Which Home Buyers Survey is the right choice?

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    A Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Camden) is also conducted by a MRICS/FRICS qualified surveyor but is more exhaustive. Choose this option when buying a non standard e.g. architecturally unusual buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Camden and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Camden property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Camden property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a property proximate to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: non-hazardous waste disposal. Nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health concerns for example spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Camden will find structural problems connected with the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological databases and Camden Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The estate agent mentioned subsidence is a problem impacting the apartment. What are the risks, and what can be done to resolve subsidence if it is identified?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence. A builder should return to a new home after six months to make good any settlement cracks.

In areas where clay soil is common, drought can cause the water table to drop. This dries out and shrinks the clay, pulling on the building's structure and causing movement. In extreme conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. 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. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed a property I am meaning to move into, it appeared that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit, will a Homebuyer Report in Camden go into detail on the general state of the electrical system?

When carrying out a Camden Homebuyer Report your surveyor should mention the condition of the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsafe condition. This will include an overview inspection of any uncovered parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as concerns such as checking the condition of fitted electrical appliances, for example heaters.

Verifying the existence of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Camden. Inspecting any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician will usually form part of the survey in Camden .
