HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Bounds Green and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Bounds Green property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Bounds Green property's state of repair in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will an infestation affect the purchase price of a property in Bounds Green - Should we get a property surveyor?

Houses are not usually impacted by serious cases of vermin, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. An affected property may not always be easy to identify.

For example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take.RICS guidelines on the issue of vermin are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your property surveyor.

Deteriorated timber

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Bounds Green, what are common defects Condition rating 3 impacting joinery and finishes?

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. As buyers in Bounds Green are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Red, amber and green ratings give house buyers indicate the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Severe defects impacting the Bounds Green home are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. Such issues can have a significant impact on a home's value. This section includes visual aspects of the roof, checked with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Fascias, soffits and eaves will be investigated. Clay tile vents which are missing or ineffective is an example.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a home in Bounds Green and spotted cracks down the gable wall. What can be done to remedy subsidence if subsidence is found during the Home Buyers Survey?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a structure, but some degree of movement will always occur. New builds, for example, will need to settle under their own weight. In addition, some homes in Bounds Green are built with a variety of materials. These will contract at different rates.

Subsidence can result from several issues, some common throughout Bounds Green. Collapsed mains pipes can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This may be referred to as groundwater subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include doors and windows that are more difficult to open.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.
