HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Park Royal and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Park Royal property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Park Royal property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any factors I would be advised to check out if planning to buy a converted flat in Park Royal in the vicinity of a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are thousands official conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local councils.

A Building Surveyors must have relevant knowledge of local area factors and any connection they have on the building and its value. Values will probably be higher than non conservation area equivalents as a result of them being unspoilt. However many of them are falling into have fallen into a state e.g. badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors are trained to advise you whether the location might be is designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are raised as part of the legal process. Unconsented extensions that do not have Local Authority approval may also be noted but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a Park Royal house but are worried about vermin. What should we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. When purchasing a building, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Treatment for pest problems may include professional cleaning and removal of infected furniture. Your property surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Park Royal, and does our building survey mention it? Could it affect the property value?

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that the impact wet weather can have on Park Royal buildings is rarely considered properly by home buyers. Signs that downspouts are a cause for concern include water pooling below gutters. Poor drainage can lead to a damp or flooded cellar.

Whether buying in Park Royal or elsewhere, difficult downspouts does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. However, if the drains are not unblocked on a regular basis, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.
