HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in South Harrow and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the South Harrow property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the South Harrow property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

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

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I should be conscious of when purchasing a house in South Harrow inside a conservation area, particularly in respect of to house prices?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas in the UK which are governed by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors must have knowledge of local area factors and any effect they have on the building. Property values is generally enhanced due to them being largely unspoilt

Surveyors are expected note whether the location is possibly so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are raised by the conveyancing solicitor. Unconsented changes to the building should be reported but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in South Harrow and are looking for property with brick. What input does you give?

South Harrow properties with brick walls can be affected by a range of defects. This could be anything from thermal movement to weathering. For instance, brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level and should be taken very seriously. For more information, contact a local builder, Stones Les of 58B West St, Thorne, Doncaster, DN8 5QY on 01405 816178.

For instance, basket weave bonds or stretcher bond may be used in the construction of properties in South Harrow.

If the South Harrow surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Gas flame

Does the South Harrow surveyor inspect the condition of the gas installations?

Your qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually check out any accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like the meter location/position as part of the survey, as well as gas connected installations for example - balanced flues. The external fittings however, won't be detached. The gas system will not be tested at all. Needless to say, gas is potentially deadly, should there be any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer immediately.
