HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Tufnell Park and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Tufnell Park property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Tufnell Park property's general condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Do we need to order a full structural survey when considering a extended regency cottage near Tufnell Park as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Recurrently described as a Full Structural Survey by many home buyers, this survey is no longer available as it has been given a new name by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. If buying an unusual Tufnell Park property like a tatty house - it is now the most appropriate property survey. This survey will detail thorough and crucial information on the buildings construction and uses in conjunction with any needs for future maintenance, following a thorough visual inspection of the accessible areas of the house. Boundary walls and fences should be inspected.

Gas flame

Does the surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas installations?

The qualified RICS surveyor will visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at gas (and oil heaters) at the property, in addition to gas connected fittings like fixed external ventilation hearths. External covers however, won't be taken off. Needless to say, gas can be deadly, if you have any worries about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Regulations stipulate landlords have to complete appliance and installation inspections annually. Non compliance penalties are harsh .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Tufnell Park home built in the early 30s, but it has clay foundations. Does the Tufnell Park Home Buyers Survey cover this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Tufnell Park buyers, with severe changes in the water table level and soil swelling being relatively common. Drought, for instance, can have a obvious contracting effect on clay soil, squeezing the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. Signs like sticking window frames or widening cracks can be early indications of very serious structural issues. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.
