HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Highbury and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Highbury property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Highbury property's condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Highbury Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Conservation area

Are there any things I need to check on when buying an extended house in Highbury near a conservation area, particularly in relation to house prices?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas in the UK which are designated by the local authority. Surveyors in Highbury are required by RICS to have local knowledge of local area factors and any relation may have with the building. Property Prices is, more often than not, enhanced which is down to conservation areas being largely unspoilt

RICS surveyors can be expected to advise you whether the building could be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised by your legal adviser. Unsympathetic adjustments to the building may also be reported in the Highbury survey but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Highbury. Can a house surveyor search for flood damage?

The lives of many owners in Highbury and across the UK have been seriously affected by flooding, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. It is strongly recommended that prevention methods are considered, before water damage starts, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. The surveyor may ask the seller about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a property next to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: non-hazardous waste material disposal. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Risks include hazardous chemicals. Health problems like abdominal wall problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveys in Highbury will consider any structural defects connected with the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as Islington Local Authority and advise you .
