HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Kensal Rise and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Kensal Rise property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Kensal Rise property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Substandard guttering

In the HomeBuyer Report what are common Condition rating 3 defects for 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

One example would be downspouts discharging onto the roof. The drainage system is inspected visually. Other related matters are found elsewhere in the HomeBuyer Report any defects in a combined system. Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. They can include defects which compromise the structural integrity of a house. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections

of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when purchasing a property proximate to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. industrial rubbish. Nobody really wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include structurally instability. Health concerns like gut problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Kensal Rise will consider structural issues connected with the landfill. Your lawyer will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets as well as Brent Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My wife spotted signs of insects in the loft conversion. Will a surveyor look into this?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies to a serious infestation can include professional cleaning or removal or excision of affected timber. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.
