HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Finsbury Park and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Finsbury Park property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Finsbury Park property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Finsbury Park House Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of if buying a flat proximate to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms including commercial rubbish. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health issues for example birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Finsbury Park will examine structural issues connected with the landfill. Your lawyer will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark data sets and Haringey Local Authority and advise you .

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the period property I am planning to acquire I noticed that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; will the Finsbury Park surveyor report on the general state of the electrical system?

When conducting a Finsbury Park Homebuyer Report your RICS surveyor will usually mention the electrical system if it is suspected that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state.

This will include an overview look-over of exposed sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. in addition to concerns such as reporting on the condition of the fitted electrical appliances such as heaters or reporting on the condition of a sample of switch gear. Verifying the location of the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey.

The IEE recommend that a Periodic Inspection is carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What negative impact does clay soil have on a house's foundations? Can we expect the Finsbury Park Building Survey to mention this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Finsbury Park buyers, with uneven soil compaction and consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss being relatively common. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a property, such as cracks along the living room wall. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
