HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in South Tottenham and which is cheaper?

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

If the South Tottenham property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations on the South Tottenham property, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the South Tottenham property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a structure with a converted attic in South Tottenham - What will our South Tottenham building surveyor look for?

Houses in South Tottenham in otherwise fine condition can be blighted by problems like incorrectly applied waterproofing. From the concrete tiles to the collar ties, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. The RICS surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

The prospect of large bills for roofing jobs (such as replacement of a failed dormer) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases,

this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a builder can provide one.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the RICS Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) regency home in South Tottenham.

Stucco is in fact a sort of flat finish render. Typically stucco is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to form a smooth flat finish. Stucco render is highly appealing and is often found on Georgian houses. it can be problematic and South Tottenham surveyors sometimes discover potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance water trapped beneath paint (assuming painted). Other issues might be when dampness beneath flashings which causes large areas of detachment. Resolving problems with stucco may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting harder to find.

Window frame

For a HomeBuyer Report on a South Tottenham property, what will 'E5 - Windows' cover?

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. As buyers in South Tottenham are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Red, amber and green ratings give property purchasers indicate how concerning each aspect of the report is.

An example defect for this is stiff sash windows. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.
