HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Seven Sisters and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Seven Sisters property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Seven Sisters property's state of repair as well as including information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Will your Seven Sisters Home Survey look into this?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including soil compaction or compression. In Seven Sisters's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Seven Sisters house's foundations, forcing them inward. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the house will be considered. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor be focused on, on a smooth stucco coated Victorian home in Seven Sisters that I wish to buy.

Stucco is actually just a form of render. Usually stucco render is layered over brick that sets to a smooth flat finish. The effect is very attractive and is was often applied to Georgian buildings. Stucco is often problematic and Seven Sisters Building Surveys sometimes show issues for instance lateral visible cracking that follows the lines of mortar in the brickwork

Another example of problems associated with stucco may be when water beneath DPCs that causes the render detaching. Re-covering problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are getting harder to find.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent mentioned that the had been issues with damage to the parapet, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What should we do about roof repairs?

Questions like this are often asked of surveyors in Seven Sisters by property purchasers who are aware that property will suffer roofing problems. From sheeting to ceiling joists, all aspects of the roof will be considered. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

High estimates for roofing jobs (such as laying tar paper or felt) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal. Contact Albany Brent Ltd of 1 Grange Rd, London, E17 8AH on 020 8520 1331 for an estimate.
