Looking for a Property Survey ? Which of the 3 should you select?

    The RICS Homebuyer Report should be selected if buying a home made of conventional materials i.e. brick & tile, in reasonable repair and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

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 caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we consider gutters? Will the surveyor report on this?

I find it odd that the effect which rainfall has on a residence is overlooked. As an example, corroded downspouts strongly suggest that the rainwater goods are damaged.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive, unless they are not cared for. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when purchasing a property near to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. hazardous waste. Of course nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane .

Homebuyer reports in Lisson Grove will examine structural problems linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark data sets and Westminster Local Authority and advise you .

Window frame

On the HomeBuyer Report what does 'E5' cover?

In Lisson Grove, examples include blocked (or missing) drain holes. 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. As buyers in Lisson Grove are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific house being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. If a house does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.
