HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Stockley Park and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Stockley Park property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Stockley Park property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get London brick guidelines for upkeep for the Tudor house we are buying? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-constructed conversions in Stockley Park feature several advantages, but they can also be subject to numerous defects, such as erosion. Your house surveyor can investigate these as part of their report, with directions for remedy. One particularly serious issue is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. A local builder should be able to assist. Call D & R Brickwork, 1 Pinner Rd, Pinner, HA5 5QZ on 07956 152058 for a quote for repair work.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of

bricks, to the rare, such shiner bond describes bricks are laid horizontally as with more common bonds, but the with the wider face parallel to the wall. The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it calculated?

Stockley Park Homebuyer Reports a surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost as standard. To work out an accurate estimate of the value of the building your RICS valuer will factor in area knowledge and other things about the property e.g. size. Surveyors also reflect on materials used and make certain other assumptions such as the ground is not land filled.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. It will also be assumed that there aren't any major legal problems like the tenure being as indicated (e.g share of freehold). Advice should be sought from your solicitor.

Additional local Stockley Park area conjectures like services, are made as well as any significant environmental problems like busy roads, which will also be factored in.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

In a Stockley Park HomeBuyer Report, what might a Condition rating 3 mean for roof coverings?

Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents.

Section E2 defects are comprehensively checked, provided that access is possible. A cracking asphalt roof is an example.
