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 .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed a property we are meaning to buy, the agent said that there was no RCD on the fuse board - will a surveyor advise the general state of the electrical system?

When carrying out a Edgware Home Buyers Survey your RICS surveyor will typically remark on the overall electrical system if it looks like they are in a hazardous condition. This should include an overview (i.e. without undoing fittings) inspection view of any uncovered sections of the wiring on top of issues like checking the type of any electrical fittings in bathrooms or reporting on the state of a representative sample of light fittings. Verifying the location of the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician should be part of the Homebuyer report in Edgware.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Edgware - Which issues relating to the roof will be investigated?

Questions like this are often asked of Edgware surveyors by Edgware buyers who are aware that property will suffer damage to the roof, including. From the purlins to the roof battens, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like amateur repairs.

Repairs to a dilapidated roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A Edgware contractor with positive reviews should be able to assist with a quote. Speak to Mummery M W of 10 Whitchurch Pde/Whitchurch La, Edgware, HA8 6LR on 020 8951 1889 to request a quote.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Sussex bond upkeep guidance for the Edwardian terrace we are purchasing?

Edgware brick-walled conversions can show signs of numerous defects, such as frost damaged pointing. One frequently reported defect is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall.

Edgware home purchasers may need to consider that a range of techniques have been used across the country for centuries, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear.

If the Edgware surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
