About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Crews Hill

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Crews Hill and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Crews Hill property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Crews Hill property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it to investigate guttering? Will the property surveyor report on this? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Regular rainfall is common in Crews Hill and across the country, but the effect which damp weather has on homes in Crews Hill is often overlooked by purchasers. If you have only visited the property you intend to purchase in dry conditions, obvious defects may be harder to find.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix.

External walls

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Crews Hill house or flat what does a green light rating mean for 'E4 - Main walls' ?

In Crews Hill, an example may be cracks to non-structural walls. Foundations and possible defects within the walls will not be investigated. Observations on the Damp Proof Course are also reported here.

A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed, but maintenance may still be necessary. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of if buying a building near to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. commercial waste material. Of course nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Risks include methane gas generation .

Building Surveys and valuations in Crews Hill will note structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct conveyancing searches of the British Geological data sets as well as Enfield Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .
