HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Hatch End and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Hatch End property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Hatch End property's condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a residence in Hatch End, does the RICS surveyor look for indications of flooding damage?

Heavy rain, clogged drains and overflowing streams can cause flooding damage and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flood water can enter a Hatch End house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect Hatch End house enables the RICS surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even

if the property has not itself flooded before. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a building close to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including industrial waste material disposal. Of course nobody would want to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Worries include tars and other hazardous materials. Potential health issues such as spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will find any structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological databases in addition to Harrow Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented to say there is concern white asbestos cement at the property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a deleterious substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials for example acoustic tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic sound absorption properties, it may be found in acoustic ceilings. Technically all forms including white are dangerous and might lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful never to disturb asbestos. Professional advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will report on the risk of asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.
