HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Harringay and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Harringay property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Harringay property's condition as well as including advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have been told that subsidence in Harringay might be a concern. What are the risks, and what subsidence issues will the property survey reveal?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a house and its foundations. Subsidence may be confused with settlement. Settlement does occur in new houses, and is rarely a cause for concern. The structure's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact. Often, homes in Harringay are constructed from a range of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

Cracks that appear without warning may be a strong indication of subsidence. On the inside, keep an eye out for new cracks in the plaster, and 'rippling' in wallpaper that isn't caused by damp.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority.This need not be expensive.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. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.

House Prices

I am going to acquire a property in Harringay (N4) for around £272, 851. What considerations will a Harringay chartered surveyor allow for during a home buyers survey ?

There are many factors which could affect house prices from the tenure to the modernity of the kitchen. It can help to set against flat prices achieved in the area for comparable properties. The average flat price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £259, 051, which is £13, 800 less than the amount you are paying. The house/flat average was £359, 244. 43B, Grand Parade, London, Haringey, Greater London, N4 1AQ was purchased for £73, 000 .

The most accurate way for you to get a formal property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default.

Stone block wall damage

Can Wooton stone-built houses be difficult to repair. What potential issues must we watch out for?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Issues including deteriorating mortar affect many stone-walled houses. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to houses, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used in door construction. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.
