HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Haringey property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Haringey property's general condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Haringey Home Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Haringey. What recommendations will a surveyor in Haringey make? What impact do Haringey environmental conditions have?

Brick-constructed apartments in Haringey do benefit from many advantages, but they can also be affected by diverse problems. An issue of particular concern is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. Rafferty A J may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 020 8841 3418 or 102a Pole Hill Rd, Uxbridge, UB10 0QE.

For home purchasers in Haringey seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Haringey residential surveyor search for flood damage?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m properties are exposed to flood damage and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. In addition, the home survey may recommend maintenance.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the home in Haringey or on adjacent sites. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a home survey if the home surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the home in Haringey is at risk.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see a sixties house I want to move into it looked like there were damaged electrical sockets; does Haringey survey advise the general state of the electrical system?

During a Home Buyers Survey in Haringey your surveyor should report on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a hazardous state of repair.

This should include a non invasive check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of the unconcealed parts of the wiring or fusebox in addition to potential areas for concern such as if there is an on-peak/off-peak mains supply. Inspecting the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey.

Confirming the existence of any evidence of any recent PIR conducted by an electrician will be part of the survey in Haringey .

The IEE advise that an electrical system check is carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).
