HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Pinner and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Pinner property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Pinner property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What can be done to remedy subsidence if subsidence is found during the home survey?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a building, but some degree of movement will always occur. New properties, for example, will need to settle under the home's own weight.

Subsidence is the result of a number of common issues. For example, water leaking from a broken drainage will wash away the earth protecting the building's foundations. This can effectively reduce the volume of the soil surrounding the structure, meaning it can no longer support the weight of the building. In some cases, the presence of buried organic material, which then decomposes, can also destabilise all or part of a foundation. This causes the subsoil to be compacted as its volume is reduced, by the sheer weight and pressure of the building above.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes, which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when buying a property near to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill take many forms including domestic refuse. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Risks include structurally instability. Health problems like downs syndrome have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors in Pinner will note structural defects linked to the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as Harrow Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will insects affect the purchase price of a property in Pinner. Should we get a surveyor?

Houses are generally free of vermin, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value. Signs may not be obvious, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Treatment for insect infestation may include removal of infected furniture. Your surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.
