HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Finsbury Park and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Finsbury Park property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Finsbury Park property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Finsbury Park House Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Damaged Render

What will a Property Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Finsbury Park.

Stucco is in fact dense render. Commonly stucco render is applied to brick that sets to a smooth and even finish. The effect is very appealing and is found on Victorian and Georgian properties. it can be problematic and Finsbury Park surveyors commonly reveal any number of problems e.g. lateral pattern like cracking revealing the underlying mortar joints. Other issues may be when dampness under DPCs that results in large areas of detachment requiring raking back and reapplying. Re-applying problems with stucco may be dear as craftsmen are becoming more difficult to find.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns we need to verify when purchasing a flat in Finsbury Park in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local councils.

Home Buyers Surveys in Finsbury Park must possess knowledge of relevant local considerations and the relation they have with the property and its value. Prices will likely be enhanced due to them being preserved.

RICS surveyors are trained to tell you whether the property looks to be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will recommend additional due diligence and enquiries are raised as part of the legal process. Unauthorised changes that do not have Local Authority approval will also be commented on but these are really more a concern for your lawyer.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A neighbour mentioned subsidence might be an issue. What subsidence information does the Finsbury Park Home Buyers Survey include?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence. Buyers in Finsbury Park should be aware, however, that there is a difference between subsidence and benign settlement. Most homes in Finsbury Park are erected with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

Subsidence can be caused by a range of factors. Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This may be referred to as groundwater subsidence. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Organic material such as peat is usually stable if kept moist by the water level, but if the soil dries out, this organic matter will decompose. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Place pine, birch and cherry trees, for example, at least 10m away. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.
