HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Highgate and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Highgate property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Highgate property's general condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the property we plan to buy - What can we do?

Buyers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Remedies to pests can include destruction of tainted materials.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor be focused on, on a smooth stucco regency house in Highgate which we wish to buy.

Stucco is just a specific type of render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick that dries to a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is very aesthetic and is often found on Regency homes. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Highgate frequently show potentially expensive to remedy problems such as horizontal cracking that describes the underlying mortar joints. Other potential problems can possibly result be when moisture enters beneath DPCs that results in large areas of detachment. Fixing problems with stucco can be costly as the skills are getting harder to find.

Building Surveys on houses

Should I commission a full structural survey if buying a abandoned forties cottage near Highgate as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

They are often and incorrectly described as a Structural Survey by many, this survey is no longer available as it has been given a new moniker by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail for a mid 20th century of later Highgate house of typical construction materials. The RICS Building Survey is definitely the suitable one to choose in relation to the house mentioned. Two to three days after an exhaustive inspection of any accessible parts of the house, the surveyor's formal report is emailed (pdf format) and posted to the client setting out any crucial professional advice on the construction of the house.

There will be a few limitations with a property survey to be aware of as a surveyor will not be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric of the Highgate house for example undoing electrical fittings.
