HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in East Barnet and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the East Barnet property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give a thorough analysis of the East Barnet property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Will a cottage with stone walls generate lots of maintenance costs? Are there any problems that need to be investigated? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Buyers of a Grade II listed building should consider that they may need to ensure any future repairs are 'sympathetic'. This is monitored by the local council. Issues including delaminated or cracked paintwork affect many stone-walled buildings. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as repointing of loose or crumbling mortar. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to take notice of when purchasing an older property? Will the property's age be a problem?

Some purchasers hope to own a home with character, such as a Medieval cottage. Use of traditional methods, however, can worry purchasers, and East Barnet property built with traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Especially for listed buildings, .

Construction materials, such as suitable timber, may be required. Speak to your property surveyor for more information.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all East Barnet surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a boundary wall) and how is it worked out

East Barnet Homebuyer Reports an independent valuation and also a Reinstatement Cost as an integral part of the report. To fully consider the property's value the surveyor will pair awareness of the East Barnet property market and other factors about the property for instance: square metres.

Surveyors also evaluate certain fixtures and fittings and will use other assumptions, for example the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there is an absence of any problematic legal issues such as consent for alteration having been given and complied with. These will be investigated by your solicitor during the legal process.

Further East Barnet conjectures, like connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant local environmental problems like local East Barnet industrial considerations, also being considered.
