HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Dollis Hill and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Dollis Hill property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Dollis Hill property's condition along with information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

In a Dollis Hill HomeBuyer Report, what might a Condition rating 3 mean for roof coverings?

Severe defects impacting the house or flat are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the Dollis Hill residence's construction. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. The structured format for the HomeBuyer Report is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any buyers in Dollis Hill. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property.

Roof coverings are comprehensively checked, provided that access is possible. An old, worn out asphalt roof is one example.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a concern of asbestos boilers present in property. What is asbestos and does the surveyor look at this?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials including cooker insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in stove insulation. Technically all forms are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken not to displace the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Your Dollis Hill surveyor should report on suspected asbestos and should offer advice.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled homes create issues for residents? Which potential issues should we consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Golconda Dolomitic Limestone to Hopton Wood Limestone. Issues including stone faces affect many stone-walled Dollis Hill properties. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. This external aspect will usually be supported by a rubble or brick wall. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as replacing missing or badly worn stones. If you are planning to renovate, consider that the British Geological Survey's GeoReport includes a stone matching service. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.
