HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Seven Kings and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Seven Kings property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations on the property, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Seven Kings property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Seven Kings Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Conservation area

Are there any considerations I should check out if buying a house in Seven Kings near a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas in the UK which are governed by the local authority. Surveyors in Seven Kings must possess relevant knowledge of local area issues and any connection may have on the property and its value. Property values will be higher owing to them being in their original state.

Property surveyors are trained to advise you whether the location looks like it may be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Out of keeping developments to the property should be noted, however these should be concern for the solicitor.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is a risk of asbestos insulating board affecting the house. Which types of asbestos are a concern, will this be a hazard and does the Seven Kings building survey report on it?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous mineral. Some types were commonly found in the building materials such as duct connectors. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe lagging insulation. Technically all forms are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered however, on no account to break the asbestos and expert advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a Seven Kings HomeBuyer report. Surveyors will note potential asbestos risks and will recommend relevant tests.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the home I am hoping to move into, the agent said that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; does a surveyor advise electrical defects?

When performing a Seven Kings Home Buyers Survey the RICS surveyor will usually remark on the state of the electrics if it looks like they are in an unsafe state of repair. A Chartered surveyor will also report on things like examining the nature of the electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or checking the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. A check for the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by an electrician on the property being surveyed should be part of the survey in Seven Kings.

The IEE advise that a periodic test should be carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).
