About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Brent

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Brent and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Brent property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Brent property's state of repair along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Brent Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Flemish Stretcher bond upkeep guidance - can a property surveyor in Brent assist?

Brick houses in Brent will be affected by a range of defects, including moisture damage and badly applied render. One serious matter is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. Contact Taylor & Co for a repairs estimate at 07766 003495 or 28 Gladstone St, Beamish, Stanley, DH9 0QL.

Brent home purchasers may need to consider that a great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture feature in construction throughout Brent, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it a good idea to look into drainage? Will the RICS surveyor in Brent report on this?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which wet conditions has on buildings is ignored by home buyers. If you have only seen the house you are buying in dry weather, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that downspouts are at risk include streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering. Blocked rainwater goods can result in staining of wallpaper and damp.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve for a reasonable cost, unless they are not cleared out regularly. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Defective door frame

On the HomeBuyer Report what effect can a Condition rating 2 have on 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

A fairly common example may be cracked door glass. Outside doors are to be opened and closed, but will not force open any without keys. Broadly speaking, the seal condition of double glazing is covered.

Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2. In contrast to more serious, 'red' rated, defects, these issues do not require immediate attention. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give property buyers a clear understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention.
