HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in North Finchley and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the North Finchley property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations on the property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give a thorough analysis of the North Finchley property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Shall I have the full structural survey when investing in a dilapidated forties home in North Finchley as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes referred to as a Full Structural Survey by many agents and buyers, this survey is no longer available and has been superseded by RICS and the right term is now the Building Survey. It is now the best choice of home survey when buying a modified house, for example a neglected house in North Finchley. A Building Survey details thorough and frequently critical professional advice about the property's construction materials in conjunction with any needs for future maintenance, following a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings. .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be bugs at the property we're buying, but we are not certain - Will a RICS surveyor look into this?

Property are generally free of vermin, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Regrettably, vermin can be costly to fix and put your health in danger. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Remedies to vermin can include chemical treatment.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled property cause issues for purchasers? What should we look in to, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

From Swaledale Fossil Limestone to Plumpton Red Lazonby Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.
