HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Tottenham Hale and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Tottenham Hale property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Tottenham Hale property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Tottenham Hale, and will the building survey check for possible flooding?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record; sensible owners and purchasers in Tottenham Hale are right to consider precautions.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure.

Flood water can enter a property in Tottenham Hale through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the property in Tottenham Hale or on adjacent sites. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the seller, but this information may not be accurate.

According to the Environment Agency, no recent flood warnings were found for Tottenham Hale.

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) home in Tottenham Hale that I wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact a form of render. Usually stucco is applied to brick that sets to a smooth and even finish. The finish is very attractive and is common on some Georgian properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and Tottenham Hale surveyors sometimes highlight any number of problems such as damp trapped behind paint coatings.

Another example of problems can possibly result be when water under flashings which results in detachment. Re-coating Stucco problems can be costly as the skills are getting harder to find.
