HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Wood Green and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Wood Green property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Wood Green property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 18th Century coast house in Wood Green. What should be budgeted for maintenance?

Many buyers in Wood Green hope to own property with real personality. Older construction methods and materials, however, can create difficulties for an owner. Wood Green homes featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations be the source of maintenance problems? I am buying a house in Wood Green. Does the Wood Green HomeBuyer Report cover this, and what defects will be reported on?

There are a number of concerns associated with clay soil. Specific issues include considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. Signs like sticking doors or separation of the skirting board from the floor can be early indications of very serious structural issues. Steps like swift repair of any collapsed drains can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Gas flame

Does the qualified surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas installations?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will visually look at the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like the condition of the meter for instance, in addition to gas related fittings for example - chimney breasts or flues. However, the Wood Green chartered surveyor won't remove any gas fittings nor will the surveyor run any tests of any kind on the serviceability of the system. Of course, gas is potentially fatal, if you have any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer immediately.

The regulations require landlords must to conduct appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply are harsh .
