HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Finchley and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Finchley property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations on the property, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Finchley property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Finchley Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when purchasing a flat next to a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: commercial refuse. Of course nobody would want to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries might include tars and other hazardous materials. Potential health issues for example gut problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Finchley will notice structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological data sets in addition to Barnet Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a Finchley house with Ham Hill stone walls. What matters should we be aware of?

Upkeep fees for stone-built properties can be higher than for more standard. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than walls of irregular construction. This is a generalisation however, as limestone or sandstone-built and regularly-coursed walls can decay rapidly when exposed to more extreme environmental conditions or pollution. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes repointing mortar with a suitable material.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect does damp weather have on our new Finchley property? Can damaged drainage decrease our property's value?

Regular rainfall is common in Finchley and across the country, but the impact wet weather can have on buildings is not given enough thought by house purchasers. For instance, spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts will likely suggest that the downspouts are worth a closer look, and may lead to rising damp. In most cases, these defects are quite easy to repair, if identified early.However, the damage caused, where not cared for, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.
