HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Clerkenwell and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Clerkenwell property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Clerkenwell property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Clerkenwell RICS surveyor inquire into any flooding damage?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Clerkenwell Clerkenwell house is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses and flats in flood-risk areas. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, advise on needed maintenance.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a house lies within an area of potential or previous

flood risk. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the occupier, but this information may not be accurate.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will insects affect the purchase price of a property in Clerkenwell - What should we do?

Purchasers should know that is not a requirement that a seller to disclose a vermin problem. This concern should be taken seriously.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies to vermin can include professional cleaning or removal of infected furniture.RICS guidelines on the issue of infestations are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your property surveyor.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact may wet weather have on our new home in Clerkenwell? Also, if there is necessary work, will they be expensive to fix?

I find it odd that this issue is not given the attention it deserves by purchasers. One indication that gutters are at risk is rotten roofing elements. Poor drainage can lead to overflowing or blocked sewage.

Luckily, problems with drains are quite easy to remedy. However, if the drains are left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
