HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Barbican and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Barbican property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations on the Barbican property, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give you comprehensive details of the Barbican property's general condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this residence is located on a flood plain. Is there a major flood risk? Would our chartered surveyor check flooding?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m homes are in danger of flood damage. Both buyers and home owners in areas in danger of flooding are right to be worried. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. The home survey may also, where appropriate, offer suggestions for better flood defences.An awareness of characteristics of the Barbican area likely to affect the house also enables the building surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Also included

on Environment Agency's flood alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a property in Barbican and the seller's agent has suggested that it has been built with Wooton stone. What defects must we watch out for, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

There is a long list of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

Window frame

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Barbican property, what will 'E5 - Windows' cover?

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, with a minimum of technical jargon. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are.

For a Barbican house, one issue is a rotted sash window. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.
