HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Fitzrovia and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Fitzrovia property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Fitzrovia property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a building in Fitzrovia , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What will our property surveyor in Fitzrovia pay attention to during the survey?

Fitzrovia properties in good condition can be blighted by roofing woes. Any part of the roof or loft, such as tie beams, ought to be checked. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a poor asphalt covering.

The expense of repairing a bowing truss, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a Fitzrovia roofing specialist a quote for any suggested work.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

In a Fitzrovia HomeBuyer Report, what might a Condition rating 3 mean for roof coverings?

In Fitzrovia, an example may be the use of asphalt on PVC, or other incompatible sealants and coatings, in the chimney's construction.
