HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in West Ham and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the West Ham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the West Ham property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled house. What should we look in to, and what does the survey cover?

There is a broad range of defects and issues associated with stone-built property, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in West Ham are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

House Prices

There is a property in E15 in West Ham on with a local agent for £291, 400. What things will a surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in West Ham ?

There is a vast array of things that might affect the price of property such as the existence of damp or whether it is near the coast or has a coastal view. It is useful to put side by side house values achieved in West Ham at the same time for comparable properties.

This means house prices recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £279, 200, which is £12, 200 less than the price you are intending to pay. The average factoring in houses and flats was £259, 838. 38, Geere Road, London, Newham, Greater London, E15 3PN a semi detached house sold for £250, 000 .

The best way to get a formal house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as a core component. A qualified RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get brick repair advice for the West Ham property we are buying? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-built West Ham homes do benefit from many advantages. Unfortunately, they also indicate several common problems, such as sulphate expansion. For instance, extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork and should be taken very seriously.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Ability Builders at 25 Calvert Terr, Murton, Seaham, SR7 9QF on 07708 667384.

West Ham home purchasers may need to consider that great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture are found in many homes built in this country. For instance, stretcher bond, the most ubiquitous across England and Wales. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.
