HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Ponders End and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ponders End property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Ponders End property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of if buying a building next to a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites take many forms for example: industrial rubbish. Of course nobody wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include complex organic chemicals. Health concerns like downs syndrome have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will notice structural defects connected with the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to Enfield Local Authority and advise you .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Ponders End, and can a Ponders End chartered surveyor check for indications of flood damage, or whether flooding has affected other houses on the street?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record, and the value of a home in Ponders End in an at-risk area may be impacted. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments. Flood water can enter a house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The property survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a property survey if the building surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house is at risk.

No flood alerts were given for Ponders End, according to the Environment Agency.
