HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Palmers Green and which one is cheaper?

If the Palmers Green property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Palmers Green property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to spend a bit more on the full structural survey when acquiring a dilapidated Victorian house near Palmers Green over a HomeBuyer Report?

Recurrently referred to as a Structural Survey by house buyers, this survey is now defunct and and this most technical survey has been reclassified by RICS and the proper name is actually now the Building Survey. If you are buying an unusual Palmers Green property, for example an older house, this is the most appropriate choice. A Building Survey will give frequently critical professional advice in relation to the property's standard of construction and repair as well as any maintenance needs, shortly after a thorough inspection of the accessible areas of the house.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the period property I expect to acquire it appeared that there is an unsafe electrical system, will a surveyor go into detail on the electrics?

When preparing a Homebuyer Report in Palmers Green the home surveyor should usually report on the state of the electrics if it looks like they are in a poor state.

This will include a non invasive (i.e. without undoing fittings) inspection check of the superficial areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. in addition to possible problems relating to things like inspecting the nature of any electrical fittings in bathrooms or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of light fittings and switch gear. Inspecting any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician will usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Palmers Green.

The IEE advise that a Periodic Inspection Report be completed every 10 years (5 if letting).

Defective door frame

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Palmers Green what might a green light rating mean for 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

All doors leading outside are checked, but will not force open any without keys. Broadly speaking, draughts and damp penetration around the frames will be included. Lintels which are sagging or missing above doors is one example. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate how concerning each aspect of the report is. A 'green' condition rating of 1 confirms that no repairs are required. Nevertheless, the surveyor may still recommend that regular upkeep is carried out. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the house. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.
