HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in New Southgate and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the New Southgate property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the New Southgate property's condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can West Cornwall granite-built property be hard to maintain. Are there specific issues to consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Buyers of a Grade I listed building should consider that 'sympathetic' maintenance may be required. These restrictions are often rigorously enforced. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like mould will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it a good idea to consider guttering? Can damaged guttering decrease our property's value?

Regular rainfall is common in New Southgate and across the country, but the effect which heavy rain has on New Southgate buildings is rarely considered properly by home buyers. As an example, spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts strongly suggest that the downspouts are at risk. If you are concerned, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy, if not neglected. If untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our building survey search for indications of flooding?

A wide variety of factors can cause flood damage, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses in flood-risk areas.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. Flood water can enter a New Southgate property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a New Southgate property lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the property surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the New Southgate property is at risk.

Near New Southgate, the The Lower Lee Tributaries, including the Nazeing Brook, Ching Brook, Cobbins Brook, Pymmes Brook, Rags Brook, Salmons Brook, Turkey Brook, Trinity Marsh Ditch and the Small River Lee status was recently updated to 'No warnings' by the Environment Agency.
