HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Kentish Town and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Kentish Town property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations on the Kentish Town property, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Kentish Town property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Defective door frame

For the Kentish Town HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects impacting 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

In Kentish Town, an example may be double or triple glazed doors where the glazing seal has been lost or broken. Outside doors are to be opened and closed, assuming keys are available. In general, glazing and safety glass issues are also checked.

Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect does rainfall have on a property? Could it affect the property value?

As a frequent surveyor of homes in the region, I find it strange that the effect which rainfall has on buildings in Kentish Town is overlooked by property buyers. One indication that drainage systems are a cause for concern is rusted iron elements. This can lead to fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

The good news is that guttering issues are generally easy to fix. Where this is not cleared out regularly, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Kentish Town. Can a building survey check for signs of flood damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses and flats in flood-risk areas. The Environment Agency maintain a flood alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. appropriate drainage. The surveyor may ask the occupier if the residential property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

No recent Kentish Town flood alerts have been found (source: Environment Agency).
