HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Hornsey Rise and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Hornsey Rise property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Hornsey Rise property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should I obtain a full structural survey when considering a doer-upper Edwardian townhouse near Hornsey Rise as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Conventionally called a Full Structural Survey, it is no longer available and has been renamed by RICS and the proper name is actually now the Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report will suffice if investigating a non period unmodified Hornsey Rise house of standard construction materials and methods. We recommend that you carry out a Building Survey for the house you are planning to buy.

You should be aware of several provisos are integral with any survey as a surveyor will not be able to open up the structure of the property of look into the internal condition of chimneys.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown a sixties house we intend to purchase, the agent said that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, will the surveyor advise the general state of the electrical system?

When preparing a Hornsey Rise Home Survey a RICS surveyor will typically remark on the state of the electrics if it appears that they are in a hazardous state of repair. A professional surveyor should also concerns such as ensuring supplementary bonding is in the usual place or verifying the condition of a representative sample of light fittings.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician will usually form part of the survey in Hornsey Rise. Inspecting the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) strongly advise a Periodic Inspection should be carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).

Window frame

In a Hornsey Rise HomeBuyer Report what effect can a an amber light rating have on 'E5 - Windows' ?

One example issue could be a sash window with a damaged mechanism. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention. Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point. This may not be urgent, however. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Hornsey Rise property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. If a Hornsey Rise property does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.
