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 .

External walls

In a Haringey HomeBuyer Report what are common defects Condition rating 2 impacting 'E4 - Main walls' ?

Quite a common example is undulating brick walls. The surveyor's report on the condition of the external walls will consider all visible defects, an in-depth building survey may be required if serious foundational issues are suspected. Damp proofing, including the DPC, is also included here. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give home purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for home purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a property. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Condition rating 2 suggests

that the aspect of the Haringey property in question will need some work, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled property create issues for residents? Are there specific issues to bear in mind, and what does the survey cover?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of Haringey buildings. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like replacing missing or badly worn stones.

Gas flame

Will the local surveyor give details on the condition or the safety of the gas installations?

Your local surveyor will visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the mains gas installation for example, in addition to gas affiliated fittings for example - balanced flues. Should there be any external fittings or housings they will not however be taken off. Of course, gas can be dangerous, should you have any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.
