HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Neasden and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Neasden property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Neasden property's condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 17th Century warehouse conversion in Neasden. What consequences will the rafter roof have on repairs?

Some buyers in Neasden plan to buy a old, characterful home one day. Use of traditional methods, however, can worry purchasers, and Buildings employing traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. This can result in higher ongoing expenses.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls we need to check on if buying a property in Neasden in conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in the UK which are governed by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors must possess local knowledge of local considerations and the connection may have on the building and its value. Property Prices are typically enhanced as a result of them being preserved.

Surveyors can be expected to tell you if the property could be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Neasden Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are conducted by your conveyancer. Out of keeping changes that do not have Local Authority approval may be reported in the Neasden survey but these are really more a investigated by the lawyer. Gordon Shine & Co are based in 61-63 Chamberlayne Road, Brent, London, NW10 3NG should be prepared to advise further. Tel: 020 8969 7033

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a apartment in Neasden and saw that there is a 14mm gap between the kitchen wall and the door frame, could this be evidence of subsidence? What subsidence issues does the Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is movement in a structure's foundations. Fortunately, subsidence can be remedied.

Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. Inside, keep an eye out for new, suddenly visible cracks in brick or render.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.This need not be expensive.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Using large concrete pins, placed beneath current foundations and extending deep into the ground, underpinning is expensive, totalling £1000s, but it can be very effective. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, to remedy both the causes of the subsidence and the resulting damage to the property itself.
