Which Home Buyers Survey is the right choice?

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice if planning to buy a property built from standard materials such as brick & tile, in reasonable repair and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    A Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Camden) is also conducted by a MRICS/FRICS qualified surveyor but is more exhaustive. Choose this option when buying a non standard e.g. architecturally unusual buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Camden and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Camden property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Camden property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am buying a converted barn in Camden. What should be budgeted for upkeep?

Vernacular architecture can create issues for homeowners. Camden property built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to maintain. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The person in the flat below warned us that access to the home's roof could be something to worry about - What advice would the property surveyor give in their report?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors. Houses across Camden could feature issues with the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. clay tiles. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of amateur repairs.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable local contractor. Contact Capital Roofing of 108A St. Pancras Way, London, NW1 9NB on 0800-634 5032 for a quote.

Gas flame

Will a local surveyor report on the safety of the gas supply?

The chartered surveyor will locate and visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect whether the meter is in an escape route as part of the survey, as well as gas related appliances for example - associated asbestos. Any external fittings won't actually be undone. Most people are aware that gas can be dangerous, if you have any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

The regulations require that all landlords are obligated to complete appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply are severe .
