucial details on the Houses state of repair on top of any defects, shortly after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the house.

There will be several limitations with any survey as a RICS surveyor is not in a position to open up the fabric of the of the Upminster house e.g. removing loft contents.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about if buying a home near to Gerpins Lane, Upminster on Gerpins Lane and landfill sites generally

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: industrial waste material. A huge number of sites affect many thousands of people in England including Upminster. Concerns include chemicals like dioxins .

Upminster surveyors will examine any structural defects linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as Havering Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Damage resulting from flooding

We're intending to purchase in Upminster. Is there a flood risk, and will the house surveyor search for signs of flood damage?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: Channel 4 News), and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. The Environment Agency maintain a flood alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. An awareness of characteristics of the Upminster area likely to affect the property also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The surveyor may ask the estate agent if the property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Near Upminster, the River Ingrebourne at Hornchurch including Upminster and Rainham status was recently updated by the Environment Agency.
