What HomeBuyers Survey should I choose for my planned home purchase ?

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Mill Hill and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Mill Hill property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Mill Hill property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a 1982-built home in Mill Hill and saw cracks across the render on the outside walls. What options are to available to remedy this?

Movement of a building on a structural level is called subsidence. In general, homes in Mill Hill are built with a variety of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

There are a number of factors capable of causing subsidence to Mill Hill homes. One such issue is that soil on sloping ground is not as stable as that sitting on horizontal ground. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer may become unstable and begin to slide downward. A sudden, severe shift in

weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either as a result of poor construction, materials or existing damage.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

English Heritage

I am planning to purchase a flat close to Shoreham Old Fort , will this affect the property's value?

Shoreham Old Fort is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local interest will usually enhance the attractiveness of an area. Other local sites of importance are The Marlipins.. The RICS surveyor will consider many local factors when carrying out the homebuyer report in Mill Hill. See the English Heritage website for more information on Shoreham Old Fort.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will my RICS Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) home in Mill Hill which we wish to buy.

Stucco is a form of render. Normally it is applied to brick that sets to a smooth and even finish. It is highly attractive and was common on some Regency homes. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Mill Hill commonly highlight any number of problems for instance lateral cracking that follows the mortar lines between the brick.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could be when water gets in beneath flashings that results in the render detaching. Re-coating problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming harder to find.
