HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Swiss Cottage and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Swiss Cottage 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 a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Swiss Cottage property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What should we pay attention to when buying an old building in Swiss Cottage? Will the age of the house be a concern?

For traditionally-built Swiss Cottage property, age can sometimes be an issue. Homes featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to repair. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary

to find Traditional materials, which could result in higher ongoing expenses.Contact your property surveyor for more information.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when purchasing a home proximate to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: commercial rubbish. No one wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns include complex organic chemicals .

Surveyors in Swiss Cottage will consider any structural issues connected with the site. Your solicitor will commission environmental searches of the British Geological data sets and Camden Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about insects. Should we get a house surveyor?

Purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem. Regrettably, pests can seriously reduce the value of a property and affect the health of residents. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Treatment for vermin may include professional cleaning. If you strongly suspect an issue with carpet beetle larvae, or any pest, speak to your surveyor
