HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Edmonton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Edmonton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give comprehensive details of the Edmonton property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

If in doubt get an instant Edmonton Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we look into rainwater goods?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather this issue is rarely considered properly by purchasers. If you have visited the home in the Summer, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that gutters are a cause for concern include rotten wooden gutters. If you have doubts, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to repair.However, the damage caused, where poorly maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about bugs affecting some homes - What can we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This matter should be taken seriously. Signs may not be obvious. For example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. As some infestations can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. Your property surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns we would need to check on when planning to buy a house in Edmonton in the vicinity of Church Street conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

Church Street is in a conservation area and has been classed as very bad by English Heritage, with low vulnerability and no significant change.

Church Street is looked after by London Borough of Enfield Council at Civic Centre, Silver Street, Enfield, EN1 3XY. Call 020 8379 1005.

Unsympathetic developments to the building may be commented on, however these should be concern for the lawyer.
