HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Pinner Green and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Pinner Green property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give a thorough analysis of the Pinner Green property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What possible solutions are to available to resolve this?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a building and its foundations. Subsidence may be confused with settlement. Settlement does occur in newer buildings, and is rarely a cause for concern. The structure's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact. The builder will likely return to a new building after time has passed in order to make repairs.

Subsidence is the result of a number of common issues. The roots of [trees and bushes], for example, impacting the property's structure in clay soil as water is removed from the soil by plants. Inside the house, keep an eye out for doors and windows that are more difficult to open.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

Building Surveys on houses

Should we carry out the full structural survey if purchasing a defective regency property in Pinner Green as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Now often described as a Structural Survey by agents and buyers alike, it is no longer available as it has been given a new title by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. This is now the right home survey when buying an altered home such as a dilapidated house in Pinner Green. The report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) summarises far-reaching information concerning the buildings construction as well as any maintenance needs, following a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings.

Gas flame

Will the qualified RICS surveyor report on the safety of the gas flues?

Your qualified surveyor will visually examine the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at the meter location/position at the home, as well as gas related installations, for instance ventilation of flue (if blocked). Any gas fittings won't however be dislodged. Most people are aware that gas can be unsafe, should you have any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.
