HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Temple Fortune and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Temple Fortune property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications on the property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give comprehensive details of the Temple Fortune property's general condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Temple Fortune House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Conservation area

Will there be any factors I should be aware of when planning to buy a building in Temple Fortune near a conservation area?

There are thousands of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors must have relevant knowledge of local issues and any bearing they have on the property and its value. Property values will be greater because of them being unspoilt. However a growing number have fallen into poor condition e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors are trained to tell you if the property is or might be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Temple Fortune Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are conducted during the legal process. Unapproved adjustments to the property may be advised but these are really more a concern for the solicitor. Baskin Ross & Co are based in 628 Finchley Road, Barnet, London, NW11 7RR should be prepared to advise. Tel: 020 8458 5688

Damaged Render

What will a Surveyor look out for on a stucco rendered Victorian home in Temple Fortune that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually just a type of render. Commonly stucco is layered over red brick that dries to a very smooth surface. The effect is highly grand in appearance and is found on Victorian and Georgian houses for example. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Temple Fortune frequently show defects such as moisture trapped behind paint (assuming painted) which cannot escape leading to worsening damp issues.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may be when moisture below windows that causes the render detaching. Remedying problems with stucco can be costly as the skills are becoming rarer.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the period property I intend to acquire, it looked like there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system - will a Temple Fortune survey go into detail on the electrics?

When carrying out a Homebuyer Report in Temple Fortune the surveyor should usually mention the state of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a poor condition.

This should include a visual check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of the unconcealed parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other things like the condition miniature circuit breakers.

Confirming the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey in Temple Fortune. Looking at any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed will usually form part of the survey.

The IEE strongly advise a Periodic Inspection is carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).
