HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Moorgate and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Moorgate property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Moorgate property's condition in addition to information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the advantages to commission the full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report when considering a substantially modified home?

Albeit they are often referred to as Structural Surveys by house buyers they have been reclassified as RICS Building Survey Select a Building Survey if you are considering the house mentioned. The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a mid 20th century of later Moorgate house made out of normal building materials.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a house but are worried about bugs. Is a Building Survey advisable?

Scare stories about home vermin are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as lice as minor annoyances. When purchasing a home, this matter should be borne in mind. An affected home may not always be easy to identify. As an example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Treatment for a serious infestation may include traps. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls I would need to be wary of when planning to buy a flat in Moorgate in a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas in the UK which are overseen by the local authority. Your surveyor must have relevant knowledge of relevant local area issues and any connection they have with the building and its value. House prices are typically inflated as a result of them being unspoilt. However many are falling into a state e.g. the removal front garden walls

Surveyors are trained to advise if the home could be so designated and Section I of a Moorgate Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are conducted by your legal representation. Unconsented developments to the building may also be advised in your survey, however these should be concern for your conveyancer. Mccarthy Tetrault are based in 125 Old Broad Street, City of London, London, EC2N 1AR should be prepared to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 020 7489 5700
