HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Kentish Town property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations on the Kentish Town property, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Kentish Town property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get a Kentish Town Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof brings up bad memories for us, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What should we do about roof repairs?

Questions like this are often asked of Kentish Town surveyors by buyers who are aware that property can be blighted by problems like poor insulation. From the concrete tiles to the tie beams, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like a complete replacement, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely.

This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A local roofing specialist with a recommendation from a friend or family member should be able to assist with a quote.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect does rainfall have on a property? Could it affect the property value?

As a frequent surveyor of homes in the region, I find it strange that the effect which rainfall has on buildings in Kentish Town is overlooked by property buyers. One indication that drainage systems are a cause for concern is rusted iron elements. This can lead to fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

The good news is that guttering issues are generally easy to fix. Where this is not cleared out regularly, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Damaged Render

What will a RICS Surveyor take into account on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency home in Kentish Town that I wish to buy.

Stucco is really a kind of smooth render. Usually stucco is applied to brick hardens to form a very smooth surface. The effect is highly appealing and is often found on Regency buildings. it can be problematic and Kentish Town Homebuyer Reports sometimes discover any number of problems such as lateral cracking that follows the mortar lines between the brick. Other potential problems might be when dampness below sills that results in detachment. Re-coating Stucco problems can be difficult as the skills are getting harder to find.
