HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Upper Holloway and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Upper Holloway property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Upper Holloway property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to investigate when buying an old building? What should be budgeted for upkeep?

Vernacular architecture can concern buyers. Upper Holloway homes built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be challenging to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. Speak to the surveyor for more detail.

House Prices

There is a potential buy to let semi detached property in N19 - Upper Holloway for £812, 404. What considerations will a RICS surveyor allow for when valuing house prices in Upper Holloway ?

There is a vast array of things that might affect property values like any number of structural defects or the location and proximity of nearby schools. One method is to analyse values recorded in the same area for similar houses.

The average house price registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £787, 904, which is £24, 500 less than the price you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £496, 568. 2A, Carriage House, Tavistock Terrace, London, Islington, Greater London, N19 4DB a semi detached property sold for £710, 000 .

The only way for you to get an impartial home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report in Upper Holloway which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as standard. Your chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

The surveyor should attend the property in addition to factoring in all other location variables that might affect house prices.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The seller mentioned subsidence might be an issue. What subsidence information does the Upper Holloway Building Survey include?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Home buyers can confuse subsidence with settlement. Settlement will often occur in more modern homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. The structure's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed moisture builds up in the soil, causing the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

Subsidence can result from several issues, some common throughout Upper Holloway. One such issue is that soil on ground which slopes downward is not as stable as that sitting flat. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer could then become unsteady and start to slip downhill. Signs of potential subsidence include new or growing cracks in exterior brickwork.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. 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. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.
