HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Stamford Hill and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Stamford Hill property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Stamford Hill property's state of repair as well as including information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Stamford Hill, and think we saw signs of insects in the kitchen - Will the Full Structural Survey investigate this?

Any questions about pests affecting a Stamford Hill property may not be asked by the lawyer. This issue should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Remedies to a serious infestation can include traps. If you strongly suspect an issue with house longhorn beetle, or any pest, speak to your Stamford Hill surveyor

Deteriorated timber

In a Stamford Hill HomeBuyer Report what does 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' cover?

In Stamford Hill, an example may be buckled or undulating metal sidings. Problems impacting the roof are checked here. These are inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Ornamental joinery such as finials or mock Tudor panelling will be investigated.

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are.

Conservation area

Are there any issues we need to be wary of when intending to buy an extended house in Stamford Hill near a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Surveyors in Stamford Hill need to possess relevant knowledge of local considerations and any relation they have with the property. House prices will probably be higher than non conservation area equivalents due to them being unspoilt. However many are falling into poor condition e.g. the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors are expected inform you whether the building is/might be so designated and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will recommend additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted as part of the legal process. Unapproved adjustments to the building will also be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by your conveyancer.
