HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Chipping Barnet and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Chipping Barnet property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, you should you book a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Chipping Barnet property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Chipping Barnet Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do I need to consider downspouts, and does our house surveyor mention it?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the impact rainfall can have on your property is not given the attention it deserves. For example, flaking or efflorescence on external walls suggest that the drainage systems are under performing. Blocked rainwater goods can result in damp and mould.

Whether buying in Chipping Barnet or elsewhere, difficult drainage systems do not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to repair fairly cheaply. If not unblocked on a regular basis, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a dovecot in Chipping Barnet. Will the residence's age be a concern?

For houses in Chipping Barnet built before the 20th Century, age can create difficulties for an owner. Chipping Barnet structures built using traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. This can result in longer-term maintenance obligations. If you have doubts, speak to your property surveyor for further advice.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when buying a flat proximate to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill take many forms including domestic waste material. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Risks include hazardous chemicals. Health problems like spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

Chipping Barnet surveyors will find any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out conveyancing searches of the Landmark data sets in addition to Enfield Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
