HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Islington and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Islington property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Islington property's general condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Islington Survey Quote on our site or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor said that mould had been a concern, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What will our property surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

Islington houses that are otherwise ideal could unfortunately be experiencing difficulties with the roof, for example, incorrectly applied waterproofing. From sheeting to ceiling joists, every element of the roof will be considered. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like badly installed felting.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Islington, but it is a health and safety necessity. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a local roofing specialist can provide one. Contact Clough R A Roofing Ltd of 100 Drayton Pk, London, N5 1NF on 020 7288 0138 to request an estimate.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a house in Islington, does the home buyers survey check for indications of flooding, or if nearby homes have been affected?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m residences are in danger of flooding, and the value of a residence in an at-risk area may be impacted. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. Flood water can enter a house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Conservation area

Are there any considerations I would need to look into if purchasing an extended house in Islington inside St Mary Magdalene conservation area ?

St Mary Magdalene is in a conservation area and has been classed as very bad by English Heritage, with medium vulnerability and deteriorating. For further information visit their website or call the administrator. There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with local councils. St Mary Magdalene is administered by London Borough of Haringey Council at Civic Centre, High Road, Wood Green, London, N22 8LE - Call 020 8489 0004.

A Building Surveyors must possess knowledge of local area issues and any connection they have on the property and its value. House prices will be higher owing to them being largely unspoilt

RICS surveyors are trained to report if the planned purchase might be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unauthorised changes that do not have Local Authority approval may also be noted, however these should be investigated by your conveyancer.
