Looking for a Home Buyers Survey? Which survey is the right choice?

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Bloomsbury and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Bloomsbury property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Bloomsbury property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations I should look into when buying a flat in Bloomsbury near a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Bloomsbury need to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local area factors and the effect may have on the property and its value. Property Prices will likely be more than prices outside the area due to the areas retaining original features.

Surveyors are expected tell you whether the building is possibly is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are carried out by your legal representation. Unauthorised adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may also be reported, however these should be concern for your lawyer. Vincent French & Browne are a local firm situated at Rugby Chambers, Camden, London, WC1N 3QU should be able to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 020 7831 4994

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled homes create upkeep problems for buyers? What related issues should we be aware of?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Brown Woodkirk Sandstone to Farmington Stone. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a property in Bloomsbury and saw that the lounge door frame was skewed. Is this a serious risk, and what subsidence information does the Bloomsbury home survey include?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Subsidence and settlement are often confused. Settlement usually occurs in newly constructed homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. Their weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, which will cease after a matter of months. Most homes in Bloomsbury are built with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage. Subsidence is the result of a number of common issues. One such issue is that soil on ground which slopes downward is not as stable as that sitting on horizontal ground. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer could then become unsteady and begin to slide downward. Inside the house, keep an eye out for new or growing cracks in plasterwork.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Unfortunately, even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can in rare cases take months. A Bloomsbury surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.
