HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in West Hampstead and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the West Hampstead property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the West Hampstead property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when purchasing a property next to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms for example: inert refuse. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks include chemicals like dioxins .

Surveyors will examine structural issues connected with the landfill. Your legal representative will carry out conveyancing searches of the British Geological database and Camden Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will insects affect the purchase price of a house. What can we do?

Any questions about pests affecting a West Hampstead house may not be asked by the lawyer. When purchasing a house, this matter should be borne in mind. An affected house may not always be easy to identify, for example, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies. Remedies to insect infestation can include professional cleaning.RICS guidelines on the issue of infestations are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your home surveyor.

Asbestos roof tiles

I am concerned that there is asbestos pipe lagging insulation being found in property. What is asbestos, are there any risks and does the HomeBuyer Report in West Hampstead go into it?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials e.g. boilers.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good fire retarding qualities and it may be found in boiler cupboard. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to displace asbestos and expert advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will note potential asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.
