HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Wood Green and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Wood Green property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Wood Green property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

When planning to buy in Wood Green, should we be worried about a flood risk, and will the chartered surveyor inquire into signs of flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected nearby homes?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: The Guardian), and owning a house in Wood Green in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. It is strongly recommended that prevention methods are considered, before any water damage happens, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. properly constructed drainage, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

No Wood Green flood warnings have been given (source: Environment Agency).

Gas flame

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

Your RICS chartered surveyor will visually look at the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like the condition of the meter for instance, in addition to gas related fittings for example - chimney breasts or flues. However, the Wood Green chartered surveyor won't remove any gas fittings nor will the surveyor run any tests of any kind on the serviceability of the system. Of course, gas is potentially fatal, if you have any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer immediately.

The regulations require landlords must to conduct appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply are harsh .

Stone block wall damage

Can property in Wood Green partially constructed with stone cause issues for residents? Are there specific matters to bear in mind?

Poor quality Paint can often cause problems for properties with stone walls. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Maintenance tips include clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.
