HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in North End and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the North End property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the North End property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a North End House Survey Quote online or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The next-door neighbour said that loose slates had been a concern. What should we investigate during the survey?

This is a common concern for property purchasers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Many residential properties can be hiding serious roofing woes. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from valley gutters to clay tiles. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like amateur repairs.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like felting a flat roof, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. It may be advisable to source an estimate

for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.

Substandard guttering

For a HomeBuyer Report on a North End home what impact will a Condition Rating 1 have on 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

One example issue could be leaking roof drains. They are visually inspected, where access is possible. Buyers should be aware that although drainage is reported on in this section, other aspects of the water system are referred to elsewhere combined system problems.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, with a minimum of technical jargon. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate how concerning each aspect of the report is. A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed. Elements of Section E marked as condition rating 1 may however still require regular maintenance. 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.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a building proximate to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: domestic rubbish disposal. No one wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Worries might include heavy metals .

Homebuyer reports in North End will examine structural issues connected with the landfill. Your solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological database and Camden Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
