HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Winchmore Hill 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.

If the Winchmore Hill property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Winchmore Hill property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

There may be a danger of white asbestos flooring materials at the house. Which types of asbestos are a concern?

Asbestos is a dangerous silicate material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials e.g. asbestos blocks.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good fire retarding qualities and it may be found in asbestos packing in stud walls.

All forms are ultimately deadly and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to break it and professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a Winchmore Hill HomeBuyer report. However, surveyors will mention suspected asbestos and will inform you of the options.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Winchmore Hill include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees e.g legal fees) and what does it include?

Winchmore Hill Homebuyer Reports an impartial valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To properly appraise the correct valuation your independent surveyor will call upon area knowledge and other factors relating to the property for instance: square metres. Your Winchmore Hill surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been used. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there are no major legal issues e.g. planning permissions being in order. Such concerns will be unravelled by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Additional local area assumptions, like services, are made in addition to environmental problems like pig farms, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Winchmore Hill home built in the mid 80s, but it has clay foundations. Will your Winchmore Hill Building Survey look into this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Winchmore Hill property, with subsidence being a common example. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a property's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. There is a real benefit in booking a Winchmore Hill surveyor to carry out your HomeBuyer Report, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
