HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Gospel Oak and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Gospel Oak property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Gospel Oak property's condition as well as an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do I need to check downspouts? And could it affect the property value?

Both in Gospel Oak, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on property are not considered by purchasers. If you have only visited the new home in on a clear day, problems are unlikely to be visible. If you are worried, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

In most cases, guttering issues are usually easy to remedy, if not neglected. If not cleared out regularly, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Gas flame

Will the chartered surveyor report on the safety of the gas appliances?

Your qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually examine the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as whether the mains is connected for example, as well as gas related fixtures, for instance fixed external ventilation hearths. The Gospel Oak qualified surveyor won't remove any external fittings and surveyors are not qualified to carry out any tests on the system. Gas can be unsafe, should there be any worries about gas of any type, call an engineer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have been informed that clay soil can be a source of difficulty for property in Gospel Oak. Can a Building Survey consider this?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Gospel Oak home. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly, such as cracked plaster. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Gospel Oak, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
