HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Highbury and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Highbury property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Highbury property's condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Highbury Surveyor be looking for on a stucco rendered regency home in Highbury which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is in fact just smooth type of solid render. Commonly stucco is layered over brick to form a smooth flat finish. Stucco render is very appealing and is often found on Victorian and Georgian properties. Stucco is often problematic and Highbury Homebuyer Reports frequently detail potentially expensive to remedy problems such as lateral visible cracking revealing the underlying mortar joints.

Another example of problems might be when dampness below windows that causes large areas of detachment. Re-covering problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting harder to find.

Gas flame

Does the qualified surveyor advise on the serviceability of the gas installations?

Your local surveyor will visually look at the accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the routing of any gas pipes at the property, in addition to gas associated gas installations in the house, for instance ventilation of flue (if blocked). Should there be any external fittings they will not be taken off. Gas can be fatal, should you have any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Gas Safe firms in Highbury include The Plumbing & Heating Clinic of 28 Park View, Collins Road, London, . Tel. 07956604520 and Louise France of 94, Petherton Road, London Tel. 07866430808.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Highbury. What directions can the surveyor offer?

Brick-constructed conversions do benefit from many advantages. However, they can also be affected by distinct issues. For instance, thermal movement, particularly on longer walls and should be taken very seriously. Hodges D J should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 33 Standard Rd, Bexleyheath, DA6 8DP or 020 8304 5317.

Buyers in Highbury should consider that a range of courses arrangements and colours are found in many homes built in this country. For instance, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall.
