HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Tower Hill and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Tower Hill property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give comprehensive details of the Tower Hill property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Tower Hill, what directions can the surveyor offer for a residence constructed with brick?

Brick Tower Hill structures will show signs of various issues and defects. Your surveyor can investigate these as part of their report, with advice on the consequences were they to go untreated. One serious matter is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. Contact several local builders for quotes, including G W Brickwork of 22 Southerton Rd, London, W6 0PH on 07547 037893.

For example, running, or stretcher, bond. Consider renegotiating the price of the Tower Hill property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Conservation area

Are there any issues we need to be wary of if intending to buy a converted house in Tower Hill in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by the local council. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of relevant local area factors and the connection they have with the building and its value. The value of homes tends to be significantly higher owing to the areas retaining their original character. However many have fallen into a state of neglect for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors are expected inform you if the home looks like it may be classified as such and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are conducted during the legal process. Unapproved adjustments to the building may also be advised, however these should be concern for your legal adviser. Serenity Law Llp are a local firm situated at 150 Minories, City of London, London, EC3N 1LS should be happy to advise further. Tel: 0800 019 7773

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Tower Hill, and does our house surveyor mention it? And could it affect the property value?

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that the impact heavy rainfall can have on homes in Tower Hill is usually overlooked. Signs that gutters are damaged include rotten roofing elements.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy.However, the damage caused, where poorly maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.
