HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Edgware and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Edgware property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Edgware property's general condition and it includes information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a property near to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites take many forms for example: domestic waste material. Of course nobody wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Risks might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health concerns for example congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Edgware surveyors will notice structural issues resulting from the site. Your solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological data sets as well as Harrow Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a property built Darley Dale stone. What should we look in to?

Purchasers in Edgware should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits to go for a full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Full Structural Surveys are no longer offered by RICS Surveyors as a new which has been classified as the Building Survey, is now offered by surveyors. A HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a post fifties unmodified Edgware house assembled from conventional building materials. A Building Survey is certainly the most suitable one to choose for the house mentioned. Usually within 2 to 3 days after a thorough survey of the accessible parts of the house, a formal written report will be emailed and posted to the buyer going through comprehensive and crucial insight concerning the condition of the building. There are several limitations exist with a property survey - your local Edgware surveyor is not authorised open up the structure of the house nor can they assess serviceability of a boiler. Out buildings will, in addition, be checked out.
