HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Woodside Park and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Woodside Park property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Woodside Park property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Woodside Park, and will the building survey search for signs of water damage?

It is estimated that over two million houses and flats are at a high risk of water damage caused by flooding, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses and flats in flood-risk areas.

In addition, the Building Survey may offer suggestions for better flood defences.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. The residential surveyor will usually recommend that the buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the mid-century home we are intending to lease, it looked like there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox - does a Homebuyer Report in Woodside Park go into detail on the electrics?

When conducting a Home Survey in Woodside Park a surveyor should usually comment on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in an unsafe state. The RICS surveyor will also provide detail on possible problems relating to things like checking the state of repair of the fitted appliances, for example electric showers. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by an electrician will usually be part of the survey. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of any recent PIR handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Woodside Park .

The IEE suggest that an electrical system check is carried out at least every 10 years (5 if letting). Always seek nearby help from a qualified electrician try Evolution Electrical Solutions Ltd , 2 Woodberry Grove, London, N12 0DR .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What effect does clay soil have on a house's foundations? Will the Woodside Park Home Buyers Survey consider this?

Factors from fungal decay to termites can cause significant expense for a home-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of several issues. Specific issues include soil swelling. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. Visible results may be anything from minor wall cracks in the lounge to sticking window frames. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered.
