HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Cricklewood and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Cricklewood property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Cricklewood property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should we choose a full structural survey if purchasing a un-loved forties townhouse near Cricklewood over a HomeBuyer Report?

Conventionally (incorrectly) called the Structural Survey by some, it is no longer available and has been given a new name by RICS and the right name is now the Building Survey. You should choose the Building Survey in relation to the house described. The HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a mid century or later unmodified house built out of typical construction materials and methods.

There are a number caveats are integral with a Building Survey as your surveyor cannot, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the structure of the property nor can they assess serviceability of a boiler.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our surveyor check for signs of water damage?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: The Independent), and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

According to the Environment Agency, no flood warnings were found for Cricklewood.

Gas flame

Does the local surveyor check out the safety of the gas installations?

The chartered surveyor will visually survey any accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as whether the meter is in an escape route for instance, as well as gas connected appliances such as balanced flues. Any fittings won't however be taken off. Gas can be deadly and if there are any concerns about gas, call a gas safe engineer.
