HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Holborn and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Holborn property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Holborn property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Holborn properties at risk, and does a house surveyor check for signs of flood damage, or if the garden have been affected?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: www.metoffice.gov.uk), and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. It is strongly recommended that proper precautions are taken, before water damage ruins both the walls and floors, and contents, but a surveyor

will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. The building surveyor will usually recommend that the buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

According to the Environment Agency, no recent flood warnings were found for Holborn.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect should high levels of rainfall have on a house in Holborn, and does our Holborn chartered surveyor mention it? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Regular rainfall is common in Holborn and across the country, but the impact wet weather can have on buildings in Holborn is usually overlooked. If you have investigated the house you are buying in good weather, obvious defects may be harder to find.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve for a reasonable cost.However, the damage caused, where not unblocked on a regular basis, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a dovecot. Will the property's age be a concern?

A property's age can often be problematic. Structures featuring traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced.
