HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Colney Hatch and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Colney Hatch property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Colney Hatch property's condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the home we want to move into, the agent said that there was no RCD on the fuse board , does a Homebuyer Report in Colney Hatch write anything on electrical defects?

When preparing a Building Survey in Colney Hatch the home surveyor should remark on the condition of the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsafe condition. This should include a general inspection of any revealed parts of the wiring and other potential areas for concern such as ascertaining any outside installations such as power in garages or any external sockets.

Confirming the existence of any documents from the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician on the property being surveyed should usually be part of the survey. Inspecting any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey.

We are concerned about pests. What can we do?

Colney Hatch home buyers should know that is not a requirement that a seller to disclose a vermin problem. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. The chartered surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP. If you require more information, contact a local firm, like Rentokil Initial UK Ltd (London) (North), Unit 4 Finchley Ind Centre, 879 High Road, North Finchley, London (North), N12 8QA, or call them on 0800 917 1987.
