HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Queens Park and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Queens Park property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Queens Park property's state of repair as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice get a Queens Park House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a property in Queens Park , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What should we investigate as part of the survey?

This is a common concern for property purchasers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many properties could unfortunately be experiencing problems like missing tiles. Every element should be checked, e.g. slates, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Roof maintenance need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will

be facing. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rainfall an issue in Queens Park, and does our house surveyor in Queens Park mention it? Could it affect the property value?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet this issue is not given enough thought by house purchasers. One indication that rainwater goods are worth a closer look is spalling masonry. Poor drainage can lead to rotten roof timbers.

Whether buying in Queens Park or elsewhere, difficult rainwater goods does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to remedy, if not neglected.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Queens Park home surveyor look for water damage, or if other properties have been affected?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. The HomeBuyer Report may also, where appropriate, offer suggestions for better flood defences.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the residence or on adjacent sites. Also included on Environment Agency's flood alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

The Environment Agency confirm that no recent warnings have been for Queens Park.
