HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Wanstead Flats property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Wanstead Flats property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about vermin in the Wanstead Flats property we plan to buy. How do we investigate further?

Scare stories about home vermin are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as ants as minor annoyances. Signs may not be obvious. As an example, woodworm can be extremely destructive, but fortunately their 'tunnels' in timber and wood furniture are usually quite easy to spot. Remedies to an infestation

can include destruction of tainted materials.RICS guidelines on the issue of vermin are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your Wanstead Flats surveyor.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying an older warehouse conversion in Wanstead Flats. What consequences will the residence's timber frame have on maintenance?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can worry purchasers, and Properties built using traditional methods can be a chore to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could make the final cost hard to predict.

Gas flame

Will a chartered surveyor report on the condition of the gas supply?

Your qualified surveyor will visually survey the easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) at the home, as well as gas associated fixtures for example - prefabricated flues. The Wanstead Flats RICS surveyor won't remove the external fittings nor will they conduct any tests whatsoever on the serviceability of the system. Gas is potentially unsafe, should you have any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations obligate landlords to conduct appliance and installation inspections yearly. Non compliance penalties are criminal .
