HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Colliers Wood and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

Window frame

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Colliers Wood what does a Condition Rating 1 mean for 'E5 - Windows' ?

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. Deformation to a doorway or window frame is an example of this. Elements of the house which the surveyor has determined to be in a good state of repair are awarded a condition rating of 1, but regular upkeep may still be required. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the seriousness of any issues included in the survey.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Another resident of the building mentioned that the had been issues with damage to the parapet. What should we check when the home is surveyed?

Homes in the area in good condition can be hiding serious issues with the roof. From tie beams to fascias, the roof structure as a whole will be taken into account. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a poor asphalt covering.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like repairing a bowing truss, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A local contractor can provide an estimate.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a house with Beer stone walls. Are there specific issues to bear in mind, and what does the survey cover?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of houses in Colliers Wood. Defects affecting stone-built houses in Colliers Wood can vary, weathered stone being relatively common. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

To find a specific quarried stone, speak to a Colliers Wood specialist. Enviro-Flame of 133-135 Kingston Rd, London, SW19 1LT, for example, could assist.
