Looking for a Property Survey ? Which of the 3 should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Holloway

    The Homebuyer Report should be chosen if you are buying a home constructed from standard building materials such as tile & brick, in reasonable repair and built in the last 100 years.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Holloway and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Holloway property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Holloway property's general condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should I commission a full structural survey if buying a converted regency bungalow in Holloway as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Recurrently referred to as a Structural Survey by many home buyers, it is now defunct and and this most technical survey has been given a new moniker by RICS(Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the correct term is actually now the RICS Building Survey. This is now the correct home survey when purchasing an unusual house - such as an older Holloway house. A Building Survey specifies crucial advice concerning the homes standard of construction and repair as well as any maintenance needs after a thorough inspection.

Damaged Render

What problems will the RICS Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) home in Holloway which we wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact just a form of render. Usually stucco is applied to brick to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. It is highly beautiful and is was often applied to Regency buildings. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Holloway sometimes reveal defects such as lateral hairline cracking that follows the mortar joints underneath

Another example of problems could be when water below DPCs which causes large areas of detachment. Re-covering Stucco problems can be dear as renderers are becoming harder to find.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a house surveyor search for possible water damage?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses in flood-risk areas.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. Flood water can enter a home in Holloway through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the home in Holloway or on adjacent sites. The RICS surveyor may ask the agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

The Environment Agency have updated the status for the Areas at risk include properties adjacent to Holmefield court, and properties on Sunny Bank Road and Sunny Bank Close., near Holloway, to 'No warnings'.
