HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Woodford and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Woodford property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Woodford property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this home is located on a flood plain. Is there a major flood risk? Would our surveyor search for any water damage?

Overflowing rivers, rain and insufficient drainage can all result in extensive flooding, and house purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. In addition, the property survey may outline a strategy for flood-related upkeep.An awareness of characteristics of the Woodford area likely to affect the Woodford house also enables the home surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a property survey if the home surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the Woodford house is at risk.

The Environment Agency have updated the status for the The River Roding in Redbridge including Woodford, Wanstead and Ilford, near Woodford, .

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown a sixties house I am meaning to lease, I think we saw that there were damaged electrical sockets, does a the surveyor report on the wiring and fusebox?

When preparing a Home Buyers Survey in Woodford your surveyor will typically mention the overall electrical system if it is apparent that the electrics are in an unsafe state of repair. He or she should also report back on potential areas for concern such as confirming the category of the electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or checking the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Looking at any documents from any recent PIR conducted by an electrician should usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Woodford.

The IEE recommend that a Periodic Inspection is carried out at least every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there may be a danger of asbestos wallpaper present in the flat. What is asbestos and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic material of several naturally occurring materials. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials for example powdery sprayed on coatings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent sound absorption qualities and it may be found in soffit boards.

All forms including white are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to break it and professional advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos as part of the survey. They will report on the risk of asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.
