Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect may high levels of rainfall have on a Kilburn building? Will the surveyor report on this? Where there is damage, what should we do?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather this issue is not given enough thought by home buyers. If you have investigated the house in good weather, issues may have been hidden.

Signs that drainage systems are worth a closer look include water pooling below gutters.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to repair, if identified early.

Building Surveys on houses

Shall I opt for a full structural survey when acquiring a un-loved Victorian bungalow near Kilburn as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Recurrently, and incorrectly, referred to as a Structural Survey, it is no longer available and has been given a new title by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. RICS would recommend that you go for a Building Survey for the house you are planning to buy. The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail for a non period unmodified Kilburn property of conventional construction materials. You should be aware of several limitations come with any survey insofar as a RICS surveyor cannot (unless safe to do so) open up the structure of the house for example, or advise whether drainage meets appropriate regulations.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to pay attention to when buying an older property? What effect will the construction have on maintenance?

Some buyers have looked at purchasing a home with character. The age of a structure, however, can concern buyers. Kilburn property built using traditional methods can be expensive to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced.
