Home Buyers Survey in Colney Hatch

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Colney Hatch and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Colney Hatch property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Colney Hatch property's condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should I acquire a full structural survey if buying a neglected Edwardian cottage in Colney Hatch as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Periodically referred to as a Full Structural Survey by many, this survey is no longer offered has actually been renamed by RICS and the correct term is now the RICS Building Survey. If buying an unconventional Colney Hatch property e.g. an older house, this is now the right selection of survey. A Building Survey provides full and often crucial information about the buildings state of repair along with any maintenance needs a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings. Certain external buildings will, in addition, be checked out as part of the survey.

Your surveyor must possess sufficient knowledge of local area factors and the relation they have on the property and its value. Prices is usually inflated due to the areas being preserved. However many of them are falling into are falling into poor condition for example - ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors are trained to inform you if the property is/might be classified as such and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are conducted during the conveyancing process. Unapproved extensions to the property may be commented on, however these should be investigated by the lawyer.
