HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Highgate and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Highgate property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Highgate property's general condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Highgate Homebuyers Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance brings up bad memories for us. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. Will access to the roof of the structure be an issue?

Residential property in Highgate in otherwise fine condition can often hide damage to the roof. From decking to collar ties, the whole roof will be taken into account, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A Highgate builder can provide an estimate.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Highgate and are looking for property with Sussex bond brick. What suggestions can a property surveyor in Highgate make?

Brick-constructed converted property in Highgate feature several advantages in comparison to other forms of building, but they can also be affected by diverse problems. This could be anything from crumbling mortar to lack of a damp proof course. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. C B Building Solutions should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 173 Brighton St, Wallasey, CH44 8DU or 0151-208 7283.

For home purchasers in Highgate seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our Highgate surveyor look for flooding damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause floods, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a residential property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The HomeBuyer Report will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor, but this information may not be accurate.
