HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Willesden and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Willesden property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works on the property, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Willesden property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when buying a flat near to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. hazardous waste disposal. No one really wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Risks might include heavy metals. Health concerns for example congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Willesden RICS surveyors will consider any structural issues connected with the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct conveyancing searches of the Landmark databases and Brent Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the home we intend to purchase it appeared that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses, will a Homebuyer Report in Willesden write anything on the wiring and fusebox?

When performing a Willesden Homebuyer Report the RICS surveyor should comment on the electrical system if it looks like they are in an unsatisfactory state of repair. A Surveyor will also things like the mains supply. Looking at any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will usually be part of the survey in Willesden.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick chimney on this converted apartment needs work - what should we do?

Brick-constructed conversions in Willesden demonstrate several benefits, but they can also show signs of a range of defects. This could be anything from horizontal cracking to DPC failure.

For example, brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level and may require immediate attention. Celtic Brickwork may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 73 Alma Rd, Maesteg, CF34 9AN or 07577 918822.

Brick-build property have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years, leading to a great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.
