HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in North Wembley and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

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

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the North Wembley property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are intending to purchase a residence in North Wembley, does the residential surveyor inquire into signs of water damage?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a home will be secure against flooding, and the value of a home in an at-risk area may be impacted. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the home in question is in danger, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. properly constructed drainage, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the advantages for choosing the full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Full Structural Surveys are now defunct as a new type of survey which is classified as the Building Survey, is now offered by surveyors. The HomeBuyer Report is enough if investigating a 60 year old or less North Wembley home built out of standard construction materials. The Building Survey is definitely the appropriate choice for an unusual or modified house. Two to three days after an exhaustive inspection of the accessible areas of the house, a non prescribed format of report will be posted to the client specifying any significant information on the construction of the house. Be aware that certain limitations exist with any residential survey - a qualified RICS surveyor is not authorised force or open up the fabric of the house for example, or comment on the regulatory compliance of heating systems.

Stone block wall damage

Can properties built with stone generate lots of maintenance costs for residents? Which defects should we consider?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of North Wembley property. Defects such as algae affect many stone-walled North Wembley property.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Purchasers renovating North Wembley property should be aware that stone matching services are available, which may be necessary for listed buildings. To source stone quarried in North Wembley, you can contact local suppliers.
