Which Building Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    A RICS Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Enfield) will also be conducted by a MRICS/FRICS chartered surveyor but is more thorough. Opt for this option for non standard property such as wychert houses.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Enfield and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Enfield property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Enfield property's condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when purchasing a home proximate to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: non-hazardous waste material disposal. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks might include heavy metals. Health issues like congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Enfield will examine structural problems resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as Enfield Local Authority and advise you .

Damaged Render

What will my RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered Victorian period home in Enfield.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really just dense render. Normally it is layered over brick that dries to an even finish. It is highly grand in appearance and is found on Victorian and Regency properties for example. Stucco is similar to mortar. It may contain lime in it in addition to a grid underneath to stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Enfield Building Surveys sometimes discover issues such as trapped moisture leading to the surface falling away which need attention

Another example of problems associated with stucco could be when the application is taken down to ground level and bypasses the Damp Proof Course. Resolving problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Flemish bond upkeep suggestions, can a Enfield property surveyor help?

Brick-constructed houses in Enfield demonstrate several benefits over stone-built property, but they can also suffer from a number of issues, including DPC failure and vertical cracking. A serious concern is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Rafferty A J of 102a Pole Hill Rd, Uxbridge, UB10 0QE on 020 8841 3418.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks. Consider renegotiating the price of the Enfield property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.
