HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Golders Green and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Golders Green property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, you should you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Golders Green property's general condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a house in Golders Green and found cracks along the bathroom ceiling, could this be evidence of subsidence? What subsidence issues does the RICS Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. Fortunately, subsidence can be repaired. Less common than subsidence, heave occurs when the ground is forced up rather than down.

Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include new or growing cracks in plasterwork.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect should rain have on a Golders Green home, and does our Golders Green building survey mention it? Could it affect the property value?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather rain and the effect it can have on Golders Green houses are rarely paid due attention by house purchasers. If you have visited the house you are buying in dry conditions, obvious defects may be harder to find. Blocked rainwater goods can result in rotten roof timbers.

Fortunately, this is generally easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Conservation area

Are there any considerations I would be advised to be wary of if purchasing a house in Golders Green in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are many thousands official conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Golders Green need to possess local knowledge of local considerations and any connection may have on the property. Property Prices are typically enhanced as a result of the areas resisting change. However many areas have fallen into a poor state e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Surveyors can be expected to note if the planned purchase might be in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Golders Green Homebuyer Report will suggest additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted during the legal process. Unconsented changes to the property will also be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for your lawyer.
