HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Hendon property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works on the Hendon property, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Hendon property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Hendon home buyers survey check water damage, or if neighbour's houses have been affected?

A wide variety of factors can cause water damage caused by flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and the value of a house in Hendon in an at-risk area may be impacted. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. Flood water can enter a house through several routes, including patio doors. An awareness of characteristics of the Hendon area likely to affect the house also enables the building surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a HomeBuyer Report if the building surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house is at risk.

The The Silk Stream and the Deans, Edgware, Dollis, Mutton and Wealdstone Brooks and their tributaries, near Hendon, was given an updated status of 'No warnings' on 15 Jul 2012, by the Environment Agency.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there may be a risk of asbestos Artex concealed in the property. What is asbestos and can it be easily removed?

Asbestos is a dangerous substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials e.g. ironing boards.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in fire blankets.

All forms are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to move the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Hendon HomeBuyer report. Your surveyor will note possible asbestos and will offer advice.

Gas flame

Does the qualified surveyor inspect the safety of the gas flues?

The qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually examine the easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas (and oil heaters) for example, as well as gas affiliated appliances or installations such as chimney breasts. Any external fittings or housings will not be undone. Needless to say, gas is potentially deadly and if there are any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.
