HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Lisson Grove and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Lisson Grove property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give comprehensive details of the Lisson Grove property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the home surveyor consider indications of flood damage, or if nearby homes have been affected?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and home purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. It is strongly recommended that proper precautions are taken, before any water damage happens.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a house in Lisson Grove, such as via poorly installed doors. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A next-door neighbour warned us about pests on the street. Should we get a house surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. 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, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Treatment for an infestation may include destruction of tainted materials. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Stone block wall damage

Will a converted barn with stone walls cause issues? What should we look in to, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Problems which impact stone-built Lisson Grove property can vary greatly, with issues like algae being quote common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.
