Which Home Survey is the correct choice for my prospective home purchase ?

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Woodside Park and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Woodside Park property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Woodside Park property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the mid-century home we are intending to lease, it looked like there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox - does a Homebuyer Report in Woodside Park go into detail on the electrics?

When conducting a Home Survey in Woodside Park a surveyor should usually comment on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in an unsafe state. The RICS surveyor will also provide detail on possible problems relating to things like checking the state of repair of the fitted appliances, for example electric showers. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by an electrician will usually be part of the survey. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of any recent PIR handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Woodside Park .

The IEE suggest that an electrical system check is carried out at least every 10 years (5 if letting). Always seek nearby help from a qualified electrician try Evolution Electrical Solutions Ltd , 2 Woodberry Grove, London, N12 0DR .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a property in Woodside Park with Doulting stone walls. Are there specific related issues to consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Hall Dale Sandstone to Cromwell Sandstone. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as repointing mortar with a suitable material.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Woodside Park should be able to supply local stone.

Conservation area

Are there any problems I should look into when intending to buy a property in Woodside Park in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of local factors and any effect may have with the property and its value. Property values is generally more than prices outside the area which is down to them being unspoilt. However a large number are falling into a state for example - the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors are trained to advise you if the house might be classified as such and Section I of a Woodside Park Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are raised as part of the legal process. Unapproved adjustments to the building will also be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for your legal representative.
