  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Harrow and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Harrow property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Harrow property's condition along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

We are purchasing a modified period mid terrace property in Harrow, do I need to spend a bit more on a full structural survey?

Structural surveys have been renamed as Building Surveys. When planning to buy an unconventional Harrow property such as a property in poor condition house, the Building Survey is now the correct property survey. It spells out full and far-reaching advice concerning the houses condition in addition to any

needs for future maintenance, following a thorough inspection of the accessible parts. There are certain limitations with a property survey as a surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the Harrow property e.g. moving heavy furniture.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect can rain have on a property?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the impact high levels of rainfall can have on houses is overlooked. As an example, flaking or efflorescence on external walls can often mean that the rainwater goods are damaged.

Luckily, issues with rainwater goods are quite easy to repair fairly cheaply, unless they are not unblocked on a regular basis. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying an older dovecot in Harrow. What effect will the age have on regular maintenance?

Some buyers in Harrow have considered buying a unique or characterful property. Use of traditional methods, however, can often be problematic, and Buildings featuring traditional methods can be difficult to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can mean long-term upkeep. If you are uncertain, speak to your RICS surveyor for more information. Erected between 1310 and 1532, Headstone Manor in Harrow is a traditional open hall and cross wing of the time.
