HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Dollis Hill and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Dollis Hill property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Dollis Hill property's condition along with information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do I need to check guttering? Will the RICS surveyor in Dollis Hill report on this? Can damaged guttering decrease our property's value?

As a frequent surveyor of houses in the area, I find it strange that this issue is not given enough thought by property buyers. Signs that gutters are at risk include spalling masonry. Blocked rainwater goods can result in staining of wallpaper and damp.

Luckily, guttering issues are generally easy to resolve.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I should look out for when planning to buy a property in Dollis Hill in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local authorities.

Your surveyor must have local knowledge of local issues and any relation may have with the home and its value. House prices will be inflated which is down to them being in their original state. However a large number are falling into disrepair e.g. increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Surveyors will inform you whether the location looks like it may be so designated and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are carried out during the legal process. Unauthorised developments to the property should be reported in the Dollis Hill survey, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.

Gas flame

Does a RICS surveyor examine the state of repair of the gas installations?

Your local surveyor will visually check out the accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) where relevant, as well as gas affiliated installations like chimney breasts or flues. The Dollis Hill RICS chartered surveyor will not remove gas fittings nor will they carry out any tests of any kind on the system. Gas can be fatal, should there be any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

The regulations stipulate that all landlords must to carry out appliance and installation inspections every 12 months. Non compliance penalties are criminal .
