HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in East Barnet and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the East Barnet property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give a thorough analysis of the East Barnet property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in East Barnet, and can a East Barnet house surveyor check for water damage?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a house survey will inform your decision. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the house in question is in danger.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a property in East Barnet, such as via seepage through walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the current owner, but this information may not be accurate.

The Environment Agency have updated the status for the The Lower Lee Tributaries, including the Nazeing Brook, Ching Brook, Cobbins Brook, Pymmes Brook, Rags Brook, Salmons Brook, Turkey Brook, Trinity Marsh Ditch and the Small River Lee, near East Barnet, to 'No warnings' on 25 Dec 2012.

Gas flame

Does a East Barnet surveyor advise on the condition of the gas heaters?

Your RICS surveyor will locate and visually check out the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like whether the mains is connected at the property, as well as gas associated appliances such as prefabricated flues. Any gas fittings won't actually be undone. Gas is potentially fatal, should there be any concerns about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a property built in the early 40s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to be the cause of many issues? Will the HomeBuyer Report look into this, and what defects will be reported on?

There are several concerns associated with clay soil. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including soil compaction or compression. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. Signs like sticking window frames or cracked plaster can be early indications of very serious structural issues. A East Barnet surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
