HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Hadley Wood and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Hadley Wood property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Hadley Wood property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

For further advice get a Hadley Wood Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get brick upkeep suggestions for the Georgian house we are purchasing?

Brick-built buildings feature several advantages, but they will also indicate a range of defects, ranging from badly applied render to efflorescence. These issues will be mentioned in the report, with directions for remedy. One serious matter is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Hunt P R of 150 Hall Av, Rushden, NN10 9EU on 01933 410226.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance caused problems in the old property. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What should we do about roof repairs?

Houses in Hadley Wood in good condition could unfortunately be experiencing roofing woes. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from valley gutters to sheathing. Factors like a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

The expense of wholesale replacement, 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. A roofing contractor in Hadley Wood can provide an estimate.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the period property we want to buy it looked like there is an old fuse board - does a the surveyor advise on the electrical system condition?

When carrying out a Hadley Wood Building Survey a qualified surveyor will remark on the overall electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in a poor condition.

This should include a visual look-over of the open areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as issues like whether there is an off-peak /on-peak supply. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documentation from the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician will usually form part of the survey.

Confirming the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the Homebuyer report in Hadley Wood .

The IEE strongly advise that a PIR is carried out every ten years (or every 5 if letting).
